    My sincere condolences to you all out west, especially Irene, Joanne, Andrea. I wish we could all be there. There are many good memories of Uncle Andre. One in particular was a trip through the Rockies and a very treacherous hike to a tea house at the top of a large climb. Andre did the entire hike and pushed us all to finish it! Alexe was there and we both felt very proud watching him enjoy part of his element in nature. I loved to hear his stories when I started to drive about watching out for the cherries in my window. He had a good sense of humor and adored his grand-kids/family.
    You are all in my thoughts, and miss you all.

    I was very saddened and shocked to learn of Andre’s passing and have come to slowly know both Andre and Irene since they first became my neighbors almost one year ago. The few memories that I have of my conversations and visits with Andre will forever be a treasure in my memory,along with my deepest thoughts and prayers being with both Andre’s and Irene’s family members. Attached is a short video to help bring some emotional comfort.

    Irene,

    Darren Forrester here and I want you to know that I often think of you and Andre. I loved my time at WIC because of people like you and Andre. You are both are wonderful people and Andre is a good man. He loved the Habs and so do I and often in the hallways we would talk, but not for too long – Andre was a man of action and he had to get on with his job (or he would have to answer to you)!

    I send you my prayers and thoughts during this challenging time. I am proud to say that I got to know a little bit of your fantastic husband. Andre was so nice and I know that you are a strong women. I send you my condolences.
    Darren, Mary, Emma and William
