I worked with Rick at Acadian and was a patient of his in Lafayette. More than anything he was a true friend. I will never forget his warm and genuine personality. Our deepest sympathies are with his family and they will be in our prayers.

Claudia, Joe and Kimberly , I got to the church just before the funeral so I didn’t get a chance to talk to any of you. It was a beautiful tribute to a beautiful man. Rick was my doctor for many years and he always made me feel so special. He was a prince of a man and so loved all of you. Much love to you! Gail Bourgeois
