So sorry to hear of the passing of Aunt Denise. My mom and I send our condolences to all. We last visited her and uncle Bill in 2008. They were both generous with opening their home to visitors. I also have fond memories when we got together in Point Claire, many years ago now. Sending love to all.

Linda & Betty.

Bill, Deborah, Gary, Lorraine, Danny, and Nicholas. My sincere condolences on the loss of your wife and mother and grandma. She was a dear sister- in-law and kind friend to me. I have fond memories of going to Silouette on Donegani with her, and of her helping me untangle my French when I was taking a course at John Rennie High. Love to you all. My thoughts are with you. Hugs from Barbara.

I have a lot of fond memories of spending time as a kid with Aunt Denise, Uncle Bill, Danny, Lorraine, Gary and Debbie -- especially when we lived nearby in Pointe Claire. Their home always had a lot of fun things to do. It was great to go camping with them. Later, I really loved getting together at their home for family reunions. RIP Aunt Denise.

Dear Lorraine and Family,

Our thoughts and hearts are with you.

Losing a parent cuts so deep. Remembering the good times and good memories helps the healing begin.

Lorraine, you shared that you think of your Mom whenever you bake. It really shows, that the two of you are together, because you make the best cookies anywhere on the planet.

Much love and strength to all the Lea's,
Libby, Jimmy and Family
