  19. I had a chance to work with Jean Maurice on several occasions. His approach was social first and professional second. A great fella to talk to and work with. He was a wealth of knowledge and was keen to share that knowledge. I remember talking to him about his retirement plans and how excited he was and all the projects he had was going to do, old cars, wood working, his shop. I’m so very sorry to hear of his passing. To his family please accept my deepest condolences.

  34. Hi there,
    I’ve never been very good at reading out loud or speaking in front of a crowd, but Dad always said the only thing in your life you have control over is your attitude. So, I’m going into this with the attitude that I’ve got this and that we’ll make it through this eulogy together.
    Dad was never one to like leaving things to the last minute, but I think for his eulogy, he’d have made an exception. Writing this wasn’t easy because how can we express in a short amount of time all the amazing qualities he had and the great memories we shared? The simple answer is we can’t.
    Dad, it didn’t matter how you knew someone or even if you knew them at all, you were always kind and friendly. Always willing to help in any way you could.
    Out of everyone who’s path you crossed though, I think Mame, Pierre, Philippe and I were the most blessed. Anyone who knew you, knew how much you loved mom, and how much she loved you too. The three of us, however, were blessed enough to not only know that love, but to be a product of it. We got to witness your love for all of us every day.
    Be it in your enthusiasm about our experiences, projects, interests, or talents, or the sarcasm and silly gestures you bestowed onto us, in the time you would spend with us or even in the honesty and opinions you shared (that we sometimes didn’t want to hear) we always knew it was out of love and care. And when we came to you with a broken toy or a broken heart, you would always figure out how to fix it.
    I don’t know how many of you know this, but on their 25th wedding anniversary, Dad ordered a bouquet of 25 red roses for Mame. She had to go get a bucket from the hardware store to put them all in and she wrapped a bow around it to try to make it look pretty. It was a typical, hilarious and ridiculous gesture from dad. When he got home from work, he asked how she liked the flowers and she told him they were really nice, but she already knew how much he loved her. Dad just smiled at her like he always did and said “I know dear. But I wanted everyone else to know it too”.
    In a similar way, we’re all here today for the same reason, we all knew how much you loved us dad, and you knew how much we love you. But we wanted to make sure everyone else knew it too.
    Everyone here today understands what it meant to know you because knowing you dad, was knowing love.
    So, after all that, how do you put into words how important such a great man was to everyone around him? How do you honor a real superhero’s life with just a few words?
    I suppose you say the words he taught you to say when someone helped you grab something that was out of reach or handed you a piece of candy. A phrase you’ve heard said to him many times over. You say it with the weight of the world behind it, with every fibre of your being. You say it for everything he’s done and for every time he showed up, you say thank you.
    Love you Dad.

  35. Mes sympathies les plus sincères pour le décès de ton conjoint Joanne. Bon courage, tu es bien entouré par une famille exceptionnelle. ❤️

  36. Nos sincères condoléances à toi Joanne, ta famille et tout ceux qui ont été touché par sa présence. Toujours un sourire à partager et une gentillesse inoubliable!
    Amour, Alfred et Angela xo
