From Rod and Kaye, New Zealand.
4 years ago we were on a road trip with Rene and Lisa's long-time friends, Ted and Brigitte, and were hosted by Rene and Lise for a weekend right beside the St Lawrence seaway. Before we knew it, we were out in the boat, across to the island weekender. A very warm welcome, lots of laughs and great conversation. And we didn't want to leave. A short few days, that we will always talk about.
Our sympathies to Lise and her family. Rod and Kaye

I will always remember my times at Roger's Marina. All the times on the river and the delicious perch. Rene was like an uncle, a very beloved one growing up.
