Condolences & Memories (3 entries)
My deepest sympathies and warm thoughts go out to you during this time of sorrow. My memories of Leo are from my youth at family gatherings and visits. May you find lasting comfort in your memories of Leo. - Posted by: Margo Hebert (Cousin) on: Sep 08, 2021
Heartfelt condolences in this difficult time. I have happy memories of when Auntie Cathy would come to visit with Janine and Leo. We were just kids enjoying kid stuff together. It wasn't always easy to visit in those days and not everyone had access to a car so they came by bus. And of course there were no cell phones or tablets so we had to occupy our time doing kid stuff like playing outside! I was just six months older than Leo and our families hung around together quite a bit in the early days. I did capture a photo during a later visit, the photo is dated 1970, at the prime of the teenage years. I just found the photo and send a happy wish of peace and comfort to you. - Posted by: Paulette Theberge (Cousin) on: Sep 07, 2021
My condolences to Leo’s family. I had not seen Leo since our grandfather’s family. I always wondered how he was doing and did not know to get a hold of him. I hope that his fond memories carry you through this difficult time.. - Posted by: Guy Jeanson (Cousin) on: Sep 04, 2021
