So sad to hear of Rick's passing upon our return from a vacation. It seems like only yesterday when he first walked into my coin shop and we began a long friendship of sharing our hobbies as close friend. We both had worked for IBM, played golf and loved to talk about the history and fascination of collecting coins and anything old. Going to coin shows was always fun, traveling in search of unusual items. The story of our first golf match brings us to Florida, where Rick had selected the course and also provided an extra set of his clubs for me to use. Of course Rick's clubs were for right-handers and I being left handed posed a concern for Rick. I told him that I would use his club and this was to be a fun match anyway. Well, throughout the match he kept commenting me on how well I was hitting the ball. I didn't tell him until we were finished, that I actually grew up with 4 older brothers that were all right handed and that I had to learn to play golf using their hand-me-down clubs. We laughed about that day for years. So sorry we have to say good-bye to a best friend.
