Lorraine a toujours eu la délicatesse de venir me saluer lorsqu’elle était de passage à Amos, chose que j’ai grandement appréciée. Un don au nom de Lorraine Lacroix sera fait à la Fondation hospitalière d’Amos Inc. Mes plus sincères condoléances à toute la famille.

From the Art’s family, our most sincere condolences to Lorraine's family. A great and exceptional Lady left us but we wish her all the best on her last voyage. She was an incredible and affectionate Lady and we will certainly miss her. Our family will never forget her help and assistance as a fantastic neighbor when we arrived, in July 1969, for the first time to Lawson Road when we immigrated from Belgium and none of us spoke English and she just crossed the road and offered help in French and the bond of friendship was immediately established and remained through the years. We saw her raise a big family and also working very hard as very few would to bring the best to her family. And she gave the same love to her many grandchildren. We truly enjoyed her company and her colorful laughs. Bye Bye Lorraine.

Nos sympathies à la famille.
Monique, cousine-germaine de Paul-Émile, et son mari Gilles ont bien connu votre mère Lorraine.
Votre mère, fière et avenante épouse, a démontré les mêmes sentiments d'appartenance au village de Champlain que Paul-Émile: c'était à plusieurs étés où, venu avec son 'camper', son mari renouait avec la maison ancestrale bordée par notre grand fleuve et avec la propriétaire du lieu Madeleine Lacroix, frère du paternel Clément Lacroix et mère de Monique.

Madeleine représentait auprès de votre père l'unique personne à demeurer dans le patelin où Émilia Turcotte Lacroix a eu ses enfants et en le recevant elle lui permettait de revoir le Champlain de son enfance: l'été cette Émilia aimait y retourner et il l'accompagnait..

Il nous est arrivé lors d'un voyage en Ontario de notre couple d'avoir été reçus par vos parents à leur résidence. C'était lors d'un retour de dépôt de nos enfants au lieu de leur camp de vacances. C'est dire le lien de convivialité qui nous unissait.
