I miss you and think of you every day Mom. I can't believe an entire year has passed. If you were here I'd give you a big hug and kiss. I love you forever.

It has been almost a year Aunty since you have been gone. I still miss you very much. Going to Concord is not the same for me anymore because we can't stop by to see you or take you to lunch. I can still hear your voice in my head saying "Auntie Loves You"

Your niece

Cliff,

I am sorry for your recent loss and my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. I only had a chance to meet Marion twice, yet I recall her warmth and hospitality which is clearly evident in the other guest entries. The poet Kahlil Gibran wrote that "Sadness is but a wall between two gardens" I hope that you find solace in the memories you have of your mom and that that wall becomes easier to cross.

TO Henry Langevin & family. I am sorry for your loss. 2nd cousin Marion was not only a talented individual she was a nice lady & a good mother. I remember the last time I saw her she was with Mildred Christmas shopping in Target's & I went up & gave her a hug she was so glad to see me. I just wish I could have said my final goodbyes to her & tell her that I love her & will miss her.

Aunty, I remember the very first time you asked me if I wanted to stay with you at Bow Lake. I was probably 8 or 9 years old. I think we were there visiting for a long weekend. I really wasn’t to cool on staying with you because I knew I would miss my Mom and Dad and we lived what seemed to be so far away at the time Keene NH. But, after a few days with my cousins whom I loved to death, I wanted to stay forever. And I did. I was so lucky to be able to spend many of my childhood summers at Bow Lake. It was my second home with my second Mom and Dad (Just like Pete but they liked me best). I have so many memories that can never be taken away and I think of them often. Like the boat trips to Bennett Island for picnics, jogging with Uncle Henry every morning at 6:00am sharp (sometimes I would sleep in and he wouldn’t mind though). Hikes to Lookout point which had an awesome view of the lake that seemed like it was hundreds of yards up. Here is one great childhood memory: On one of our trips to Thorne’s store for candy, I bought a Hershey Almond bar. When I bit into it, I bit something very hard like a rock. I proceeded to eat the rest of the candy bar of course but I kept what appeared to be a rock. My cousins said I should send that to the Hershey Company and they might send me some free candy for my troubles. So, Debby composed a letter to the Hershey company, stuck the rock on the letter and Uncle Henry sent it out in the mail. What seemed to be an eternity to a 10 year old 6 weeks or so went by and Uncle Henry handed me a box from the mail and it had one of every candy bar that Hershey made at the time (6 I think) in it along with a letter that said the rock was an over roasted almond. That box made my day! And yes I did share with everyone although I was hoping for a whole case of candy bars. At night sometimes we would tell ghost stories my favorite being the tale of Three Fingered Willie. I’d have nightmares after that one. I still talk about that one today. You can Google Three Fingered Willie on the internet and the story is actually out there. Then there were the times where us kids would be trying to sleep on the porch and the adults decided to head to the lake for a swim, of the skinny kind. And the politics, my Dad and Aunt Marion would spend hours discussing the politics of the day. Who could sleep through all that? Thank You Aunty for all the memories. Memories that will last a lifetime. I will see you on the other side. I love you.

Someone once said this to me and it helped a lot when I lost someone dear. "Try not to be sad for the life thats been lost, but rather rejoice for the life that was lived." My thoughts are with you all.

My childhood was filled with wonderful trips to visit Aunt Marion, Uncle Henry, and their family during the summer at Bow Lake. Fifty years later, I still love cruising by the old lake house and remembering the times in taking canoes to the island and playing with cousins. We lived for a short time in the lake house before I started school. My father (Ron, Uncle Henry’s brother) would carry me on his shoulders as we took the dirt road to meet the school bus for the older kids. Aunt Marion’s hospitality was always tops.

To my aunts, uncles, cousins, and the entire Langevin clan – may our memories and the caring thoughts of other provide comfort. Aunt Marion is “rockin’ it” in heaven – you just know it!

Thank you Auntie for being my second mother all those summers at bow lake, all those memories from a time so long ago. I will miss you deeply and hold you close to my heart as I look back to a time when life was at a slower pace, and we all had time to sit on the porch at night and listen to the loons, at that wonderful spot on bow lake.
