Robert Matthieu, 82, visits his mother’s gravesite on Mother’s Day at St. Peter’s Cemetery in Lewiston. His mother, Juliette, is buried at a family plot with his grandmother, grandfather and aunt. After visiting his mother’s grave, Matthieu visited the graves of his wife and other grandmother, who are also buried at St. Peter’s. Matthieu says his mother has inspired him throughout his life. She raised him and his brother by herself, working two jobs to support them. “You always miss them,” Matthieu says. “It does not matter how long it’s been.” Andree Kehn/Sun Journal Buy this Photo
