It has been one year since our good friend and fellow blogger Rick Nadeau passed. Rick died November 20th, 2008, after fighting cancer gallantly for two years. He had been writing for this blog since we started, and wrote for a newsmagazine/ online journal in Sacramento, where he lived with his spouse, Diana Tumminia.
Rick used to live in OB and San Diego, and while here gave those who were close to him, a view of a rare human being. He was a wonderful writer and with his loss, there’s a gigantic hole of verse that has not and cannot be filled.
Here’s some of Rick’s most recent writings:
‘Never Having To Apologize’: An Imperial Mentality Rick’s last writing.
Several people, including Diana and Gregg Robinson wrote about Rick one year ago. See their post here.
