Dear Germaine and Family.
From our family to yours. We would like to extend our condolences to you all.
We hardly have the words to express how much he will be missed in our day to day life and by our entire family, including our dog "Vinny" whom benefited by having Marcel's companionship everyday.
Much love from Chris and Barb Hotchkiss
