    I have many memories of Grandpa Pouliot! The biggest things I remember about Grandpa is the funny things and jokes that he always had to tell. The two sayings I remember him saying most is ‘Don’t let the Rain Hurt the Rubarb’ and ‘Dunca Shaun’. I will probably cry sometimes on the remembrance of Grandpa. I know he is in a better place now without pain and suffering. He had a fun-loving personality and will be deeply missed by his loved ones! I LOVE YOU GRANDPA!!

    I will never forget Grandpa or the things he did for his family. His family and faith always came first. He was a blessing to the entire family and it is very sad to see him go. I think we can all learn something from the things he did. Three words that I think describe Grandpa easily: love, family, strength. I love you Grandpa!

    Rosemary, John, Joel, Will, and the rest of the family;

    I just wanted to express my sympathy at this very hard time in your lives right now. You have a very wonderful and blessed family. Remember, life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.. Austin was a very wonderful man. He accomplished so much in his life, that you have to be proud of that and remember that god has a plan for everyone. It is such a heartache that his calling was now, but remember you will all be reunited one day in heaven. You will be able to dance and sing all day long. 🙂

    Remember to live well, laugh often, and love much!!

    Don’t be afraid to lean on someone, that is why god gave us shoulders. “Lean on me, when you are not strong, and I’ll be a friend, I’ll help you carry on..”

    Again, my thoughts and prayers are with you all.

    One of my favorite memories of my Grandpa Austin is when we were at the Dells Supper Club. He pulled me onto the dance floor and taught me how to polka. I was so nervous because I knew how good he was. Unfortunately he stepped on my feet quite a bit, but I learned. 🙂

    I love you and will miss you.

    My memory of my grandpa is just spending time with him in his time of need. We were all there for him. I think he really appreciated all we did for him.
