July 12, 2018 - 1:08 amWhen I moved to Montreal as a

When I moved to Montreal as a teenager, I couldn't speak any French, and my first real job was in a stable that knew no English.

Every Saturday this French gentleman and his son would come to the barn and jog horses.
I would get to the barn early every Saturday and get all my stalls done and have all the horses I took care of ready to jog early.
That kid grew to be one of my best friends and his dad like a second father. Marcel would take us out to lunch and Dominic and I would hang out and go to the movies. They started to learn English and I stumbled through french.
No matter where I was or what I was doing Marcel would always call and act so proud if I did something newsworthy.
As I moved away Montreal to Ontario I often thought of Marcel and Dominic and spoke to them Frequently.
I was sad to learn he had fallen ill, and heart broken to hear of his passing.
I spoke to him just a few weeks ago and said he should visit and we would go to lunch and catch up. Sadly we ran out of time.

I'm old enough now that unfortunately I get to see many of the people who played major roles in my life pass on, or fade away.
although we all experience this, I fear with each passing a little bit of me goes with them. But possibly a little bit of them stays with me?

I'll miss Marcel, and our chats. He was good man with a huge heart.
To Dominic, Martin and Yvette, I'm truly sorry for your loss.

I suspect if all goes well, Marcel and I will have that lunch one day.

Repose en paix.
