My thoughts and condolences to the Goulet family. Rick was a very good friend and will be deeply missed. He was a giving person and genuinely cared for everyone he knew. I will miss his late night phone calls, sense of humor and his warm smile. I spoke with Rick last Sunday and he was doing what he loved best...playing euchre and enjoying the company of friends. He was happy. For those of us that knew Rick, our world is suddenly smaller.
-- Bill Blake
Janine, Kat and Family- I'm so sorry for your loss. I had the pleasure of meeting Rick only a hand full of times, but those few times were fun. I know how close you two were to your brother, my heart goes out to you. You and your family in my thoughts and prayers.
