Dear Gary, Louise & Paul, Sue & Glen, and Brandon & Connor:
We are so very sorry to learn that Auntie Alma has passed. We extend our deepest sympathy to you for your loss. She was one very special lady, and I was privileged to call her My Favorite Auntie and Godmother. John and I have so many fond memories of happy times spent with her & Uncle Paul, as well as you cousins. The photos you posted sure captured what Auntie Alma was all about. She looks so happy spending time with her LeBlanc and Gaudet and Cole families. Even Felix and Zoe and Tanner had a piece of her heart. We know how joyous the New Brunswick parties were down here. I can only imagine the utopia up there as Uncle Paul and the rest of the family welcomed her to "The Big Card Table"! May your memories sustain you through this difficult time. Wishing you comfort and peace, and sending love and warm hugs.

Dear Gary, Louise & Paul, Susan & Glen , Brandon & Conner :

I am so sad to hear of the passing of your mother ( and grandmother). I regret that I am unable to attend her funeral service, but I will be thinking of her and of you all, over the next few days. She was so special to me as a youngster, and I never forgot that. I remember her as the epitome of love, generosity and kindness. Her soft sweet voice is one I will always remember. She spoke so fondly of you, her children and grandchildren and took such delight in recounting some of her favourite stories and memories of you all. She was such a delight to spend time with and observe her joy at all of the simplest things in life. May you all be at peace with all of your fond memories of her. Love and hugs to you all at this sad time.

Dear Gary, Louise, Susan & families
We are deeply saddened by your mother's passing and also that we cannot attend (due to travel health insurance issues). At least now, Alma is pain free and in a better place, maybe joining the card club.
This is the first time oncle Antoine misses a celebration of life for a sibling. If health and insurance allow, he wants to go see you all in 2019.
May the memories shared with your mom be a constant source of comfort. We always enjoyed Alma & Paul's visits to New-Brunswick and especially seeing her happiness at visiting with everyone. Her smile and gentle nature will always be lovingly remembered.
Our thoughts, prayers are with you all at this difficult time.
In memoriam, our family has made a donation to the NB Heart and Stroke Foundation (Canada).
Love to you all,
Oncle Antoine, cousins Paul, Pauline, André and their families.

Love, Roger (cousin) and Simonne Paulin, Moncton, New Brunswick
