Condolences & Memories (1 entries)
Rest in peace Uncle Richard. I only had met you a few times with mom, Elizabeth Lewis (Alfred). We had a great time at the mall you took us to. We visited with Anna Lisa and enjoyed newborn puppies in the yard. It was a beautiful day. You came to Edmonton once I remember and I really think you looked like my brother Shane. Same walk, talk, like twins. I am sure your family will miss you dearly. My sincere condolences to all. Tracey Courtepatte (Lewis) - Posted by: Tracey Courtepatte (Niece) on: Apr 11, 2021
