Sorry to hear of the passing of your Father and Grandfather. He always had a special place in our hearts around the hockey arena. I always enjoyed running into him at the coffee shop when we would chat about the old days. Please accept my condolences.....God Bless

I was saddened to hear of the passing of Uncle Emiel. My sincerest condolences to Rick, Mike, Brian, Pat and Dave as well as their spouses, children and grandkids. My mom and dad said they just saw Uncle Emiel two weeks ago and he was chipper and joking around. Thinking of you during this difficult time.
