While I attended the ceremony online only, it was nice to 'see' some of you. Hugs to all. The grandaughters who spoke expressed well the essence of Matante Rita as I remember her. The references to the Bonville farm - especially the berries, the water pump, and the stone wall with mirrors brought back my own cherished childhood memories of times shared with your family. 💙

My dear, sweet, loving aunt Rita, you were always a kind and caring soul and I was so lucky to have had you as my godmother. Up to about 2 years ago, you would always remember to call me or send me a card for for my birthday. I am so thankful I kept the last voicemail message you left me and sang Bonne Fete. You will be greatly missed but I know you will be so happy to see uncle Lionel again. My deepest sympathy to the Forgues family and know there is now a brand new angel in heaven, who will be watching over all of you. XO

Mes sympathies à mes cousines/gardiennes, Lionel et vos familles. Perdre une mère c'est difficile et on la garde dans nos coeurs et nos vies pour toujours. Ma mémoire la plus forte de ma douce 'Matante Rita' c'est qu'elle était tellement travaillante, surtout dans son grand jardin, qui fournissait sa grande famille de légumes, fruits, et même de belles fleurs ! Mes parents Rita et Roger parlaient souvent de ses talents de jardinière et lui demandaient souvent des conseils. Je me rappelle aussi quand elle chantait dans les soirées et les guignolées de Noel. Qu'elle repose en paix et en joie, si bien méritées.

To all of Aunt Rita's (and late Uncle Lionel's) children and extended family. I was saddened to hear about her passing away. I have not seen Aunt Rita in years, but remember her as a kind and pleasant woman. I can still hear her distinctive voice and laughter. Please accept my sympathies on behalf of my wife Tracey and I.
Gaetan.

So sad to hear of Auntie Rita's passing. I have memories of visiting the farm when I was a little girl and everyone around the fire. Someone was playing the guitar. Dad (Rene) and uncle Roger (I think) were up dancing on the picnic table when it collapsed from under them. Everyone had a good laugh at that. Sending love from the west coast. xoxo Tara, Heather & Darlene
