Our sincere condolences to the Lavigne family, relatives and friends of Uncle Herman. I have fond memories of playing many different board games in the Lavigne household while Uncle Herman watch on in amusement. He was quiet, but never timid to speak up or help out a neighbor when needed. Despite only being able to visit him on rare occasions in recent years, he always remembered me even though my looks have changed so much. I will miss our chats on family and CN rail. God bless. XOX
