Happy Birthday, Marcel!

August 18, 2013

My extended family gathered in Waterville Valley yesterday at the Village Condominium rec. room and by the pool to eat, drink, swim and make merry in honor of my uncle Marcel Boisvert’s 88th birthday.

“This was the best party I’ve ever been to.”  Those words were echoed numerous times by Marce as he welcomed hugs, kisses, and well wishes from his children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews.


Reaching 88 years old is a milestone that deserves a celebration.  For Marce, that’s especially true.  Each birthday he spends with family is a blessing after having spent his 18th as a prisoner of war in a German camp wondering if he’d ever make it home again to see his family in New Hampshire.

Happy birthday, Marce!  We are blessed to have you in our lives!
