Lucy and family: I am so very sorry to learn of Francis's passing. I am a little behind in my genealogy work so just now learning the news. Bobby and I had such wonderful memories of our times in Arichat. Bobby made 80 and Francis 90 so they both lived full lives although there will always be a whole in my heart as I am sure will be in yours. Bobby and Francis are most likely swapping stories in heaven and catching up on lost times. My sincere condolences to Bob and Vivian and their families. You will be in my thoughts and prayers. Barb Martell
A loved ones passing is never easy. Our heartfelt condolences to Lucy, Bob, Vivian and families. I will always have my wonderful memories of visiting with my best friend Vivian, for many sleepovers enjoying Lucy's Whoopie pies, and raking the fresh cut grass from the large beautiful yard with Francis, the gentle papa bear. RIP Francis.
With sincere sympathy,

What an amazing life, so well written, we had no idea of the many accomplishments and interests of Francis, an amazing life .
Our sympathy to Lucy, Bob, Vivian and there families. Ruby&Eugene
We are saddened that Francis has taken his magic moonbeam ride, but a life well used brings a happy sleep. Francis was a good friend from school days and he leaves us with many fond remembrances. We send sincere condolences to Lucy, Bob, Vivien and families - there will be a big hole left, but one cannot feel saddened over the loss of those loved without first remembering the joy of loving them. The real sadness would be never having had them in our lives.
Our condolences to Lucy and family. Francis was a true gentleman. My parents (Joe and Dorothy Goyetche) always spoke highly of Francis and enjoyed his visits to Bathurst. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

My sympathy to you Lucy, Bobby & Vivian & condolences also to your families.
Memories of Francis ,I have quite a few but one ide like to share today ... one day at St. Anne’s he asked me who I was related to .
I said “ j’suis la fille a Harry “ “Harry LeBlanc”,he asked. I said,“ ouie “. He got very emotional & said “ I sure miss my ole friend “.
I didn’t mention Dad again unless to make him laugh & on a ’Good’ day ! May it bring you comfort, as it does me ,in knowing they are together again. In writing this, I imagined..... Dad , Alphonse,& Joe LeJeune probably met Francis long before he arrives to the Pearly Gates “ pour un petit coup “ before they finally head for HOME ! RIP Francis with your friends & loved ones
Lucy, Bobby, Vivian and all of your families, My Sincerest Sympathy in the passing of Francis! He was a remarkable and lovely man, and I am sure he will be dearly missed by all! It was very nice to have seen and talked with him last summer at St Annes when I was down home for the summer season. May he Rest In Peace!
Our deepest condolences to Lucy.Bobby & Vivian .May he R.I.P. Gerard & Eunice Boudreau

I met Francis while taking a Christopher leadership course many years ago. He was the oldest student and I was the youngest student. We became good friends. He shared so many interesting stories of his life. He always spoke so fondly of his wife and children. We kept in touch for a few years after that. He was always so kind and pleasant and he left an impression on me to say the least. So sad to hear this news. My condolences to his family.
