    Wishing my deepest condolences to Denise, Pauline (Ernie), Yves (Natasha), and the rest of Mr. Cardinal’s relatives… I’ll never forget my first job which Richard and Denise gave me while camping up at Cedar Haven camp grounds, I had the pleasure of bagging groceries and then taking them out to all the customers vehicles with the help of my best friend Sly… and Yves was our awesome “boss” to keep us in line! wow what I would do to go back, rest in paradise Mr.Cardinal you will be missed my many!

    My sympathies to DENISE and Pauline also his family. I will miss Richard but knowing that he is no longer suffering and that his little dog Charlie is in his truck driving around the market. Miss you Richard you will be missed.
