    Thank you for all of the knowledge and the friendship that you shared. It's unfortunate that we only saw the tip of the iceberg.

    Via con Dios, my friend

    Rickie,

    Garrett and I have always had a great deal of admiration and respect for you and I just wanted to let you know that you and your family are in my prayers. You have been an true asset to the numismatic community with your extensive knowledge and your willingness to share it with others.

    As a Marine I'm sure you know that before adopting the motto of "Semper Fidelis" (always faithful) the USMC used the motto "first to fight" and fight you have. You have faced this battle with courage, conviction and grace and I'm so very sorry that this enemy has proven to be such a formidable opponent. I pray that God grants you peace as you begin your next journey. Semper Fi.

    Thanks for all the great advise, both personal and currency related Rick. The CT forum won't be the same without your knowledge and personality. You've always had my back, and you'll always be remembered. I wish it was "see you later" instead of farewell my friend.

    Rick, You have been an asset to this paper money forum, in fact I believe it has largely been due to you that increased interests have brought many collectors here to discuss their paper money addictions. Thank you also for assisting several of us with acquisitioning Gene Hessler's engravers books. Thankfully I have a piece of your collection:

    At some point in all of our lives, trivial matters like collecting coins, banknotes etc take a side step and our priorities turn towards what is more important - that of our families, friends etc. I wish you the best on this new journey you are stepping into.

    Rickie,

    I am so sorry to hear that you are leaving this forum. Through our conversations I have been given a wealth of knowledge from you that I use every day with my note collection. Your posts were insightful and inspiring at times and you were always a class act interacting with everyone else.

    I do hope and pray that the time you spend with your family gives you the sense of peace and encouragement you are looking for. You are in our wishes, hopes and prayers.

    Everyone else here at CT, we are losing a wealth of knowledge here at CT. I challenge us all to try and fill the enormous shoes being handed down to us.

    Your knowledge and your willingness to help fellow collectors has always been admirable, I always had up-most respect for you. You have built a collection off passion and shared this passion on others. Your kind and constructive words will echo within us for times to come, your presence will undoubtedly be missed.

    I thank you for the time you shared with us Ricky, fare well.
