My sympathy to the Babineau Family,
I had the pleasure of working with David at McLean Hospital. He was hard working, dedicated and pleasant to everyone who came in contact with him.
We will keep the fond memory of a fine gentleman.

To the Babineau family,

I am very sorry to hear about the passing of your father. He was a wonderful man. Every time I saw him he had a smile, a joke, and a warm thought for everyone around him.

Please accept my deepest sympathy.

I have the fondest of memories of Christmas and the 4th of July at Belmont with Uncle Dave and Aunt Ruthie.
I loved that old house, in retrospect, an architectural marvel.
I remember my trips to the basement and the old coal shoot and the big dirty
oil furnace and how dark and scary it was but how warm and inclusive it was
in the home upstairs. The Xmas tree was swathed in tinsel and lit by a revolving colored light so much the expression of the time.
Aunt Ruthie and Uncle Dave never failed to produce winter gloves for us all year after year at Christmas,
a testament to their sense of family.
My condolences to all uncle Daves children and survivors
lucky all were to have been blessed by Uncle Dave and his sense of inclusiveness.

Edward McHugh
