I send our deepest sympathy to the Dufrene Family. We are so very sorry to hear about the passing of Mr. Gilly. He was such a loving, caring man. It is obvious that those virtues have been passed down to his children and grandchildren. He lives through all of you. It is a blessing to have known him and Ms. Sis and of course all of you! May you find comfort in knowing your parents/grandparents are together in the presence of the Lord. God bless all of you during this Holy Season. Love and Prayers, Rita Bertolino and Rachel Bourgeois

My dearest Cindy and family. God will be with you all not only today, but always. I don't know all of the family personally, but feel I do from my conversations with Cindy. I don't think there is another family on this earth, as close and caring as yours. Remember to good times (and from what I have been told, there are a multitude of them), and you will never be sad. Bless everyone of you today and always. Jim and Shari
