Remembered Fondly

I fondly remember all the times that I would meet Mr. Plouffe around town and we would discuss many things especially education, an interest he maintained long after he was no longer a trustee. Please accept my sympathies
Miss you

Love you always Grandpa your the best. I will always cherish the memories we had together. Whenever I need guidance I know that you'll be by my side. You never gave up when the going got rough and I plan to do the same by pushing foward in life.

Working at Loeb in Chemmy for almost 10 years, it was always a pleasure when Mr. Plouffe came in the store. A great man indeed
