The Loss of a Light so Bright

 “Perhaps they are not stars, but rather openings in the heaven where the love of our lost ones pour through and shine down upon us.”

February 20, 1944 ~ October 15, 2001

How can such a dynamic life be captured in a few words or a single paragraph? How can I write all that should be noted about, my brother, John E. DeGrenier Jr. and his accomplishments? At best, I need to keep this dedication simple, as I know he would want it be.

John or “Johnny”, however you may have known him, was a dedicated Son, Dad, Grandfather, Brother, Friend and Businessman. Each roll that made up the journey of his life was embraced with enthusiasm, love and perseverance.

Even though his precious life ended  prematurely, the endeavors of his life continue through his daughters, grandsons and Willows Cranberries. In life’s journey, the footprints that he left upon this earth will live on in his accomplishments and in our hearts.

Thank you, Johnny, for your life, your love and for the torch that you have passed on to your family.   You will be eternally missed and never forgotten.
