To the entire MacDonald family, Please accept out prayers and condolences on Rick's passing. I have wonderful memories of him at swim meets and various swim activities. He loved to watch his kids compete in the pool. He was a wonderful lunch companion during the Saturday lunches after home meets. He was always willing to man a stop watch and time during meets. Rick was always friendly and cheery, even when he didn't feel well.
Unfortunately, we will not be in town for Mass next week. We will be there in spirit and thought.
