  2. My deepest sympathy Judy,Lana,Shelly and family. My heart is broken for all of you and my heart is also broken because of my loss of a man whom I cared about and whom I considered to be one of the best men in the neighbourhood. I met Rick when I was 19 yrs old and I’m 63 now so I’ve known him for many years. Many Saturday nights were shared before all of us had babies.. at Marlene and Roger’s and at my Mom and Dad’s in Vancouver. If money was to be made from laughing we would all be gazillionaires…so many laughs…so much fun..In all my 45 yrs of going to visit Mar & Rog..YOUR DAD ALWAYS GAVE ME A WAVE, A SMILE, AND A HELLO…always working on the house..unless he was loading golf clubs into his car..Rick will be so missed..but with us always in our hearts and in our memories. God Bless….Linda

  3. My love & prayers go out to ALL the family.

    May God help you to get through this time.

    Love, Bonnie

    Richard was my brother but he was many other things. He was an Electric Tech and at home, a plumber, carpenter and mechanic. He was also a musician, golfer, fisherman and horseman. I talked to him virtually every week by phone. I will miss him, Richard was Richard my brother and friend. May God bless and comfort you all.

    Uncle Rick and Auntie Judy were both very special people in my young life. They took me to the farm is Sask before my parents drove out. I have the Christmas family picture on my fridge 2011 picture. I had Uncle Rick to lean on when my Mom (his sister) when she was in Hospital.
    I gathered strength from his presence. God bless the Maki is together again!
