Dear Anita,
So saddened by the news. I will always remember him as a wonderful, good man, who sure was a fighter.
May his soul Rest In Peace. May you and your family live on with all good memories.

Dick was a wonderful friend and one of the greatest fishing buddies I ever had. We had so many great times together with our other friends fishing in Quebec, and I totally loved his sense of humor. His laugh was truly something to behold. My heart goes out to Anita and family and know for sure, his wonderful sensibility will be with me and others forever.
