Aylmer couple celebrate 68 years of marriage
Unfortunately, within a few years, Andre suffered two serious health challenges that changed the course of both their lives. After recovering from a leg amputation, wheelchair sports became Andre`s passion. With Cecile by his side, basketball, sledge hockey, and tennis helped him to adjust to his new reality, but then open-heart surgery forced him to stop these activities. Andre`s interest in the arts led to a return to studies, where he earned a bachelor's degree from UQO. He still enjoys painting and photography today while Cecile can be found enjoying activities at the Club de L'Age D'Or with her numerous friends.
Today, they are grandparents to 7 grandchildren and 9 great-grandchildren. Mom, Dad, congratulations on your 68 years together. Your family loves you and we are very proud of you - your family
