Sorry to hear Karen about Your brother!
Sharon and I would like to express our sincere condolences to all of Rick’s family. May God comfort you now and in the days ahead.🙏
So sorry to hear this, thinking of you Karen and families.
Rick was a year younger than me. Rick was in the same grade as my sister Gail, when we went to school in Mont Nebo, grade one to six. Rick was always kind and soft spoken in grade school. We all continued on to Shellbrook high school for grade 7 to 12. I did share the same group of friends, but I do know Ricks sister Karen. I want to extend my deepest sympathy to Elaine, Karen, Morley and all of Your families on the passing of such a special person to you. Love Kathy Buckingham (Skavlebo)
My message should say that I did not share the same group of friends
My condolences to Karen and all of Rick’s family. He was always a kind and wonderful man.
So sad to hear of Ricks passing. Condolences to you all from Jeff and Wanda Gatzke
So sorry to hear of your loss Karen. Thinking of you and your family.
It is with great saddness to hear of Rick’s passing. I have many fond memories of this kind man. “Although distance and life’s travels have kept us apart for most of our adult years, you have often been in my thoughts. You will be forever missed and never forgotten.”

My sincere and deep condolences to Elaine, to Cole, Kendall and Shelby, and to Terry and Karen on Rick’s untimely passing. Its been many years since I was in the Mont Nebo/Shell Lake/Shellbrook area which was when I met Rick at his parent’s house. But I remember Rick clearly and I feel like all of you as well as Vivian, Armella, Bill and Brenda are my extended family. [Rick’s mom Francis and my mom Lorna (nee McNeilly) were 1st cousins]. My love to all of you. John van Mossel, Ottawa
