Rick, we first met back in 2011 it was in Pogo's Beer room. You were the first player to accept me as your friend and welcomed me to Pogo. We have had many laughs over the years and if I could, I would so give you my couch that you always wanted. You always hosted a great tour. I will miss you more than you'll ever know. RIP in peace my friend. To Rick's family, may the Lord Bless you and comfort you during this difficult time of grief. Please accept my sincere condolences.
