I will miss my beautiful grandmother and best friend, Mimi, forever.

I know Marie Therese since 1969 when my mother Marie M Gourmelon and her work together at the French Military Mission in Washington. For myself I work at
L'escargot with her husband M Pain then went to work at the French Treasury. She was always so happy and help a lot her husband at different restaurant. I was so surprised to learn she died when I came back in may from France. She always look so young and had a big smile. She did not look her age. And look much younger.

I did know her very well, but so enjoyed her big smile and graciousness.
Being invited to her home with the French conversation group was a
very special occasion.

While dancing with Marie-Thérèse in Nia class, I actually did not know her by name. I knew her by her million-watt smile and the enormous joy that emanated from within her small frame. We fellow dancers are greatly saddened to learn of her passing.
Que vôtre âme se repose en paix.

Marie-Therese, I will miss you. What vitality and discipline in all that you did - living life to its fullest. Enjoying the grandchildren. Always a big smile. Energetic. I remember our ski trip in Steamboat Springs, CO where you made a large pan of crème caramel for dessert. The best crème caramel I've ever had! And, our trip to Idaho where you out-hiked all of us! Then walking around Chinatown in S.F. in pursuit of the perfect Buddha during Henk and Gerard's Mountain Miglia antique car rally. What fun we had. Thirty years of good memories. We should have made more...
