    Dear Joyce and Family,
    So sad to hear about your Dad. He fought a long battle.
    Went through the same thing recently and know
    exactly how you feel and what you are going through.
    Sorry I could not make it to the service but you
    are in my thoughts and prayers. God Bless!

    Cher frère tu vas nous manquer énormément.
    Je n’oublierai jamais ton goût pour la musique. Tu avais le rythme dans la peau. Tu m’as donné le goût de la musique que j’ai transmis à mes enfants.
    Repose en paix. Tu seras toujours dans nos coeurs.

    Ta soeur qui t’aime.

    A Kamal,
    Tu es parti trop tôt. Nous gardons en mémoire un frère aimant, un musicien talentueux et surtout un père de famille qui a élevé une famille de trois enfants adorables.
    L’été dernier, les quelques jours passés ensemble furent un véritable bonheur.
    Je pense à Rima, Joyce, Jason et James en ce moment douloureux et leur adresse toutes mes condoléances.
    Nous vous embrassons.
    Noëlle, Francis, Laura, Arthur et Charlotte

    I thank you for waiting for me and giving me the chance to go see you and say my goodbyes before you leave us to a better place where you will be in the care of God’s Angels and in his warmth!
    Until we meet again,
    Your cousin Viviane.

    Although it says we are cousins but we were brought up as brothers! You will be missed a lot, but never forgotten.
