Sorry to hear of your lost. Our thoughts and prayers are with Aunt Pat, Fred, Fay, Jimmy and their family. Our fondest memory was back in the early 80s when Gilles was a DJ at the Moose Hall, Uncle Omer and Aunt Pat never missed a song and danced the night away.

Uncle Omer will be deeply missed by us.
