The girl with the most infectious smile and personality that left a lasting impression on everyone she met. 

Born a free spirt she would never allowed any challenge of her illness to hold her back. Rici felt at home in the Wyoming Mountains with a love of the outdoors that was contagious. She was happy to share the beauty of the mountains with anyone. She enjoyed motorcycle riding, hunting, wake boarding, hiking, camping, rock climbing and fishing. 

She had a love of music all types and she shared it with everyone she loved. Yet her biggest love was her beloved dog Charlie.
