FC: 90 years of Greatness

1: March 11, 2011 Dedicated to Kenneth Germain How do you describe the impact that one person has had on so many lives? Throughout your 90 years of life you have given of yourself and served others, always putting your family first. The teaching you have provided to others, whether through parenting, scouting, sports or other activities, has always demonstrated calmness and wisdom for us to follow. As a son, brother, husband, father, grand-father, and great grand-father you have given love, direction, patience, and leadership that has helped four generations forge strong family values that will be carried on in generations to come. Today we celebrate your accomplishments, your wisdom, your caring, and your 90 years of love, humor, story telling, and leadership. With love and appreciation, David and Sharon, Michael and Marla, Katie, Kyle and Kelly Michael and Judie, Jeff and Kami, Hudsyn and Brady, Jen
