Although I've shared sympathetic words in a note to Normand's step-daughter, Barbara, remembrances above raised memories of the good and special man I recall from frequent contact in my childhood. My thoughts and prayers are with Ann and all family members.

Although we only spent time with him a few times in our lives, us Frontain kids loved our dear Uncle Normand. His endless smile and quiet sense of humour will endure forever. I will always appreciate getting to spend time with him at Uncle Gerald's 90th in Hamilton. He so wanted to meet my family and for me to meet his. One day I hope we can. Our condolences to Ann, Ken, Gordon, their families as well as his sister Rose and all remaining brothers. Sincerely; Rich, Kelly, Rachel and Bridgette Frontain of Regina Saskatchewan Canada
