  4. I was sorry to hear of the passing of Yvon. I met Yvon briefly in 2005 at CFB Kingston, Ontario. During our chance meeting, we found we were related. Yvon’s father and my grandfather were brothers. We had a highly informative conversation about our families. I found Yvon to be very friendly and an outgoing person, and am glad we had the opportunity to meet.
    My sincere condolences to his family.
