    I’m thinking of all of you during this difficult time. I know you have lovely memories of your Mom, and in time these very memories will bring comfort and healing to your spirits.

    Every Christmas I put up an angel ornament that your mom gave me many, many years ago. This year as I put it up, I sent off special prayers for a very special lady. During our last visit, your mom and I reminisced about a road trip that she, Joanne and I took to Kelowna in 1979. We laughed about the lost(and found)wallet, and had lovely time.

    I will always remember her warm smile and gentle spirit. Be assured of my continued prayers.
    Anne-Marie Marchand

    Tom, Joanne, Ellen and Barry. If ever there was anyone prepared for “the other side”, it was your mother. She truly was an angel living on earth. May God be by her side throughout her next journey
