Who was "Rick" Vanstory Ricardo?
...He was born March 23,1962, and began working as a case manager for Horizon House Delaware in June of 2003. Over the next four years, Rick consistently demonstrated the dedication, compassion, and enormous heart that made all the difference in the lives of the participants he served, that inspired his coworkers to do their best each and every day, and that fostered leadership and empowerment among all who knew him. Even as he courageously faced the bone cancer that would claim his life, Rick remained a constant source of hope and strength; paired with the dignity and grace with which he lived every day of his life, these qualities are the legacy he has left us. Rick passed away on July 23,2007, but his memory lives on through the work we continue in his spirit, and the building we dedicate in his name, on the day that would havebeen his 47th birthday: The Rick van Story Resource Center, established March 23, 2009.
