Comments:
I'm sorry to hear about your loss, Ryan. Sounds like a great man. I lost my grandfather nearly three years ago, and it sounds like these guys might have gotten along pretty well.
 
My condolences, Ryan.

He seems like such a nice guy.
 
My condolences as well, Ryan. He sounds like a wonderful, well-loved man.
 
is this the same vic that is related to the cousineau's.
 
If you mean the large, Vancouver-based Cousineaus, yes, it's that Vic.
