    Emily – maybe you should ‘google’ who Rick Rypien is rather than commenting on a story for his memorial.  *shakes head*

    For the record, Rypien was a former Vancouver Canuck NHL player who’d recently been picked up by the Winnipeg Jets.

    I wish the wind wasn’t as strong as it was. The candles would’ve stayed lit. Anyone who goes there, please bring a long-nosed lighter :P
