If you wish, memorial contributions to Lewy Body Research (Alzheimer Society), A.R.C.H., F.J. Davey Home Foundation or a charity of your choice would be appreciated by the family.

Very special thanks to the amazing staff at the F.J. Davey Home who cared for Rick over the past several years. To the teams of Birch Lane 3, Dr. Ziado and Dr. Ianni a simple thank you does not adequately express our gratitude for the compassion and care that was provided to Rick. You all were truly his angels on earth.
