There are no words to describe the love and warmth that accompanies the unconditional acceptance of a family that is not of one’s birth. There are even fewer to describe the depth of grief and emotion felt upon the passing of one so caring and who is loved so deeply by so many. Mémère Beaulieu’s smile, hugs, humility, and commitment to family are indelible blessings on each of us and our family. I miss you and will look for strength in each and every memory. Thank you for welcoming me into your family, and for serving as the strong and caring role model for the woman who accepted me into her heart and whom I love without bounds.
