I’ve known Ric Olson for a number of years and consider him a friend, colleague, mentor and one of the finest human beings I know.  His integrity, professionalism, talent, executive skills, and rare wisdom are unmatched.  Oh and did I mention his caring and extraordinary compassion for our elderly.  If you are looking for the total package in a human being, and I know many that know him would agree, Ric is the real deal.  I’m very blessed to call him a friend and have him in my life.
