I will miss my big brother Rick. While not seeing a lot of each other over the last years since my move out West, we were very close growing up - he was the one who taught me how to 'waltz'. I also remember him scolding me after I first learned to drive telling me "get your left foot off the brake, pretend you only have a right foot when driving an automatic".

I am comforted by the fact that I did call Rick on his 76th birthday (Dec 21st) and we talked. My last words to him "I love you", his to me "Love you too Sis, thanks for calling"

Rest in peace Rick - I am sure you are with Denise, Sean, Mom, Dad and John.

Sister, Elaine
