My best recollections of Rick and Pat are from Auntie Ria at their home in Lyndhurst and sleeping there with trains rumbling by all night. Then family get togethers at the Lake Wallkill Missouri Lodge and a day with Rick and Walt on the swim float in the Lake. I was a young teenager seeking advice from my older cousins who had already been in the military. Later in life I remember eating dinner at my sister's house when Rick and Pat brought their three young girls for dinner. So many great memories. We aged well together over the years and those memories are as fresh and real as new fallen snow. Thanks Rick for being a part of my life. Cousin Pete
