Happy Birthday Rick. You inspire me to reach out to others so they don't go through what you did. I hope to be able to support mindcheck.ca in any way I can. Psychological disorders are serious and there is help for all.

As I posted in the other forum under the mindcheck.ca topic, I dedicate this video to you in the hopes to make a difference.

RIP

and with all due respect... i really find this kind of morbid - i mean, do i really need to point out that he doesnt celebrate his birthday anymore? i loved rypper, but do we really need happy birthday posts for people who have passed away? demitra? bourdon? sorry to burst your bubble, but i find this thread borderline disrespectful - let him rest in peace

I see what you mean Alberts... But I don't think the OP was disrespecting rypien, if anything it just reminds us the kinds of struggles that all sorts of people face in their lives.

R.I.P. Rypper. I loved watching you fight. I still remember your goal vs the Rangers. Amazing.

i think sometimes its ok to take a day to remember how great he was and to think about what he went through. and what better day than his birthday. i see your point but please bring your negative comments to another topic

IMO it's never a bad thing to take a moment and remember someone who lost his or her life

Happy birthday Rick. Hope that you're happy and at peace now. Continued good wishes to his family.

In certain cultures, honouring those that have passed away on their birthdays is a sign of respect. We're not blowing out birthday candles, we're just taking a moment to remember him..

RIP Rypper

I think he'd like it better if you know someone who's struggling with depression to do what you can to get them help.

Start with: http://www.mindcheck.ca/

I miss his work ethic and his goals, and his courage to stand up to anyone. There was more to him than just fighting.

happy birthday Rypien, after Linden, you are my favorite canuck. I believe i was one of the first people to order your jersey from the canuck store, at that time they didnt even know who you were in the store.

its kinda strange, maybe wierd how things work out.

On wed the 16th my wife gave birth to our first son, Riley Robert. He was a couple weeks early at 37 weeks.

It wasnt until after she had had him and we named him that we found out he was born on rypiens birthday, at 37 weeks, and same initials as him.
