Condolence from Ann and Yvon Robichaud on August 9th, 2010 4:36 am

Hello, Karen and family,

Our deepest sympathies to you all. Yvon and I are so glad that we went to visit Joe in December 2009. It was Boxing Day. (Karen, I am not sure if you knew that.) He did recognize Yvon after a bit of reminiscing. We stayed for about a half hour.

We are planning to attend the funeral on Wednesday. See you then. Please let me know if there is anything we can do or bring.

Thinking of you all,
Yvon and Ann

So sorry to read about the loss of your Dad in today’s paper. He’s had a remarkable life – think of changes he has seen in the past 95 years. I know you valued the time he spent in the U.S. – you were very blessed to have had him for so long.

My deepest sympathy goes to you, Robie, Melanie (& Nicholas) and your family. I hope the memories you have of your Dad will help to comfort you all in the days to come.
