I was saddened to hear about your passing Fern. I will miss your infectious laugh, your beautiful smile and the stories you would share with me over tea. Even though the distance had made it difficult to visit with you, know that you were, have and always will be in my thoughts and prayers.
To Chantal, Johanne and JC, I would like to express my deepest sympathies to you and your family.
Rest in Peace my friend. I will miss you and keep your family in my prayers.

You always held a special place in my heart and you always will. From the day we first met you took me in as one of your own. You gave me love and care and made me feel like I was something special in this world even when I didn't believe it myself. With your kind heart and generous spirit it was easy to love you so much. You are, and always will be an angel to me. I will remember you always. May God grant you peace until we meet again. Love you Mom xox
