Luc will be missed by this soul, His down to earth attitude and straight from the hip talk always gave me a smile. Luc liked his beverages and a good laugh. He would send you some of the funniest jokes and interesting pictures on the internet. He would get upset with me when in the winter time I would suggest that we send him a snow shovel just in case he & Joyce would be snowed in , well I have to tell you that there was enough blue coming through the computer that I ‘m sure that it would melted any snow or ice away after that. Luc may have moved out west but whenever he and I would talk it wasn’t long on finding out the happenings here on the farm and with the crew. I believe that part of him still liked being in Nova Scotia with the rest of us. Joyce our thoughts, prays and love are with you.

(Great) Grampa will be so missed by our family. We are so glad that we were in Oliver in May to visit and got to spend that time with him before he left us. I, personally, am grateful that he got to know my daugher Brianna. I know that she brought a smile to his face (a smile that I see on HER face sometimes…) and I’m so glad she got to know her great gramps, even if it was only for a little while. She will hear stories of him as she grows so his memory will go on.

(Great) Gramma – We are so sorry for your loss (and ours too) and wish we could be there with you but know that we are there in spirit. We love and miss you and will see you soon!
(Great) Gramps – We miss you SO much!!!

With love always & forever,
Trina, Eljay & Brianna Camponi

Dear Joyce, it was with regret that I read of Luc’s passing- I get the Oliver Chronicle some two weeks late and simply didn’t know. I often think of you as we go across the Causeway at Port Hawksbury as I remember this is the place you were born- let me know when Luc’s ashes are to be intered and where and I will join you if at all possible- Port Hawsksbury is only 1 and 1/2 hours away for me, but I would love to see you again even on such a sad occassion- love to you from us.

Think of you everyday gramps- funny how the pain never goes away. I still feel so much regret for not coming out before you left us. I know that you know how very loved you were and still are. Wish I could see you one last time. I love you gramps, I miss you every single day.
Xoxox keep uncle Chris out of trouble! (I told him the same about you haha)
