Dear Matante Anna Paul Norm Roger Bobby and the whole family. We send you all our love and strength during this difficult time. I have very fond memories of spending countless holidays and Sundays at your house. Mon Oncle was always so nice and willing to share candy with all us kids. He would tell us to stay out of the garden but not get mad if we didn't. Always had so much fun when we all went to Canada as a family. Stay strong and know that he is resting now and watching over all of you. We will see him again one day.
All our love Annette Rich Nick Lindsey and Jeanneva
