Lucille, My best condolences to you regarding Uncle Lionel. My thoughts are with you for this difficult time. I have an excellent souvenir from Lionel.  Particularly when I made many trips, during the summer to Waterville and Old Orchard Beach a long time ago.    You and Lionel have been like my second parents. I will never forget that. Normand Morin (son of Cécile and Ovila) 8105, rue du Larmier Québec (Québec) Canada G2K 2E5
