Richard's Garden
and Memorial Service

With the current limitations on travel and public gatherings due to COVID-19 we have decided to postpone Richard's Memorial Service until June 2021.


Richard loved Halloween. This year family and friends gathered in two seperate events to honour and remember Richard. In NB, his family re-created Richard's "burning man" while in Toronto, friends lit candles at Fred Hamilton Park. A full moon watched down on both.
