To the Armell family,
I was so sorry to read of Maurice’s passing through the Addition Independant. I have fond memories of Maurice working for Norm and I at HJL during his years with us. He was always a hard worker and was very skilled at his trade. He represented HJL in true fashion and was always very considerate of our customers.
I especially have fond memories of Maurice when he worked on my small breakfast addition at my house at 122 Green Street in Vergennes. It was a very cold winter that year. At times, he had to work outside in the cold during the framing phase. He always took it well!
I wish the Armell family my condolences and comfort during your time of healing from your loss.
Best to you all.
