Going through some of my mothers things today and came across the name Pete Teets, Mechanicsburg OH–a little boy she gave up for adoption to a relative. I found out about Pete about twenty years ago and have tried searching for him periodically through the years, but didn’t have any information other than the name Pete Teets. Pretty sure I finally found him, unfortunately too late.
I wanted to express my sympathy to you and your family. I always looked forward to Rick coming into Worth Repeating with his furniture items for us. He did such a great job of refinishing. He taught me a great deal about glass and antiques. He became much more than a consignor, he was a true freind. After I stopped working in the store, I missed our conversations and the occasional trip to check out treasures. Take care.

Ruthie and Jerry and families, so sorry to hear of your lost. Susie Lippencot told me, I am sorry I didn’t know sooner. Rick and I were such good friends through our years in school. He was one of my best friends. I wish we had kept in touch. The last I think I saw him was at your mother’s house, Ruthie when I delivered her meals. So glad that you and Rick had 39 years together!! What a blessing!! I know you will miss him so much.
