Sincères condoléances à toute la famille. Je suis en retard de qq semaines mais il est du fond du coeur.

Vous avez gardé votre mère de nombreuses années!

J'avais une double parenté avec elle: cousine de ma maman et belle-soeur de mon papa.

Mon premier souvenir est sa maison à Saint-Georges de Beauce alors que qq-uns de vous tous
étiez nés.

Bon courage!

Please accept my sincere sympathy to the family of Marie. I knew her from Russell Park where she always had lunch with my mother Helen and Gary and Donna; I used to join them on Saturdays. Marie loved to talk about gardening, especially about the garden she planted at Russell Park and about her brother's garden in St-Georges! She was a beautiful person and I will miss her!

M. Roger et Mme Hélène Champagne, je vous offre mes sincères sympathies. Je suis contente d'avoir connu votre mère pendant une courte durée de 9 mois, elle était tellement intéressante! Je suis aussi contente de vous avoir rencontré à St-Georges. Je suis désolée d'avoir reçu les nouvelles de la mort de votre sœur qu'après les funérailles, j'y serais surement allée. Je sais que Marie est au ciel....
