  • While I have not seen Rheal since high school, I am very sad to hear of his passing. My thoughts and prayers are with Bonnie and his family. Blessings of Jesus Christ be upon you. Hugs - Posted by: Alexandra Beasse (attended high school with Rheal) on: Jan 18, 2014

  • Today i lost a true friend. Rheal was like a brother to me, certain people come into your life but not like this man. He would give you his last meal, that's the kind of human being he was. Rheal came by my job site one day to visit with me and crack a few jokes as he always did. As we said goodbye for now, he reached out with open arms and gave me a big hug, i will never forget that moment. To Rheal's Mother and Father, you raised a son that had respect for other people. To Rheal's wife and kids, this man was a kind and gentle man with a big heart. To the Delaurier family and friends, Rheal left a big impact on me in my life, i won't meet another person like him again in my life.Thank you. - Posted by: Bill B.Iwasiuk (Friend) on: Jan 16, 2014

  • My deepest sympathy to all the family at this very difficult time. May the memories you hold dear be your strength throughout the days to follow. - Posted by: Carole Gobeil (neighbour of sister & brother-in-law) on: Jan 15, 2014
