Condolences & Memories (2 entries)

  • Mom, I miss you, I hope all is good up there. If you're busy, that’s ok, I thought I leave you a message. I just wanted to say, I’m sorry for not being a perfect son. When I told you that I was sorry, and if you could forgive me, you said that there was nothing to forgive, and sad, my precious precious son, there is nothing to forgive, I love you I love you I love you. After you said that, I hit bottom. I truly miss you. - Posted by: Bob Montpetit (Son) on: Dec 04, 2020

  • Our family will be forever grateful to Mrs. Montpetit for her consideration and kindness towards our father, Jack Shuttleworth, in 2004 when he was at the St. Boniface Hospital. She brought him communion and would stay to visit. He came to look forward to her visits. She was a very special lady. - Posted by: Teri Sharman (Acquaintance) on: Feb 02, 2006
