So, so sorry to all of the family whom I and the rest of my family didn't 'really' get to know until they moved next door to us years back. I'll never forget my memories of Philippe being not only one of the HARDEST workers I've met in my life, but also a very 'laid back' man as well. Always a smile on his face. I wondered sometimes if he 'ever' had any problems despite having such a big ol' family. Larry of course, who I 'didn't' get to know well because of our age difference, and Larry moving onto the Fort(Frances) to become a very successful 'meat cutter' in SAFEWAY. Then there was Dennis the 'joker'; didn't know 'him' too well either, other than the fact that he was a 'very hard worker' to go along with that 'wit' of his. Then there was Darryl; older and abit of a 'partier' if I remember correctly. Only reason I say 'that' is because of I used to 'babysit' for them (Phil and Margurite) whenever they went across to Baudette to their 'club' and sometimes Darryl would come home, crash out on the couch, tell me I could 'go home now' that 'he' was home and I was always a 'bit' worried about 'DARCY' the youngest if he would be taken care of or not. Lol (he always 'was' of course). I was just a bit of a 'worrier' was all. As for Darcy? Well; whats to say? He was the 'BEST' son anyone could have 'possibly' ask for. When they(Phil and Margurite) would leave, me and DARCY would have the 'greatest' time 'playing games', 'tag', you name it, we did it; till he got 'tired' of course. Can't really remember if I read him 'stories' or not; but if he'd wanted for me to, I'd do it. We're 'ALL' going to miss you PHIL. Thank you for the memories. Michael, Raymond, Mom and Dad. Now you're at PEACE; so 'sleep'; and we'll ALL see you on the Other Side. Luvs and Hugs. Bye for now; but see you in the future. The Desrosiers
