Not sure what to say?

Dear Beaulieu family,
I have such fond memories of living across the alley from you in North Mpls. Your dad was such a strong man and saved my brothers a few times back in the day. I did not realize that he was this handsome when he was younger. May he now walk forever hand in hand with your mother.
Sincerely,
Maureen Rioux

John was my mentor in carpentry. We worked together for 4-5 years and I have many fond memories. He was probably the best carpenter I ever worked with. He taught me a lot. Thanks John! Rest in pease. Duane Egor Beltrand
