From Carl Wiberg:
I was introduced to Rick and Dolores by my wife to be, Amy. She holds them with such high regards. They made me feel right at home. I got the feeling from Rick that he was sizing me up, making sure I was the right one for his close friend. I was honored to call him my friend and family. Even though we spent only a handful of days over the last 4 years, I had some great memories with him golfing, hanging out in his yard, and during my wedding week. I was looking forward to spending even more time with both Dolores and Rick. I will miss him immensely.
