Mrs. Sirois was one of the classiest ladies in Presque Isle. And not only was she classy, she was so kind. I looked forward to having a chat with her every time I went to the library where we would probably be louder than we should have been because we were often laughing. She also took care of me when I was a small child and she was unfailingly warm and welcoming. The world will be a little less gracious without her presence.

Hi Karyn So sorry to hear of your mothers passing. I know this must be a difficult time for you and I want you to know that I will be here whenever you need me, when you are ready. I know words are inadequate, but please believe I think of you every day and love you very much.
