Ann, Joe and Family,
It is with profound sadness that we have learned of Rick’s passing.
Rick was a friend to all.
We have fond memories of the various camping and road trips that we had with Rick over the years, along with all the other activities we were involved in with Rick.
I wish there was something we could say or do that would ease your grief.
Rick was too young to leave this world and we will miss him.
I was very sorry to hear of Ricks Passing he will be missed by family and friends, Ted and family
Rick’s bright and optimistic attitude, warm personality, and fantastic, if not pleasantly twisted sense of humour will stay with me and hopefully others that know him, especially his closest friends and family, who I’m sure will miss him a lot. Peace and hugs.
Was very sad to hear about Rick. My heart goes out to all of you. Rick will always be remembered as a part of our life on 12st c . He always gave a wave and a smile
Thoughts are with you ……hugs
Didn’t have a mean bone in his body. Enjoyed sitting with Rick at many a hockey game. A true testament to his mom dad and family. He is sorely missed by all the Mehrer family.
