Condolences to the entire Gagnon family on your loss. Will always remember the good times growing up and visiting Aunt Joan, Uncle Joe and the family on lexington st in Waltham. And of course the paper office. I was glad to be able to see and chat with my godparents when Aunt Natalie passed away. Unfortunately we are away at this time and can not attend the services.

Rest in peace Aunt Joan....Dave Fenton
