Condolences & Memories (1 entries)

  • My family and I send our heart felt condolences on the sad loss to the family of Bryan C. Courchene. Although our families did not see our relatives very often You were in our thoughts; distance (work related) kept our families apart. It is so very sad that we are separated due to work or education taking many away but we still know who we are through our deceased elders. I often think of the elder friends that used to come to our house on occasion to play cards with my Dad. Remember all the good times your family spent with grand parents (Courchenes and Fontaines) as well as numerous cousins. May you find comfort with family and friends. With deepest sympathy, Evelyn Laforte and family. - Posted by: Evelyn Laforte, Lac dubonnet, Mb (Cousin) on: Dec 15, 2019
