Francine, Jeff and the Girls,
Although we haven't seen each other in a while, I still carry fond memories of my childhood on Carleton Street. Easter "glissants" is one of my best with your dad, mom, grandma. This was my second home if I may say. Your mom and dad were always ready to do all for you Francine, you were a lucky girl. My memories will always be a part of my life, as your mom, dad and grandma were. My sincere condolences to you. Knowing that your mom is with her LOVER, know that they will look over you and will always be there.
Dominique "Dodo"

Chers Francine, Jeffrey, Genevieve et Sophie,
Il n'y a pas de mots pour exprimer à quel point je suis attristée par la dure perte de ta mere, belle-maman, grand-maman. Rhea avait un gros coeur, mais quand ton père est decédé, son coeur fut brisé. Je crois sincèrement qu’aujourd’hui, elle est heureuse d’etre maintenant avec “Lover”. Que les souvenirs chers à ton coeur soient une source de consolation durant ces pénibles moments. Je la garde dans mes prières et mes pensées. Elle a été une bonne amie. Mes plus sincères sympathies à vous tous.

So sorry to read of your Mom’s passing Francine! I so enjoyed working with Rhéa! Rhéa always had a smile and her laugh was infectious! Oh the stories I would hear from those cable girls. Please accept my deepest condolences to you and your family Francine!
