I met Mr. Dubois at the VFW golf course and worked with him putting on the "Frenchy" open. He had a heart of gold and one could see the love and compassion in his eyse for his family and the sadness of seeing what his son went through. I pray that he and "Frenchy" are reunited on a celectial golf course. My thought and prayres go out to all of the family. Respectfully, Mike Doyle
