    You were always the best brother I could have ever had and I will miss you so much. Being called “sissy” by you always brought a smile for me. We will all miss you terribly but you are now released from all your pain and I know that dad and Marty were there when you crossed over and the three of you will be together waiting for the day when the rest of us will meet up again. You will be in my thoughts and heart forever. You were taken from us way too soon. Love you – “sissy”

  22. Joanne says:

    The cool uncle who always mosied in with a smile! Showed up for every family gathering and chilled and enjoyed the company. Never a bad word to say.
    I can honestly say in my 45 yrs, I have never seen you in anything but a short sleeved dress shirt and jeans/jean shorts! That was you, even taking my boys to the Sportsmen Club fishing.. Makes my heart smile you were true to who you were and had a beautiful relationship with Michelle and Ernie- one that I envy! I thank you for the great memories as a wonderful uncle and for being you!!! I will miss you as it leaves a great void in our family. See you when it’s my time. Xo

  23. Michelle Michaud says:

    Dad…. you will be missed more than words can say. We are heart broken, but know that you would want us to stay strong. You fought hard to try and stay with us. You where definitly taken from us too soon. I can only hope to see you again someday when my turn comes to cross over. I love you Dad
