I remember Taunt Simone when Adrienne and I Therese were in the hospital together, But I don't remember for what? Taunt Simone came into our room and told us to be quiet, because Adrienne and I were were talking. She then left the room but came back moments later and gave us some crayons and each a coloring book. We bacame very quiet after that.

Another vivid memory was when Taunt Simone wasn't feeling well at the hospital,(she was a nurse there,as you all know), and I was recovering from appendicts surgery and was allowed to go home, so she voulunteered to take me home in her little Hillman car(which Doug and Raymo bought from her and we used to go to school in it). She bound me up in blankets and put me in the back seat. When we left the hospital there is a corner that she had to manoever, but did not quite make it, as she was not feeling very good,the car tipped over on its side. Taunt Simone had passed out and I was all tied up in blankets.(but I managed to wiggle an arm out and wave out the window for help. I think I was about 10 or 11 at the time. Yes we ended getting help and my uncle Leo, Taunt Simone's brother went later and brought the car back up on its wheels. And a docter brought me and Taunt Simone home to my house and we were totally fine. I liked her in my own special way. See you in Heaven Taunt Simone....your niece Therese

We are so sorry for your lose. Your Mother, Auntie Simone, was also special to us. She was a "link' in our families and will be missed. We always heard of special events with you, her kids, and then proudly and with much joy, the special times with her grandchildren. You can be proud of your Mom/your Grandmother. Her love for you all was evident. She will live on in each of you. Remember and share the good times that you had with each other. Love from your cousins, Doug & Linda (Pelletier)
