    Rick and I met in 1974 and were friends for all these years. We had many fun times dancing at discos in the late 70’s. We participated in the Friendship Force exchange between Atlanta and Brussels in 1978-1979 and traveled around Belgium and France. As we grew older in Atlanta, we frequently enjoyed dinner together before we moved to Savannah. I am happy Rick visited us twice after we moved to Savannah in 2013. I will miss him and our frequent talks on the phone. He was such a smart guy and a great friend.
