To the Nadeau family.I am so sad and send my sympathies to all of you. I knew Mr Nadeau from his regular visits to Mid Maine Savings Bank. Both him and you also Linda were always kind and nice to us. He always had a smile for everyone and really enjoyed talking about his children. He really was excited to see his daughter marry and even brought pictures after for all of us to see. He was very generous sharing ice cream with the teller line. The world has lost a good man and we all are sad he is gone.

I met Ron before he opened his own refrigeration business and was working for Daris. He was a great guy and very trustworthy through the years he did our refrigeration work. He and his company served us well. He is going to be greatly missed, and our hearts go out to you, Linda and all the family.

To Linda and all the Nadeau family, I send my deepest sympathy for your loss. I worked at the front desk at Philips Elmet for 17 years and Ron was almost a fixture at Elmet. He was upbeat (most of the time):-), friendly, professional and had a wonderful sense of humor. On his really good days he would throw a couple of coupons for free ice cream on my desk.......and I used them all. Ron was just a very likeable human being with kindness in his heart. I now live in Cherry Hill, NJ but have been keeping up on his condition through my sister in law Sue Renaud who is in a book club with you.......Linda. My heart shares in your loss, but I know that Ron is smiling on all his family right now because he is at peace and is pain free and he knows that he is going to see all of you again in a better place.

God Bless All of You and may all the memories of his love and laughter give you peace and comfort in the days to come.
