I was blessed to work with Mary Ann and Rick during my years at the Dallas VA SCI Center. I’m sorry to hear of Mary Ann’s death and remember how wonderful she was to everyone she met. Mary Ann and Rick were the sort of couple I wanted to emulate—good to each other and good to those around them! I miss you guys! The pic is from the amazing good-bye party thrown by the SCI team when I left in 2003.

Dear Rick and Family, I just found out about Mary Ann’s passing today. Words can not even begin to express my sympathy. I was both blessed and lucky to work with you and Mary Ann at the WR VAMC Spinal Cord Injury Unit . You both were part of the A1-A2 family. The care both of you showed both personally and Professionally to our Vets was second to none. I shared great times with Mary Ann at the sci conferences but really the best times we had were at the VA were you treated me like family . Rick your blessed with a great family and I’m sure Mary Ann Is always with you . Please accept i both Cathy and my condolences . Love , Mark Joseph
