  1. Rick believed television could be far more than it was, and pursued that dream. He built a creative nirvana for us at the Maryland Center. RIP Dr. B.

  2. Rick was totally unique, period! He stood out even in a field that boasted many outstanding performers. He was all the things you want in a leader, a fabulous communicator himself, a teacher among and for his colleagues, a leader among equals, a finder and developer of talent, a wonderful companion at work and among his peers, respected for both his knowledge and his wisdom. . . . . Rick was unique even among his professional associates.

    Most of all we loved him as much as we admired him.

  4. I worked at the law firm of Schwartz, Woods & Miller for 49 years. MPT was one of our very first clients and they still are. I met Rick when I was about 19, had just joined the firm. I told him recently that among all our hundreds of clients, he was the only one I was madly in love with. NO one made me laugh like he did. The most unforgettable man I have ever met. RIP my dear friend, I can’t wait to laugh with you again.
