Deepest condolences to Kevin, Brain & families. My late husband, Doug and I farmed your Dad's land for about 5 years in 2002. I'll never forget that when we went to visit, you'd have to call first so Gisele could keep the dogs contained, we told her they were just burly teddy bears, but she didn't want anyone getting bite!! She was a hell of a cook, loved her flowers, garden and of course, her BOYS and GRANDCHILDREN!! She was a very special Lady. May all your cherished memories keep her close to your hearts as you carry on with life, she will always be with you in spirit and she will be missed by many!!! Chris Potrebenko
Our sincere condolences to Kevin and Brian and extended family. I first met your Mom when she worked at the hospital in the early 1960's. Although we lost contact when I moved to Australia we reconnected again about 15 years ago. She has been a wonderful friend. So sorry for your loss. I have been phoning her and was wondering what was happening when there wasn't an answer. Rhueban and Gwen Fletcher firstname.lastname@example.org
In loving memory of my wonderful sister Gisèle The passage of life marks times when you have to know how to say goodbye, to those you love. The caress of the wind carries their voice and the sweet note leaves in our hearts the sound of their love. Thérèse Paré
