From: Marty & Charlene Lalonde & family
Relation: Student & Friend

Dear Carmen, Christine, Ginette, Josee, Denis, Blair et all,
We are so sorry to hear of the loss of such a wonderful Father, “Pepe” & friend. He was very nice to my Mother when she taught under his Principalship at NDJH. He also is responsible for me being selected for a school trip to Ont. in High School. It was Armand that gave me the “Travel Bug”. I’ll always remember his smile & his friendly, compassionate nature. I’ll be there in spirit this afternoon. I hope it brings you all some measure of comfort to know he’s with his beloved Alice again. Love & prayers are sent your way…
