Dr. Marie Conceptia Maignan Girault left a message on January 6, 2021:
My father was one of a kind. He was sophisticated and had a lot of class. He was a mysterious man. Looking into his eyes happy, sad, or angry you knew of his journey. He was a quiet man who did not know any other way but what his past had reared into him.
He taught us how to survive and for those of us who embraced it, he protected us the only way he knew how- from behind the scenes. A fugitive of his past, he dared not take the lead but left that up to my mother- for if he had to make things “right”, you would truly see what was in his heart. Every man has a legacy, His coming to this country 51 years ago, he left behind his trade, his siblings, and his culture. Today time he leaves behind five children and the spirit of one....four moms, one dad, five recipients of bachelor degrees, three masters, one doctorate, a nurse, three teachers, one banker, one engineer, one securities specialist, two contractors, two seamstresses, three cooks....I could go on with the tasks that he had to endure in order to save a penny and make ends meet. All of these tasks by simply watching, we learned ourselves and later employed in our own lives and families. Thanks to my father, I can stitch a blind hem, tailor a collard shirt, lay sheet rock, sing Ave Maria, be patient when things don’t go my way, and understanding when others do me wrong. I love you Papi. I love you dearly!
