    Dear friends,

    I am so saddened by Dick’s passing and will not only miss seeing him but hearing his laughter and seeing that great smile!
    I am grateful to have spent time down in front by the St.Lawrence River listening to Dick tell me about earlier years.
    He was a genuine, down to earth, respectful. gentle and kind human being.
    I feel fortunate to have known him.
    I have you all in my daily thoughts.

    Donna and Family, we are very sorry to hear about Richard’s passing. Since I started working at Holy Rosary in 1993 he was always willing to help me out; from picking up the grounds or helping to set up for the festivals. He was a great guy and will be missed. Thought and prayers to you and the family.

    Jim and Bonnie
