Dad,
No one can know what you have meant to us all of our lives. No one will know the pain and sorrow your seven children and grandchildren are feeling. You are everything to us. You were the true meaning of a Father. Selfless, loving and giving. We love your more than words can describe and we miss you every minute of every day. I love you Dad...you are everything to me. Thank you for being the person you were.

Dad, I miss you so much!
I prayed for you everyday when you were with us and I will pray for you everyday until I see you again.
Love you always,
Ann

Bob and I were deeply saddened when we heard of Normand's passing. Whenever we were at Pepin's Beach, we would find ourselves in the middle of some crazy conversation about who knows what! We would banter back and forth trying to solve the world's problems! All kidding aside, we want to extend our sympathy and love to you, Lucille, and your beautiful family. What a legacy! Please know that we will remember all of the Pepin family during this difficult time, and beyond...
