    The Martel family, your neighbors to the north, are saddened by your loss. Your husband was always a pleasant person to talk to. There were several times I came up and he would get on his John Deere and plow me a parking spot, never accepting a penny for his time. I will miss my friend next door. If we can be of any help to you, please do not be afraid to ask. Our thoughts and prayers will be with you and your husband.
