Jean-Guy Côté's wedding

Recommended Posts

Jean-Guy Côté's wedding went off well on Saturday.

 

As you recall, I posted a note a few days ago that Jean-Guy was to be married and that he has lost his battle with cancer. I also suggested that if you felt so inclined, send him an email congratulating him and the bride and/or tell him how he unknowingly helped you and your tying by the products he has brought to the tying craft.

 

I heard from my friend, Marc Madore who was at the wedding and is a very close friend of Jean-Guy that J-G was (in Marc's words) "...yes they are coming in,he is so happy ...it is hard to express he thanks you (all)very much for everything. That was something he never thought would happen, you made his so happy words are hard to find. He will probably not respond as he is very weak but he asked me to thank you and all those who sent him an email or phoned...

The e-mails kept pouring in from all mover the world, sure hope they continue,what a boost it gives him...".

 

The wedding is over and J-G has little time left. There is still time to send J-G a note for those of you who are inclined to do so. Don't worry that he might not know you either. That is part of what makes it so special to him. You can send emails to Jean-Guy at [email protected]

 

I personally thank each of you who responded. I must say that it made my day to hear his reaction.

 

I will keep you updated on J-G's condition as time goes on.

 

Happy Trails!

Ronn,

I am so very sad to hear that Jean-Guy (jan-guy as I knew him) is close to the end as I had always hoped that he would pull through. Jean Guy was a friend of mine and I lived just a few miles from him when I was in Québec in the late nineties. He was the man who pointed me in the right direction when I expressed an interest in competititon flytying and helped me in so many ways with free materials etc. I used to do a bit of work with him and helped promote his wonderful products in the USA on just a few occasions when I was fortunate enough to be available. He was also so willing to sponsor our Irish Open Competition with flytying materials and was for me a personal friend. Last time I spoke with Jean Guy was 15 months ago when we had supper together at Gaetan Poirier's house in St. Therese, Quebec. We compared cameras anad I showed him my latest Traherne patterns...he was as always so gracious in his comments.

 

I hope I get the chance to speak to him one more time. Ronn thank you for bringing this sad and happy news to our attention.

I do not know him, but just the fact that he decided to countinue with his marriage with all that he is facing is really an inspiration in my opinion. He must be a great guy. I just sent him a brief email. Hopefully we can help put a smile on his face in his time of need.
