We've lost a few good people this week, haven't we? Ed McMann, Farrah Fawcett, Michael Jackson, Billy Mayes, and for us in Canada, The Right Honourable Romeo LeBlanc.
M. LeBlanc was our twenty-fifth Govenor General. To those who don't live in Canada, this position is the highest rank in Canada, the Queen's Representative, and the only person who can dissolve Parliament, sign bills into law, and represent our Queen and our country.
He was a well loved man, someone who opened the doors of his official residence in our capital city of Ottawa, to allow the public in. He pushed for Aboriginal Day, and was called The Friend of Fishermen for his work in the fisheries industy.
Like those famous Americans who have passed away this week, M. LeBlanc will be remembered for all the good things he did. Here is more info on him.
Some of these deaths this past week are sudden, but some are not. M. LeBlanc was not a young man, and had health issues. But it doesn't make his passing any easier.
To all those who have lost someone special this week, I keep you in my prayers.
