To the family of Mr. Raymond C. LaCasse, we mourn the loss of a brother Knight. We want to send our love, admiration and respect to his memory. The life he lived might be summed up in a few words: he was sincere, earnest, loyal, industrious, and self sacrificing. No one, whose privilege it was to know him, is likely to forget his courage or his faith in his service to God, community, family and his brother Knights. We extend our deepest sympathy to his family.
Mr. & Mrs. Edward F. Mele, Jr
Past State Deputy, NH Knights of Columbus

Ann, Mark and family, So very sad to hear about your Dad's passing. He was a wonderful man. One thing left off his obituary was kind heart at Christmas when he volunteered several years to play Santa for 40 children in the daycare. He was such a great sport and truly loved making children happy. Our deepest sympathy for your loss. He was very special, that's why you are, too.
