  4. Dear family,
    We received a letter from Marie-jose Schamp with the bad news that Gratien passed away.
    In 1971, I came from Belgium to visit my family Schamp-Malfait in Canada and then I met Gratien,
    In 1978, me and my wife Cecile and brother Emile and his wife Annie came to visit our Canadian family again.then we met Gatien and Mildred again, We were three days at their place in Calgary.
    We have very good memories of him and his wife Mildred.
    My son Bruno was later in 2000, 2001,2002, 2003 and 2004 in Canada to visit our friendly Canadian family,
    Every time he came to Canada he stayed two months on the farm of Germaine Marginet and also on the farm of John Marginet. Those were good times.
    We all love our family deep in our hearts, and offer you our deepest sympathy to the grief you will find.
    Family Jules Fack
