Yesterday morning I lost my uncle, my godfather but above all a friend

April 5, 2022

Comrade Claude (Ti Cas) Lavoie

Yesterday morning I lost my uncle, my godfather but above all a friend.

Claude had been suffering for a long time. He suffered from an invisible disease. Of those that we do not see physically but that devastate just as much.

Is it this disease which is directly responsible for his death? I don't know at the moment. But I am convinced that it has contributed greatly to it.

I am not writing here to pay tribute to Claude, that I will do with the family and the people who were dear to him in time and place. It's more about awareness.

As I mentioned, my godfather had been suffering for a long time. With hindsight, I am able to see the evolution of this evil that inhabited him.

This disease which means that, for people who have never been there, me being the first not so long ago, we judge those who suffer from it. It's just a bad pass, he just has to kick his ass and it will pass, we tell ourselves, wrongly.

This illness that makes us isolate ourselves, not necessarily voluntarily, but quietly and slyly.

This disease which, for fear of appearing weak or cowardly, causes us to repress.

We didn't see each other as often as we'd like, but when we were together it was a blast, in a good way.

For some you were his brothers for me and mine he called us his "sons" to show us how much he loved us. He was like that, he wanted to be surrounded and he loved everyone. My biggest fear is that he left us thinking he was alone and isolated. However, I take comfort in knowing that he was accompanied on a daily basis by a superb and strong woman [France Trépanier]

I end by telling you this; tell your family, friends and loved ones that you love them as often as possible at the risk of sounding “cheesy”. It avoids wondering, when people leave us, if they knew how much they were loved and appreciated. For those who suffer in silence do not hesitate to speak up.

Watch over us. I am proud of what you had accomplished but especially of the person you were.

I love you

Your nephew, your godson, your friend.
