Estelle and family, I am so sad to hear of your dad's passing. He was a wonderful quiet peaceful man. My parents always liked and respected your dad and mom. Your parents knew how to enjoy life, and I always admired how close they seemed to be together. I am very happy that I have had the opportunity to know them and Geatan and Estelle. Know that I care and will keep you and your family in my prayers as you face these difficult days...

My sincere condolences to Estelle and her family. He was such a wonderful man, I miss his beautiful smile sitting in the hallway chair waiting for lunch. He would always say to me slow down, slow down only 2 miles an hour here. He loved coming to the dances with his sidekick Mr Labrecque , they would talk for hours the two of them. I'll miss him very much and like he'd say J' t'aime Romeo... ❤❤

I was so glad I got to spend time with your dad in November when I was back home in Cornwall. He was sharp minded and witty and I very much enjoyed watching you two play cards. We should all be so lucky to lead such a long and healthy life. Sending condolences your way.

Barb and I offer you our deepest condolences on this tremendous loss. Anytime we saw Mr. Marcil, he always had a smile and his laugh brightened the room. We are sure he is bringing joy to those he is sharing his time with in the afterlife, and is basking in the love of his reunion with Mrs. Marcil and his son Gaëtan.

Our condolences to Estelle and extended family on the loss of Uncle Romeo. I remember him as always smiling, especially when we would make the trip from Syracuse to Cornwall and he was working the booth on the bridge. We always hoped he would be there to greet us. All our prayers and love are with you, Colette, Nicole, Donald and Daniel Godard.
