My Uncle Dick was my favourite uncle: he was always kind, attentive and lots of fun whenever I saw him as a young girl. He never changed. He always had a sense of humour and was very generous with whatever it was he had caught fishing or hunting. I remember when I was quite small, he and my grandfather had skinned some rabbits Uncle Dick had caught. Since I was a thumb- sucker at the time, Uncle Dick removed their tails and gave one to me. I thought this was wonderful. He adored his family and was always a larger-than-life person to me. My condolences and love to Reid and Gary and their families. Pam Fellows
