I've known Louise Marie and Serge for 46 years. The nicest, most wonderful couple. I cannot think of Louise Marie without thinking of Serge and Serge without Louise Marie. They are embedded in my memories as an entity... I can't recall a time seeing one without the other. I was blessed to have been chosen by them to be the God Father of one of their son and I am forever grateful. It allowed me to see and realize that they had seen something in me, that they liked and allowed me to be so blessed to be their friend and become a member of their family.
I have been so pleased to see the care, patience exemplified by Serge with and towards Louise Marie. It's a life lesson in encouragement, dedication and love. I've enjoyed the many memories of my conversations with Serge. His stories, his past encounters in Haiti. I've been propelled to do better by his role modeling of continual education, joy of acquiring knowledge and his professional accomplishments.
I still vividly remember Serge teaching one of my brother-in-laws to drive in Nyack, N.Y. I will miss his quiet demeanor. His easy-going ways and attitude... His poised. Rest in Peace Serge. In your earthly passage on Earth... you've done good. You left us with good memories... with smiles on your journey and now tears because you will be missed.
Dearest Louise Marie... Love You. Yes, do shed tears... Do cry, for even Jesus cried for Lazarus. But remember, do not despair. Remember the great times you had with your husband... The places you've been with him. The sharing of the boys' upbringing... His support... Your shared life-style. Do remember that you have people (Liliane and I for sure) you can count on. We are praying for you and will be there for you. God Bless.
