I wanted to share my heartfelt sadness to Libby, Scotty and all of Rick's friends. I was unable to come to his memorial on Friday due to working out of town.
Rick was always such a charming kind man to me and it was always a joy to spend time with him. I know he was a rock for his family and their loss just can't be imagined. My love to you all, and my prayers of healing as well. I'm so so very sorry. God bless you all.
Your friend always,
Gary Seiler

Rick RIP buddy!

The world was a better place because of you Rick. Raft ups were so much fun, we would sit on your boat and watch all the fun! You will be missed. We will continue to support Rick Jr., Scotty and Libby through this. God rest.

Rick dancing with me at my wedding

Rick and Libby have been my second set of parents for nearly 20 years now. I will miss Rick terribly. The way he looked at me out of the corner of his eyes when he wasn't quite approving of something i did. Or when he called me Jeanne Meannie in a way that only Rick could. He will forever me in my heart.
