So sorry for your loss! I remember Uncle Jake(I called him that because my cousins did) as such a sweet giant with a big smile. I know his kindness will be remembered by many. May each of you take comfort in knowing that he’s rejoicing in heaven with Aunt Mary! God bless each of you!!
Sorry to hear the news. Our condolences to the family. Big Jake will surely be missed. He was a great brother to our Grandmother Juliette. He is now with Mary and his family. May they all shine down on us. Love and peace to all from the Parrotts, Lou, Johanna, Leah, Colleen, Jerry, Laurie and Carol. Jake has made it to the finish line.
To the Lamoureux family-
On behalf of the Riel and Pelletier family, formerly of Woodstock, CT, I extend our sincerest condolences on the recent passing of your beloved family member, JAMES J LAMOUREUX. Many years ago, as my parents resided in the Norwich (CT) area, they knew some of your elder relations, uncle Francis Lamoureux, aunt Simone (Comtois) Lamoureux, and her sisters, Delores Comtois, all of Baltic, CT, along with Sr Yvette Comtois, of Hudson, NH, whom all originated from Thompson, CT, all of whom demonstrated a strong devout Catholic faith and have passed away within the last 20 years. May Jake’s service to his family, community and nation be rewarded into life everlasting. Respectfully submitted-
(Son of Frances (Lachance-Pelletier)Riel (1931-2017)
(Stepson of Patrick S Riel/1931-2020)
Dear Uncle Jake,
Thank you for all the memories we shared at your 90th, and my visit four years ago. Thank you for your service, and being an inspiration for me. I am extremely regretful I missed the funeral.
