Not sure what to say?

What wonderful memories we have of Dick and Maggie, our next door neighbors, as our children were growing up. We send our sincere sympathy to the Drake Family in the loss of Dick.

I worked for Dr. and Maggie Drake at Drake-Willock and found them both to be wonderful people. It is always a sad occasion to lose a loved and my heartfelt sympathy to Maggie and the family.

Dr. Drake and his wife Maggie were great neighbors to all of us

up here in Welches. Their temperament was so gladly received

when the Rippling River Community was in a state of unrest due

to the previous owner of The Mountain Resort. We will greatly

miss the short conversations we had with both Dick and Maggie.

May the Lord Bless Maggie and the Drake Family !!!

Sincerely: Marietta & Michael Donohue

I worked for Dr. Drake, Dr. Martinso & Dr. Stephenson in the late 1960's.Dr. Drake was such a kind, patient man. He listened to his patients, something some mem and women in his profession were too busy to do. A very good man.
In recent years my brother was on kidney dialysis which would not have been there for him if not for Dr. Drake.


My condolences to the Drake family. Losing someone in death is so painful. But we look forward to a time when we can see the loved ones we have lost again. Here is a comforting thought found at 1 Thessalonians 4:13,14.

Dr Drake was a patient nephrologist he made time for the nurses and patients. His kindness was the thing I remembered about him. I worked with him at Good Samaritan Hospital . his contributions to the Drake Willock machine, eventually Althin, helped many patients. his legacy continues for many.

Maggie, my deepest sympathies to you and your family, words can not express how much I enjoyed our professional relationship over the last 40years. Dick's kindness and understanding will not be forgotten. Best to all, Bob Mesher
