Condolences & Memories (4 entries)

  • Condolences to the family for your loss. We both regret being unable to attend the celebration of life. - Posted by: Bob and Louise Cappan (Friend) on: Jan 01, 2020

  • Our deepest condolences to everyone, especially our Grandma Marie. She was such a genuinely kind woman with a contagious laugh. I remember a kitchen full of love. Adults gathered around the table, toys scattered everywhere and kids playing in cupboards. So much love in that tiny kitchen. She will be terribly missed. - Posted by: Paddy, Kascidy, Daniel (grandchildren ) on: Dec 31, 2019

  • Alma always said hi to me and thanked me for her special Bingo card of 1 and 11 in the corner. Always a winner! My sympathy to her family! Miss you Alma! - Posted by: kathy veroneau (friend) on: Dec 30, 2019

  • My condolences to the entire family. I remember Mrs. Berthelet as such a strong woman, tiny little thing that worked so hard for her children. It seems as though there was always a Berthelet child to play with in the neighbourhood. And I will always remember her standing at her open door, calling her children in for a meal. I will always smile when I think of her. Our parents always leave us too soon, no matter what their age. - Posted by: Annette Duguay (Friend of Marie & Danny) on: Dec 29, 2019
