    Hilary, our hearts go out to you, Veronica and the family. We wanted so much to come down, but it just was not possible.

    We have so many fond memories of Richard, and appreciated his quiet manner and the little giggle that would slip out when something hit his funny bone. Please continue to send your yearly update letter, we always looked forward to it. If you are ever up near Edmonton, please stop by.
    Hugs Wendy and Merv Brown

    Dear Hilary and family,

    I am truly saddened by the news of the passing of Richard. I worked with him from the late seventies to the early nineties at United News he was a excellent Sales Rep and a very good and dedicated Sales Supervisor. More important than that he was a good person. I learned a ton from him. Richard made me a better sales Rep and person and for that I will always be grateful. His work ethic and loyalty to United News was a reflection of his character. My thoughts and prayer will be with you,I am truly sorry for your loss.
