Rick and I spent some wonderful time together before GOD called him home and

One day we'll meet again. And we'll laugh about all the trouble we caused, like children get into when they're 15. I've heard as we get older we lose our short term memory, but retain more of our long term memory. I hope so. I have some incredible memories of a good part of my youth spent with my friend Ricky. My heart goes out to the Kaloust Family. I miss you all.

I was very sad to hear about Rick's passing. My condolences to the whole Kaloust family at this very sad time. Joyce, no mother should ever have to experience this. I am sending you a virtual hug and one to Kim as well. What a devastating loss. (My mom, Lorraine Cullivan and I went to Cabo San Lucas with you and Kim almost ten years ago~)

My dearest Joyce,
We are at a loss of words to be able to convey to you how much this news has saddened us. Please know that you and your family are in our heart and prayers and if there is anything at all that we can do for you, just let us know. The loss of one's child has to be so unbearable. It is something that we as parents never expect to have to go through.
Not ever having

I'm so sorry for your loss. I first met Rick when he visited OneAmerica for an National Education Conference held in Indianapolis. I most remember his warm smile and strong handshake. Mr. Kaloust was always so kind and a pleasure to work with. He will be missed. God Bless you and your family.

I'm so saddend to hear the news of Rick's passing. Although I didn't know him well the times we crossed paths in High School or summers in Gloucester were always filled with high energy and excitement that only Rick could bring. He was truly one of a kind and a real people person. Please accept my deepest sympathy and know that I am thinking of you and your family during this time.

So shocked and saddened to hear about Ricks' passing. I will always remember him as a kind soul who always had a slightly mischievous smile on his face that was in fact the antitheseis of what he was all about. Rick was my friend many years ago but I will always remember him and am so sorry for his family. My prayers and best wishes ... Mark Reardon.

John, Susan, Derek, and Nikki,

My deepest sympathy and heartfelt condolences to you and your family. A brother is a special person and Rick was nothing short of that. May you find comfort in the many memories you once shared.
