I am very sorry to hear of Rick's passing. I was in school with him and was a shot putter with him as a freshman in school. Rick was always a great guy. My condolences to his family. I know that you will miss him.

I remember Mr. Hartwell from many years ago when he would come in and rent movies from Econo Video. He was such a nice man. I am so sorry for your loss.
