    There are many good memories I have of Uncle Roland–when the “boys” and Grandpa Cossette building the cabins at the lake, where one of many. Uncle Roland always seemed to be more reserved and quite. But also enjoyed having fun times too. We pray for Aunt Lillian that she will have strength and courage at this difficult time. To all my cousins we pray for you all too, may God give you strength, love, and courage through the difficult months ahead. These are such awesome pictures of your Dad, cherish them and remember all the joyful memories!!! Sorry we are not able to be with you to celebrate your Dads life.

    God Bless!

    Dear Lillian and Family, our sincere condolences on the loss of your husband and Dad. He was always warm and friendly, always had a great sense of humor about life, and always had a great “come back” when the ducks didn’t fall! May the many fun memories and celebrations you’ve shared as a family bring you peace and strength as you place your earthly father into the waiting arms of Jesus! Blessings to you all. Gary and Jan
