    Germaine’s picture reminded me of the bright and caring individual she was. She glowed with happiness and intelligence. It was a special pleasure to meet her and enjoy her company. We will miss her cheery personality as of course many will. Her loss is a huge void for you and your family. We were honoured to know her.

  3. Elizabeth and William Devlin :

    Our heartfelt condolences, Frank! We’ll certainly miss Germaine since she was always such a dear and caring person. In Beth’s words, “Germaine was always so concerned about me and I’m going to miss her terribly!” Remember Frank, there’s a season for everything under heaven, a time for birth and dying, and a time for letting go and living each moment in hope. Our prayers are with you and your dearly-beloved now this week-end and always. Masses and prayers are being offered at South Campus and Holy Spirit Parish and your own home Pius X and among the Legionaries there! Germaine’s life has been fulfilled and she rejoices forever in The Lord! Love, Elizabeth & Bill

    God grant us the serenity
    To accept the things I cannot change,
    The courage to change the things I can,
    And the wisdom to know the difference.

  6. I was most saddened to read of Germaine’s passing and wish to extend my sincere condolences to you Frank and the family. Germaine was a wonderful person, kind, thoughtful, with a quiet humour and a great co-worker. My thoughts are with you at this time.

  7. Sometimes it helps a little
    to know that friends are there. . .
    Sometimes it helps a little
    to know how much they care. . .

    And so this heartfelt message comes
    to show in some small way
    That sympathy and friendship
    are there with you today.

    With much love,
