Condolences & Memories (5 entries)

  • My condolences to you Shirley & Family. May your memories bring you comfort in the days ahead & the love of family & friends give your comfort. Janet - Posted by: Janet Kuhlman (Friend) on: Mar 10, 2020

  • It is always a sad time when we loose a Loved One. I have many memories, after all we are brothers. We worked together, we played together, we played cards a couple of evenings a week (brothers, cousin, nephew). We GRENIER’s are witty people, there was always something to say to make other people laugh. “THOSE WERE THE DAYS”. I will never forget the time we spent together on Friday afternoons, laughing at our memories and giving each other support regarding our health conditions. I will always keep you in my heart DEAR BROTHER. Take care of me from your special place. Our whole family will miss you forever. - Posted by: Roger Grenier (Brother) on: Feb 19, 2020

  • It is so sad but true that as we grow older we grow apart. The everyday responsibilities of raising families and work make it difficult. What we are blessed with are the memories. I will always remember the weekly pool games that were held when I was just a young boy. All the Grenier men would compete for that so important Pepsi. I was taught many new words during that competition and would not trade it for anything. Uncle Oliver was the ultimate comedian and always had everyone bent over with laughter by the end of the night. Uncle Oliver had many challenges in life but he never lost his sense of humour. He will be missed but never forgotten. - Posted by: Ray Grenier (nephew) on: Feb 01, 2020
