  1. Our deepest condolences to Helen and family. God has a special place for Romeo in heaven I’m sure. God bless from Jeanne and Ron Gould 🙏❤️

  2. Helen, my condolences to you and the rest of your family. On a visit with Pat and John Vinovich (my brother) in their place beside you in Shediac, I remember the good times, the good food and the pies. I remember Romey taking us on a tour of Fundy and we hit the pie shop along the way. I remember the tales of the lawn cutting and the tractor maintenance. Good times, long ago but still in my heart! warm spirit ….

  3. Helene,
    We remember our visits with you and Romero in Dieppe and at your cottage when we first started dating, 50 plus years ago.
    Romero always had fun topics to discuss and enjoyed being part of our relationship as did you. He was a very special person to many people and will be missed. You both are in our prayers.

  4. Romeo was a great guy and he married a wonderful woman. He will be missed. Having worked 41 years at the railroad is no small feat, and he kept his sense of humor throughout.
    Sympathies to you Helen and the rest of the family

  5. Holly and the Richard Family – pleaase acccept my sincere sympathy at this sad time. I have wonderful memories of the family and my dear friend Marilyn and her Mother Helen, who was more of a Mother to me than my own. Those were good times and will always be precious memories. Thoughts and prayers being sent your way……..

  6. Our deepest sympathy to you, Helen, and to all of your and Romeo’s families. We so enjoyed Romey’s sense of humor and the many stories he shared with us. We are so grateful to have visited with him briefly this summer. Despite his infirmities, he still kept that sense of humor. Sending love and prayers your way.

  7. Sincere condolences to you Helen and the Richard family.
    May he rest in peace,

  8. Sincere condolences to Helen and the Richard family.

  9. Helen I am saddened to read of Romey’s passing. He was such an important part of my childhood in Cassie Cape! He taught me so many things…fishing off the wharf, shucking his quohaugs, steaming clams, cleaning the boat and the list goes on. Love you Heather

  10. Our condolences go out to Helen, Holly and all of Romeys’ family. So very grateful to have such wonderful neighbors. Always looked forward to our afternoon talks on the side of garage at the Cape.
    Rest In Peace Romey.
    Hugs and prayers.
    Colleen and Tristan

  11. Dear Helen,
    I just recently learned of Uncle Romeo’s passing & wish to extend my condolences. I was shocked to hear the news,but then we’ve been out of touch for some time. I used to see Romey once in awhile when we came in from the cottage to shop in Dieppe. I always counted on Glen & Angie to keep us up on the family news, but they had been unaware as well. Had we known of the situation I would have visited him in the hospital.
    I am sorry for your loss, Helen, After 64 years of marriage, it must be very deeply felt. I pray that you may take comfort from family & friends.
    Janis Hunter Neilson
