    To Dick’s family
    Dick was a neighbour of mine on Leslie Cr. It always made my day getting a wave from him, either driving or walking by. I got to visit with him 2 days before he left the hospital and we had a great visit. I’m glad I got to see him that day. My heartfelt condolences, may he rest in peace. He will be fondly remembered.

    Hi Clayton,
    Please accept my condolences for the loss of your Father, Dick.
    I have fond memories of him building your Grandparent’s home on Glanford Ave next door to my Parents. He was always ready and willing to lend a helping hand to Dad and l whenever we needed it.
    A great guy.
