M. Bohemier vous étiez toujours plein de pep, une humour incomparable et pleins d’histoires a raconter. Vous avez de quoi être fier de vos accomplissements et de votre belle famille dont je me sens fière d’ être compter parmi leurs amis. Vous serez manquer. Bon repos dans les bras de votre chère Béatrice.

Twenty seven years ago, I met my future Father and Mother in Law in St. Lucia. They flew all the way from Kelowna to be at the wedding of their son Jean Marc. This meant so much to me because I knew they were not used to flying around for beach vacations. They also met my parents and my Aunt & my Uncle Bill who had also been in the war. The two of them got along so well and would sing us their old war songs. We had a wonderful week in the sun and sand getting to know each other. I was very impressed when my future father in law got up to do the limbo and dance with the belly dancers! My in laws were great! Always loving and accepting.

“I remember the time that I met Cyprien. I was with my mother and we were camping in St. Malo Provincial Park. We went to visit him and his wife one evening and it was I think the day after Doris's wedding. We had a good visit, got to meet the twins who were 5 years old and a couple of other family members. This is way back in 1978. This was around the time when our great Uncle Claude Champagne passed away in August of that year. I was also starting the Champagne Family tree. RIP cousin.”
