It is hard to believe that "Grandpapa" is gone. He left us with so many great memories, over so many years. As I think back over the decades there are so many memories that I will ramble. I first met him outside of Atwater Metro station in Montreal in 1974 where he had agreed to drive Michèle and me to get our Canadian Ski Patrol jackets.

From there the time blurs... our wedding...their visit to Trinidad where we rode in the back of a pick-up while Michèle drove, ...our stay in a rustic guest house in Tobago. He did not like chaos, in Trinidad while reading the newspaper he read that a bus was causing traffic congestion, he was incredulous to read that it had been there for two years. He was adventuresome, accompanying me on a tourné to remote villages in Niger. There he asked a young man with a watch what time it was and the young man replied that "his watch was sleeping." He reminded me of that incident over the years always with a chuckle. Always willing to help with a project during their trips between St Lambert, QC and Sebastian, FL he helped with the construction of our addition and installing flooring as well as other projects.

One of my regrets is that over the years on different courts, in different countries, I never beat him in a set of tennis. My birthdays will be more lonely now that I will not share them with Grandpapa.

He will be missed but not forgotten. May his soul rest in peace in paradise.
