I attended Mme Alice's funeral ceremony this morning: very moving and beautiful. She was a gorgeous lady inside and out. She was a source of inspiration for me a fellow warrior. Her strength, her faith, kindness and joie de vivre were amazing. She made a loving and lasting impact on so many people. May she rest in peace now finally painfree and watch over Omer and their lovely family. I will miss her dearly and will carry her sweet memory in my heart. Sincere condolences to all her loved ones: family and friends. God bless!

My deepest sympathies to you Omer and your children and their families. Alice was such a nice lady, she was always so nice to us when you came to visit your parents in PEI and me and the rest of the neighborhood kids would always go over to see you guys. My thoughts and prayers are with you and the family. Alice is now flying with the angels and free of pain so may that thought comfort you at this very sad time.

Mary and Ron met Alice and Omer on the Star Princess June 17 to 24, 1996. We cruised from Seward, Alaska to Vancouver, British Columbia. Alice and Omer at 15 Patrick Drive in AURORA lived about the length of the ship from us at 35 Glass Drive yet we met on a cruise in Alaska. We enjoyed our trip with them and have crossed paths many times in the AURORA area over the last twenty plus years.

When Alice walked the dog around the block she would look up and smile and wave. When l was outside we would chat and when l couldnt get out l would be sitting by the window she would still smile and wave making me still feel like part of the community. Thank you Alice. My condolence to you Omer and your family on your loss of your loved one.

Rest in peace, tu seras toujours dans nos pensées.

My sincere condolences to the entire family.

I have many fond memories of your Mom, Nicole, and how welcoming she always was to us at your place in elementary and high school. I also remember that she spoiled me at the hospital when my sister was born. She gave me a special tour of the nursery, I got to “help” with a bath and she gave me a diaper for my doll! Talk about going above and beyond.

Whenever I would run into her in later years she would always proudly give me the updates on her cherished children and grandchildren.

We were all privileged to know Mme. Arsenault.

We are so very sorry for your loss. We first met Alice and Omer a few years ago on a Mediterranean cruise and have fond memories of the many hours we spent with them, both on that cruise and in the years since. Lunches and visits to their home in Aurora where we were always welcome even when we dropped in unannounced. On our fridge there is a little magnet that Alice gave us as a memento of time spent together on the beautiful island of Crete where she introduced us to Greek yogurt topped with honey. . Alice was a lovely lady and we will miss her. Rest in Peace Alice. No more pain.

I had the pleasure of working with Alice for quite a few years at York County Hospital. Her care and understanding of needs for others was excellent. That smile and twinkle in her eyes tells it all. We did have lots of laughs.

Alice will be missed so much. After 45 years of friendship, it is difficult to believe she is gone. We are thankful for all the memories, the jokes, laughter and sharing the ups and downs of our lives.
To Omer, Rick, Nicole and their families, we extend our heartful condolences.
