To each and everyone of Helene’s family members, and the Godin family, sending my most heartfelt condolences. Losing a mother is like no other feeling. I lived it in June. Am sure, like my mom, she has blessed you all with precious memories and laughter. When i think of her, i smile automatically. That says alot. Leave yourselves open to feel her presence with you always. She will never leave her babies. Stay strong and together like she loves you to be. RIP grande dame. We will miss you. xoxo

Sending hugs and love to all the family. She was such a beautiful woman inside and out. Even though we couldn't speak French with her, she always tried to chat with me, Cameron & Meagan . She challenged Gary to dig deep for his French words too.!! Her willingness to accept unexpected company with a smile, her home was always open to a kitchen FULL of food and laughs to share. Her sense of humour was adorable. She loved her family with all her heart.
So lucky to have known her.
Godspeed Memere. Rest in peace.
Love, The McRae's XOX
