    Oh Pierre 💙 you were the funniest, cheeky soul, you were also ticklish as old heck. I used to get a kick out of him, when he wasn't paying attention and you'd touch him on the shoulder or the leg and he'd nearly jump out of his skin thinking you were going to tickle him! Lol He really enjoyed his sweets and his coffee, he'd comply with anything, for a cookie!!! I remember, He would laugh if you gave him "Canadian French toast" and he'd tell us , "it wasn't French, or even toast!" (Inside joke from Mackenzie place) he will be dearly missed! I am grateful I got in to see him the day before he passed peacefully. Rest easy Pierre 💙
