Condolences & Memories (2 entries)

  • I met Rose years ago at Bingo in Black River, she and her sister Bernice along with their dad were "our regular's" we called them...She was a good friend to my late aunty Beatrice Black and we became very fond of her, she was lovely woman, so soft spoken, and she spoke with compassion. I would like to offer my deepest condolences to the entire family on the loss of such a beautiful woman and I am very honoured to have been a friend to Rose. May she have a pleasant journey home to be with the others and may the good lord wrap his loving arms around her family. Rest Peacefully my friend amen Love Always Leah (Yak) - Posted by: Leah Fontaine (Friend) on: Apr 27, 2019

  • You were a very special, close and understanding friend. I remember our all-night visiting when we were close neighbors. The things I will truly miss, will be your stories and your craziness. It was a great pleasure working with you at the school. You were always involved in community gatherings and were a big support. You and Dianne were very knowledgeable with your love for the language. You were an inspiration to all who loved you, your family and friends. I am surely going to miss you coming to visit. Your at peace now and with your loved ones. Til we meet again my friend... - Posted by: Evelyn Kennedy (Close friend) on: Apr 27, 2019
