Pam and family. So sorry to hear this sad news. Remember Rick and family living on Bergamot and TCI. Would run into him over the years around Rexdale. My deepest condolences to you and your family.

My fondest memories with Rick were when our family visited the Boast in Midland. We also had holidays on occasions in Midland and as a Kid I enjoyed the times with Rick and Ernie most of all. Going to the wrestling matches down the bottom of Mildred Avenue or down to the park and Little Lake for french fries was always a treat. Its strange the little kindnesses that we remember and stay in our memories forever. I'll miss a great cousin.
