    To all of the Sauvageau family & esp. to my friend/co worker(Char Anda) of the passing of your Uncle.
    I know all of you will miss Ed but from what I hear about him, he lived a very good/long life.
    But I know it still hurts very much to loose a loved one.
    Hold on tight to the many special memories that he leaves with you. Such a very nice photo of him.
    My Thoughts/Prayers are with all of your family.

    On behalf of the Jeanne (Peake) Sauvageau family, we would like to express our sorrow for the passing of Mr. Sauvageau. Though we never had the privilege of spending much time with him, we know that he was a special man, loved by his family and all those who came to know him. He set a fine example for our brother-in-law, Richard, who is loved and admired by our entire family. If the days ahead are difficult, remember you will hold him in your heart; you will find solace in your family and your faith, and you can move forward knowing you have been blessed.
