  • I was so happy to be able to visit with Rick and see all of his achievements. His home and garage were beautiful! He sent me pictures of entire yard in the fall - because I wanted to see the colors. I spoke with him often on the phone and enjoyed our conservations, just talking about our family. I will miss him dearly - my heart breaks for my Aunt Suzanne and my cousins Jim and Mitch! - Posted by: Valerie MacAlister (Klassen) (Cousin) on: Jan 02, 2019
