My thoughts are with you and your families. Your Dad really was a gentle spirit and I have many fond memories of visiting when we were younger. I will remember him for his creativity (elaborate Lego!) and delicious crepe breakfasts!

I was sad to hear the news that Alex had passed away.
For several years we connected regularly by phone and had interesting and meaningful conversations.
He was so proud of his Musquetier heritage.(my late mother was a Musquetier)
To his family and friends, who loved him, may his memory be a blessing to you!
Rest In Peace Alex. You are missed.
