I’m so sorry to hear of Mrs St. Gelais passing. Years ago I used to babysit all of the kids. Kevin was just a few months old. I was the neighbor. My first babysitting job ever. Made me the person I am today with kids. What a nice family. There will always be wonderful thoughts in my mind about the whole family. My thoughts and prayers go out to Mr. St. Gelais and all the kids. ❤️
