Dear Lucille and Family You may not remember us but Rosario and my Dad Fred Normandeau were roomates in 2009 before his passing in July. We kind of got to know Rosario back then. You and your family have our heartfelt sympathies for your loss. May time heal your broken hearts. Your Truly John and Rose Normandeau
