Fred will be missed by many people. He was a man of few words yet, we all still have many stories about him. He has touched many people without having to say much at all. I thank God for the time I have been able to spend with Fred and will always remember his stories about World War II. I will continue to pray for him.

My dad was a great man, he was so soft spoken and loved children. I enjoyed bringing Holy Communion to him since his first stroke back in 2001. I miss him dearly and look forward to the day we meet again in Heaven. Love Your Daughter Linda Cormier

I wish I had a chance to get to know my grandfather better. It seems like life always has its excuses of why we didn't do this or that, but one thing I know for sure is that he will be missed by many. My father (Bob Lombard) and my mother have always told me of how great of a man he was to his family. I will always cherish these memories and I will do my best to pass on his values and morals to my children.

It's been so long since we talked that I'm a little lost for words.
I know my heart ache's for the loss and for Ruth who has undying love for her husband.
I have such great memories of us playing crib ridge and cards.
I can't believe your gone, to me you were such a strong, compassionate and soft spoken man,
I thought you would be here forever.
When something like this happens I tell myself God needed some good guys in Heaven.
You will always be missed, all my love from Linda,

To the Lombard family, may god bless all of you at this time of loss. please accept my sincere sympathy, and I hope you all take comfort in the fact that he is with god and not suffering anymore.

Watch, O Lord, with those who wake,
or watch, or weep tonight,
and give your angels and saints
charge over those who sleep.

Tend your sick ones, O Lord Christ,
rest your weary ones,
bless your dying ones,
soothe your suffering ones,
pity your afflicted ones
shield your joyous ones.

And all for your love's sake.

Frederick Lombard was not only my Father but my idol. He is someone I looked up to because he was the perfect dad. He loved his family and would do anything for them. He was stronger than any man I know. I loved sitting with him watching the weather channel when we got big snow storms in the winter.

He loved watching the snow fall as I do today. I see a lot of my dad in myself except the courage. My dad had courage, strength, firmness, proudness and never was afraid to show his love for Jesus. He was a proud man and wasn't afraid to show it.

I can only wish to be half the man my Dad was. There is so much more I wanted to talk to him about and do with him but now it's to late.

Dad I'm sorry we never got to spend more time together. I will see you again someday and this time I promise I will take you fishing in Heaven. I never got to say this to you and now I regret it, I love you and will miss you dearly.

Love your son PJ. R.I.P dear Father.

In My Pocket

I have memories in my pocket.
They rattle among the change.

My memories of you are treasures I carry wherever I go.

They are stored in bits and pieces, parts of a beautiful whole
They give me comfort when I think I am alone.

Yes, I have memories in my pocket, like so much other stuff I keep there.

But of all the treasures I have, it’s the memories of you that are the most precious.

My thoughts and prayers are with you in your time of grief. May your memories bring you comfort.

my papa was a great guy. he was the kind of guy that would give you the shirt off his back. he was very religious to. he went to church every sunday with his wife and his 17 kids! he used to love the winter. he loved the snow. when he got up in the morning all he wanted to do when there was snow outside was go outside and snowblow. we miss him very much but he is in a better place. after his first stroke he was only supposed to live to about six months. but instead, with the loving care of his wonderful wife he lived for almost 7 more years. after the second stroke we all new it was a matter of time that he was going to live. he lived for a week after that stroke and now because of that one morning at about 4:10 am i lost him. i would like to thank everyone for the support. it was a very devastating day and week but i am slowly getting through it. thank you.we miss you papa youll be in our hearts 4ever?.

Papa was always a great guy. He never had anything bad to say about anyone or anything. His wife, my Nana, kept him alive all of these years. Papa is in a better place now. His suffering here surely payed off.

Dad & Mom, As I sit here to think about what it is to say about my dad. I realize all of my memories are so precious that I would be writing for days so instead I decided to write about all the beautiful qualities my dad had. He was courages and strong, kind hearted and giving. My dad was a very proud hard workingman. Words could never express the love and respect I have for my dad. He has given me many things over the years but the best thing he has given me is his unconditional love and understanding. Thank you Dad for always being there for me. I love you.
Your loving daughter Donna.

Where do I begin to describe what kind of man my dad was to me. He was the most thoughtful person I know. He had the patience of a saint, he had to, to raise all of us. Only the fact that he is in a better place will heal the loss I feel. He will be greatly missed forever until the day when I can join him in my everlasting life.
