Sending good wishes to Rick Kopec
« on: May 14, 2020, 09:44:10 PM »
Rick would prefer no one knew this, as he likes to fly under the radar and not call attention to himself...but our fearless leader has just gone through triple bypass surgery. He is reported to be doing well. As someone who has gone through open-heart surgery myself, I know this can be a slow and somewhat painful recovery process. Let's offer him whatever encouragement we can to assist him through this.

Good luck, Rick. Hope you feel much better quickly and can get back to riding herd over the unchecked masses ASAP!

Rick is a fighter and survivor may times over.  Sorry that he has this challenge.  Wishing him a speedy recovery with lots of aloha to him and Coleen. 8)

Prayers for a full and speedy recovery.
These cars are meant to be driven so enjoy the hell out of all of it. Not just the look of it when its all cleanCS
