Deepest sympathies Carignan family!

My sincere condolences to the whole family. I always enjoyed visiting with my Uncle Ronald and Aunt Rosanna and five cousins as a kid. The visits were too few and too brief. (Though the Ronald Carignan family, which had to accommodate six houseguests for a week, probably felt differently!) I especially remember Ronald's soft voice and wheezy chuckle and how his face reminded me so much of my grandmother. I will miss seeing him and my Aunt Rosanna again, but I see part of each of them in the faces of their five children, who have a wonderful legacy to be proud of. My heartfelt sympathy to the family. God bless you all.
