Dear Marg, Pete and family. Our thoughts and love are with you all at this sad time. Dick was a wonderful neighbor (in the Swanno days) and much loved friend throughout the years. He will always be remembered for his quick wit and dry sense of humor along with his love for his family. Always busy with a paint brush, fishing rod or fixing/building something - a very clever man. Please know that we are with you on Friday and will be honored to take part in Dick's web service. Nita, Peter, Greg, Samantha and families. --- What we have once enjoyed we can never lose; All that we love deeply, becomes a part of us.

Words are not enough to express how sorry we were to hear of your loss. May the precious memories we hold in our hearts remain forever. Mr Smith (Dick) was a father figure to me, and with Richard I enjoyed many hours doing manly things, wood cutting, fishing, gold panning and much more. As a boy I lost my father at an early age. Dick taught me many things about life only a father could. Thank you Dick. R.I.P.

Dearest Aunty Margaret, Sending you lots of love at this difficult time. We have lots of lovely memories of Uncle Ritchie - most of them involving a cheeky joke and a laugh. Mum has always spoken of you both fondly and has told me many stories of when you would look after her when she was a little girl and how kind you both were to her. Lots of love to you, Melissa, Marcin, Lucy and Hannah

Dear Marg, Peter and families. Our love and prayers are with you all at this sad time in losing your beloved husband, father and poppy. We have many happy memories of times gone by in the days of Swanno with Dick's quick wit and jovial jokes with Russ. Dick will be remembered with thoughts of always being busy. He either had a paint brush in his hand or a fishing rod. He was always busy fixing or building something - a very clever man. His love for his family was always evident as he provided them a beautiful home and love to all. We feel honoured in joining the web service for Dick and please know that we are there with you today and always. In better times we shall raise a glass and meet up in person. Your forever friends Nita, Peter, Greg and Samantha Sheridan xxx

What a wonderful service in tribute to a good man. We were with you, albeit via live stream. The memories and photos of Uncle Richie were so fitting for the Uncle Richie that both Chris and I will always remember. Our thoughts are with you.
