    Pat and family. Thoughts and prayers are sent to you at 5his time. You have been so fortunate to have had your mother all of these years. Still you will miss her and feel that sense of being alone without parents. She was remarkable in her widowed life.

  2. Cecilia was a good friend and neighbour to my late mother Olga Weinmaster for more than 60 years. We always admired Cecilia’s energy and spirit and the frequent gifts of fresh warm baking. We hope that good memories of her life will ease the pain of her loss. She was a beautiful lady.

  3. Pat. I was saddened to hear of your mother’s passing. It brought back vivid memories of your family coming down the right side of St. Bernards every Sunday and how beautiful your mother always looked. It is always very hard to lose a parent – no matter their age or our age. My sincere sympathies to you and your family.

    To Patrick and the entire Ancelin family:
    My sincere condolences. My sister Flora in Calgary just notified me in San Antonio Texas of the sad news. I was so saddened by the loss of your father years ago and now your mother. They were good friends to my dad Felix and my mother Helene.

    Again, our sincere and deepest condolences
