Sometimes you meet people through the web and expectation as to their character is in question. And sometimes you can tell they are of a quality of heart without even a face to face. I had the incredible pleasure to have met Rick (MrNormsTA) on Moparts and face to face and instantly knew he was a special man. His passion for cars was only surpassed by his passion for being a quality human being. He welcomed friendship with all who he touched and will be missed by many. RIP Rick Wescott. I will win my next race for you and your love for the automobile. God speed my friend.

I didn't want to say anything until I had more information as when it was appropriate - I found last night the Rick was no longer with us. I can't tell you in words the loss that I've felt since. I've had no real sleep and I'm trying not to keep from tearing up. Its unreal then in a flash its real then its unreal and it all starts again.

Rick was a mopar guy through and through and would give the shirt off his back. He helped me with several cars and the last one was a Mach 1 I got a year ago. (he had one before he got into mopars). I needed cash to secure it and only could get out a max 9k from the bank my one and only shot was Rick. I told him that I needed another 9k to make this deal and had only 2 hrs to give the seller an answer. What did Rick say? Sure and when can we get pick up the car? He was my go to person.

I miss him already and loved him always,

People talk about their dogs/cats they have lost. I've lost a great friend that I can never get back. I'm so bereaved and bereft.

This world is a lesser place without him.
