    I worked with Ric at Hackley Hospital for many years a few years back when he owned Ka’ya his prized Doberman Pinscher. Ric was a good friend and I have never met a more kind, warm, and generous person; plus such a hard worker. My prayers are with Tim, Abbey, and the rest of Ric’s family; Ric was one in a million and will be forever missed.
