Linda I am so sorry to hear of your Dad’s passing. I always enjoyed our conversations about Uxbridge and especially North Uxbridge. He was always a gentleman and always had a positive attitude about everything. He always looked forward to Memorial Day and Veterans Day parades and was so proud to march in them. He was part of the Greatest Generation ever and I have so much respect for him for that. He will be missed by many but certainly never forgotten. Once again Linda my deepest sympathies to You and Your Family.

Joe, Christine and Marc Boule

It is so very sad to have Great Uncle Eddy depart from our lives. I will always cherish the beautiful loving times we all shared as a family. I will always remember him as the funny, smiling, jokester Uncle who could light up a room wherever he went. May he rest in the greatest peacefulness within the compassionate company of all the loved ones who departed before him, those of which will also never be forgotten. Rest in peace Uncle Eddy, I will miss you.
