The Gift of Opportunity
I had the great privilege of meeting Rick and Stacy through a story they were featured in for the Texas A & M Foundation. They had planned a gift to support the university's College of Architecture. As I'm sure you (as family and friends) know, Rick was proud of his Aggie education, loved his career and had a heart for helping others.
As editor of the magazine, I had many interactions with Rick leading up to the story's publish date. He was so excited about this story and the impact his and Stacy's gift would have in the future. The printed magazine mailed late last week, so I'm not sure Rick ever had the chance to see his story in print. However, I thought it would be nice to share with all of you as an opportunity to honor Rick's life and his cheerful giver spirit. Here is a link to the article: https://cdn.txamfoundation.com/Publications/Spirit%20of%20Sharing/SpiritofSharing_Spring-2020_Digital-Reduced.pdf (Rick and Stacy's story is on page 12).
There's no doubt in my mind that Rick is wearing maroon in heaven right now, greeting old Aggie loved ones with a "Gig 'em!" and a bright smile.
