MY SON, I am Missing you so much: I would like to thank my Grandson Don & James Amero for sharing their thoughts of their father Richard James Amero (Rickey) of Winnipeg who passed away on the 6th of March, 2016. He would have been 58 on the 1st of July so young & a very good son, it sure left a big hole in my heart that will never be filled again. You can lose any of your family but when you lose a child there’s nothing worst than that. He was so good to his family, the four boys & everyone he met, he sure will be missed by all. Once again Don thank you so very much for taking care of everything out here having a mass for him & for all the write-ups you did. They are just wonderful, you sure did a very good job. The ones you sent me, I gave one to all the family. I can’t thank you enough for all you have done, he sure was proud of all you boys & kids. He had 9 grand kids, all sweet too. I gave them all money when they were home. Don, Ricky’s son came & brought his ashes, that’s what Rickey said he wanted. There was over 100 people in church at Ricky’s Funeral mass in Winnipeg. Rickey always used to tell me & Arnold if he was away & died, he wanted to be taken home to Plympton Holy Cross. He used to be an alter boy at our church. He loved to play & sing, he taught all his boys to sing & play. Don now for a few years is making a living doing just that, I am so proud of him, as I am of all my grandsons & my grand kids. Ricky sure worked hard all his life but like me he loved to work & make all kinds of things. I thank my sisters for being here with me & bringing food, I sure am grateful to you all. Thank you for all the cards & phone calls from my sisters Patsy of Upper Musquodoboit, Eunice & Brenda from BC. So many cards, thanks again Mary E for coming to see me - Thanks. Hope I didn’t forget anyone I just can’t think & it’s hard to cry & write sometime, these days it’s all I can do. So you all take good care, I love you all forever & a Day, God Bless you all X0X0 My other 2 grandsons Darick & James came home with Don also. But Richie could not come, he just misses his father so very much, he was always with his father. I would have loved to see him also. I gave them all keepsakes & each one money to help on their trips. They came by plane to Halifax & got a car for a week, so it cost a lot for them to come. Not likely that I will see them again whatever the Good Lord has to say about that. I thank my 2 sisters Linda & Judy the first 2 nights after getting the sad news, Judy stayed on Sun. night & Linda on Mon. night but my little place was full for a few days - so sad. A very special thanks to Don Blinn & Ray, Don did the reading at the grave side & grandson Don did the ashes & Don sand 2 songs that Ricky loved. Dave said a few words, thanks Dave. After I asked everyone of our family & close friends to come at Melanson Manor for a get together everyone brought food even beef rappie pie. Thanks Everyone. There was so much food, Mary brought strawberry short cake S.O. Sisters Linda & Judy, Nora & Janet - they all brought so much food. A very special thank you to my uncle Donnie & wife Thelma from back of Yarmouth. They also brought food. There must have been 30 of us or so. Big family of us them Jacks, ha, ha everything was so very nice & I just can’t thank my grandsons enough, I pray they have a long & happy life. I pray God is very kind to them all & all my great-grandchildren. All the family said they have never seen brothers so kind & good to each other, that’s the way Ricky brought them up, same as I did him. Thanks to my 3 nieces from Auburn for the cards, Darlene & Beat & Bell. Thanks girls. Thanks to Paul & Karen for all the good lemon squares & everything else, lots of good food, all good cooks for sure. Thanks again Uncle Donnie can sure play & everyone also. Thank you all so much again. A very special thanks to my sister Janet & husband Frank of Hilton, ask my 3 grandsons & myself back to their home for the best ham supper ever. She sure does a good meal. There was I think 17 of us there. The boys sure enjoyed that. They had everything to eat, seafood & rappie pie. They loved everything, can’t wait to come back here again. Thanks Janet & Frank. They got the seafood at the Little Restaurant downtown, loved it. Now I pray they all get back home safe. I love you so much.
