I am so very sorry about the death of Rick. I had bought many antiques from him. I was looking him up to see if he was still in business. I miss him very much. If you can send an email to me if he left antiques to be sold or auctioned I appreciate it. He called me Doc. Michael should remember me . Linda Mounts

Michael, I am so sorry to hear about Rick's passing. I enjoyed my time with him when he came into outpatient Nursing. I have prayed for him and hoped he passed peacefully. Thoughts and prayers for all those who knew him

So sorry for your loss, Rick and my mom were very good friends in the flea market line, he was one of the very few dealers she trusted to be honest and above board in all his dealings, they had mutual respect for each other! I bet they are renewing their friendship in heaven. Prayers to all.
