    So very sad to hear the news of Moe’s passing. I haven’t seen Moe since he moved from Grand Falls-Windsor. Whenever he came to Dominion where I worked we would have a great chat and a few laughs.Moe was a super person and I always considered him to be one of my favourite cousins. He is reunited with his love, Gladys. Thinking of his family and sending sincere condolences. RIP Moe.
