My heart goes out to the Levesque And Cyr family. I know what's it's like to lose someone so very close and it will take a great deal of time to recover from the loss. The best thing that I have used to overcome the loss of my mother was to always remember the good times. Keep in mind what his favorite holidays were and each time they come in around celebrate them as if he was there, because he will be there in memory. My prayers go out to each and everyone. Love, Claudette, Stephen. Steve ane Cody
