Ernest Jos Omer Gagnon

April 30, 1929-June 8, 2012

A natural born problem-solver and an unconventional thinker, Ernie lived a life full of creation, which included raising six sons, Marcel, Gérald, Roland, Alfred, Jean, and Robert, with his wife of 56 years, Cécile. Ernie’s strength and pride will be remembered with fondness and his spirit will live on through the unique impression he has left on those around him.

Death is nothing,

I’ve just passed into the other room.

I am Me, you are You.

All that we were for each other

We still are forever.

Give me the name you always gave me.

Talk to me as you always have

Do not use a different tone

Do not be solemn or sad

Keep laughing at what made us laugh together

Pray, smile, think of me

Let my name be spoken at home

As it always was… without drama

Of any sort and without darkness.

Life means what it has always meant.

The thread has not been cut.

Why should I be out of your thoughts?

I am simply out of your sight.

I am waiting for you. I am not far.

Just on the other side of the path.

And within you if you so want.

There will be no public service held, however, if you would like to stop in to share a story or two with Cécile, we encourage you to do so. In lieu of flowers, please consider doing something to make someone else happy.
