Condolence: I too have many fond memories of visiting Uncle Greg and Auntie Lucille as a child. In addition to those recounted by my sister Lisa, I remember pens of rabbits, riding through the bush on Uncle Greg's all-terrain vehicle and, most vividly, seeing a gutted moose strung up to the ceiling of Uncle Greg's garage. Although the language of our visits was mostly French, Uncle Greg always made sure to include his anglophone nieces and nephew with kind words and sincere questions.
My deepest sympathy is extended to Auntie Lucille, Micheline, Pauline, Marcel and the entire Desormiers family.
Repos éternel, accorde-lui, Seigneur
et laissez la lumière perpétuelle briller sur lui.
Condolence: Some of my most vivid early childhood memories are of sitting with Uncle Greg on his skidoo and racing over the snow, of our after-dinner visits to Sturgeon Falls, of his huge and exciting garages and even, once, of a dresser drawer full of kittens. Although it has been many years since my last visit, I am so grateful for these - and many other - vignettes that play over in my mind with more frequency, likely, than he ever would have imagined. I'm thinking with fondness of all of the Desormiers family, wishing you joy with his life remembered, solace as you mourn his absence, and peace in days to come.
