This is Dianne again, I wish to offer my deepest condolences to Sadie's brother Henry. I omitted to do so in my last sign guest book to the immediate family. I can only imagine how difficult it is to lose one's sibling 'cause I don't have one. God bless you!!!!

Hi to all of you....this is Dianne Hiscox (Paquette). I wanted to tell you how sorry I am that your Mom passed away. I have many good memories of your Mom. She was a second mother to me when I was young. I've been thinking about all of you and your Mom in the passed year, so I decided to look up if I could find your Mom online. Am very sad to have found that she died so recently. Prayers are sent your way and hugs to you all.

Ron, Zenaida and family may you take comfort and peace with family and friends during this difficult time as you celebrate, grieve and remember Sadie - mother, grandmother and friend. I was so glad to have met her and know that she had an incredible positive influence on each of you - may that continue forever!

Please accept our sincerest condolences. Cousin Sadie was the most lovable and caring person who shared her love and fabulous sense of humour with all who knew her. It was an honour and a priviledge to know her.
We will miss her very much.

Our condolences to the family on the loss of your beloved mother and grandmother. We met her only recently but were deeply impressed by her warm, sweet nature. Even when gravely ill she always tried politely to ask about others, and thanked everyone for the smallest gesture.. We are sure that she will be greatly missed by many. Mary and Nizar Sultan
