To the Cornock you know your dad and grandpa was loved by all. He was always positive and kind. He was so proud of you grand kids. He was so fortunate to have you there with him by his side in those last days.. about 6 months ago we had a great visit with him and he told us some great stories that happened to him when he came to Mariapolis in his young days with the horses. He said those Mariapolis fellas were alot of fun but hard to get away from . , The Christmas eve mass story, that he said he did not know if his mom ever believed him. He could not get his horses out of the livery stable to go home till Mass was over so he just went to mass with the the fellas to wait for his horses.His memory for stories was so great we could of listened to him for hours.
To the Desrochers family....Rose and Elton danced almost as long as they could walk, that was their great passion and they did it alot. We know there comes a time for everything but we should all take their example of having fun in life and being positive is the best way to get thru this life. Also enjoying family was important to them. Stay positive and some day those two will be together again.

We're very sorry to hear of Elton's passing. He was a great help to me as a young man, and was one of those people that just seemed to know how to do things. Brent & Laurel McLennan
