  3. Dear Rose:
    I was saddened to see Rick’s obituary in today’s Edm Journal. I was unaware that he had been ill – but happy to read that he died peacefully at his home.
    I have many happy memories of ‘Rico’ who I met through my cousin Pam.
    It sure doesn’t seem fair that a parent outlives her child, Rose, but if anyone can handle such tragedy, it is you! I hope it helps to know that others are thinking fondly of you, Colleen and your entire family at this sad time. Penny Craig (Fort Macleod, AB)

    Rose and Colleen
    I am so sorry to hear about Rick. Rick was always a fun loving character and will be missed by all who knew him. As Rose knows I grew up with Rick only living a few miles away. Most of my memories are from the earlier years.Rose, Rick loved you very much. In the last several years I had an opportunity to see Rick at Leah McDonald’s 50th Birthday party in Regina and then again at Margaret Hamilton’s celebration of her life.
    Colleen I know I have met you in the past but did not know you. Time always heals and remember all of the special and good times you had with Rick.
    Rose please pass on my condolences to all of your children as I know their hearts are very heavy as well. Jocelyn

    My heartfelt cololences to the Boudy family and to all his friends. I am very saddened to learn of his passing. I worked with Richard for a few years in Norman Wells. He was so much fun and always had a way of making the most of any of the situations we were involved with. Always sharing a funny story with us guys in camp and making a hard day at work seem like a fun adventure. His sunny disposition was contagious. Very respectfully, James

    Colleen,Rose and family,
    I am deeply saddened by Rick’s passing. As he was my twin and one of my best friends in high school I will always remember him fondly. His joy of living and no holds barred attitude made him so special to so many people. I am truly glad that he was able to come to my 50th birthday celebration (and his). Tears and time will help ease the pain. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
