Aunt Monique, Cathy, Christine and family, our deepest sympathy for your loss. He will always be known as “Uncle” Nel to me even though not blood related — he treated us like we were! I have such beautiful memories of all our gatherings, camping outings, snowmobiling, and celebrations. He had a beautiful smile and was always there...installed flooring for us and always attended our family functions. Always a comfort knowing Uncle Nel and Aunt Monique would be present! He will forever be remembered and loved and we were all blessed to have known him. May he rest in peace...Thinking of you all during this difficult time. We love you ~ Michael and Donna Frechette

Nel came into our lives in 1960,in Beauceville.We went out together, both couple on a Saturday nite. We kept contact
and shared pleasant and difficult events throughout the years.
We stayed at their home in Lewiston, and they came visit us
in Québec. Wonderful people. Nel and Monique were always the first to make it to St-Victor if something happened.Nel was loved, and we're part of those who did.
Our hart goes out to Monique and the family.
On pense à vous autres en ces moments difficiles
