Dear Linda,
How sad I was to hear of your father's passing. I hold you, your mom and your family in my heart and in my prayers as you look to God for comfort. He knows your heart and collects your tears. Sending much love...

"THE LORD IS MY SHEPERD; I SHALL NOT WANT,
HE MAKES ME LIE DOWN IN GREEN PASTURES,
HE LEADS ME BESIDE STILL WATERS,
HE RESTORES MY SOUL....Psalm 23:1-3

Linda, I am so very sorry for your loss and am praying for you, your mom Estelle and the family. May the Lord spread his wings of comfort out broad to allow you all shelter from this storm and a place of His divine peace and rest. You are a very beloved daughter of your parents and your eternal Father, and loved by us all at LifeCentre. xo

Psalm 91: 1-4
1 He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High
will abide in the shadow of the Almighty.
2 I will say[a] to the Lord, “My refuge and my fortress,
my God, in whom I trust.”
3 For he will deliver you from the snare of the fowler
and from the deadly pestilence.
4 He will cover you with his pinions,
and under his wings you will find refuge;
his faithfulness is a shield and buckler.

Dear Estelle and Family,
Please accept my sincere condolences over the loss of Lawrence. I have many fond memories from the time he had his garage on Eleventh Street into his years of retirement. I know that he fought poor health over the course of the past couple of years. And I know also that he had a loving family to be with him and support him right up to his time of death.
May God bless you all with His comfort at this time and in the days ahead.

C'est avec une immense tristesse que notre cher ami Laurent nous a quitté.

Nous savons tous que la vie s'arrête un jour mais laissez le temps appaiser votre chagrin. Il restera à jamais vivant dans vos coeurs, on sait que ta présence et celle de tes enfants près de lui dans la maladie lui a été précieuse.

Nous garderons de très bons souvenirs de lui lors de nos rencontres en camping, en Floride ou pour prendre un bon café.

Nous t'offrons nos condoléances les plus sincères et sache que nous sommes là pour toi!

Amicalement,
Léo-Paul et Huguette Lacelle
