The Desgagnes Family

No words can be conveyed to the Family in the loss of Jean Guy at this very sad and difficult time. We first met when he was at Normick Perron as a purchasing agent, and me at Gordon Stationery, (we had a private joke about his Bro Moe) always a good time and lots of laughs when he came in, then carried on for many years of friendship, sitting in the Blue Line room with Noel watching the Miners sharing candies. I will truly miss our talks, & laughs. Just a couple of weeks ago, seen and talked when he came to the KDH, I'm glad of that. To Jackie and her Family, so sorry for your loss. RIP Jean Guy
