Dear Jacques, Nicole, Ginette, Lynn and Lise. I just wanted you to know that your mother, ma tante, holds a very special place in my heart. When I was younger, much younger, my family would drive to Quebec from Fredericton and would always stop in for a visit and stay at your home. My sisters Rita , Patricia and I were always happy to stay with your family and were always treated with such kindness. My father, Antonin and my mother, Doris loved your mother and father very much. Know that Barry and I are keeping you in our prayers and we will see you Monday. Marie Gabrielle wants me to pass on her condolences as well. Blessings. I have some photos of your mom and Ginette in Bas Caraquet but ...cannot seem to attach them. See you Monday. Love, Carole LindaRead more

Hi Ginette,
It's been a long time since I've seen you.
I am sorry about your mother. It's tough to lose your mother no matter what the age.
She looks like she was a kind and happy lady.
I hope you find some comfort and please take care of yourself.

She was blessed with wonderful family, but now she is happy in the arms of her love.
Will miss her quiet smile at trivia nights...
Our thoughts and prayers are with you !
