Ginette and I wish to offer our sincere condolences to Cécile's family and friends including our brother Paul and the girls Lynda, Pauline and Susie and their partners. Our fond memories (as Cécile would call them) are numerous and include visits to Paul and Cecile's home at Christmas. Their home was always filled with warmth and love. We also reflect warmly on the wonderful meals that Cécile and Paul would offer us during our trips to Lewiston and Sabattus. We particularly enjoyed the delicious lobster rolls served by Cécile. We also have wonderful memories of the family gatherings at Ray & Terry’s home in Portland during Ginette and my trips to Maine in the summertime. We also cherish Paul & Cécile’s visits to our homes Québec. We particularly remember how Cécile and Ginette would enjoy going shopping for gifts for the girls during their trip’s to Québec.
We wish we could have been there with you today at the service to share in the love and memories provided by friends and family.
Finally, we also wish to thank the girls for all the support they've lovingly provided to Paul during these most trying times.
Rest assured that we will keep you all in our thoughts and prayers.

Bob & Ginette

Dear Mr. Parent, Linda, Pauline, Sue and family,
I wanted to send my sincere condolences to you on your loss. I have so many wonderful memories of growing up on Morse Ave with your family. You girls always knew how to tease your Mom and always kept her smiling for sure! Mr. Parent, you were a wonderful and caring husband to Cecile! I will keep you in my prayers that God would comfort you and give you His peace.
