Peter, Rebecca and family, I am so sorry for your loss. I enjoyed seeing Jules when he came for his appointments. He always had a hug for me. I lived next door to his sister Aline for several years and thought highly of them both. Such kind people. You both took great care of him. I will miss his bubbly personality, sincerely Jane Allard

To the family and loved ones of Jules -- May the shared memories you have of him bring you solace during this difficult time. I remember Jules as a warm and friendly man with a great sense of humor and always willing to be of help if called upon. We shared a love of animals so some years back he took me to introduce me to his horse, calling her over, assuring me she was friendly. Both of us were somewhat surprised when she displayed her displeasure at meeting this "stranger" who had interrupted her quiet afternoon in the field as she bolted away from his grasp on the rein. No harm, no foul, Jules. His smile will be missed. God bless.

I met Jules when we both worked at RHI many years ago. After that it was always a pleasure running in to him whether just out and about or while he was manning the bouncy house at the St.Denis fair. Truly a warm and caring man with the best smile. My condolences to your family.
