Deepest heatfelt sympathy to the entire family.
My Grandad was Andre's Dad's brother, Joseph Lariviere. I remember all the visits between them when I was a child. Andre & Therese are my Mom's cousins (Doris, Demerise Turcotte nee Lariviere - deceased 2007). I share in your grief & sorrow at this sad time. Bea Meaney,

My grandfather was truly an amazing man and anyone who knew him personally can attest to this. I often enjoyed listening to his stories related to the Korean War and all he was doing to help people remember the “Forgotten War”. No one could be more proud of a grandfather as I was of him. This tragic loss has been extremely difficult for our family. We take some comfort in knowing that he remains very much alive in our hearts, and that he is in peace. We’ll love you always and forever grandpa.
