    To all family members:
    May our memories always be fresh with wishes of gratitude for the unlimited hot cocoa, peanut butter and toast, never ending suppers, followed with mind testing conversations that my Aunt Noreen so lovingly prepared for us always. The quick and sincere laughter, followed by the warmest loving hugs, were the constant greetings whenever she was present.

    I am so thankful to have been blessed with such kindness on every visit with her; and to have been made to feel that caring for each other was just a simple and comfortable extension of her heart to mine.

    Her example was the gift, that always kept giving, and always accepted, all my presence could provide.
    May you rest, quietly in a eternal garden, contentedly, knowing you will live on through us all until we all join you again.
    Thank you Auntie Noreen, your essence will travel with me, always.

    Your nephew,
    Robert LaBrier

    Noreen and I corresponded often via email. She and I were politically aligned and relished each other’s support. We were good buddies. Every day I see something that I think “Noreen would like this!” Then I remember. I miss her a lot. The world has lost a major presence.
