Condolences & Memories (6 entries)

  • My sincere condolences to the family of our dear cousin, Germaine and all her brothers and sisters, especially Louis, Claire, Michel, Lucienne and Claude whom I have known better. Sorry for not reacting sooner (I have just heard of Germaine's passing). Allow me and all the cousins Desrosiers to join you all and sympathize with you on the passing of your sweet mother, Germaine, who was such a happy and friendly person, loved by everyone. - Posted by: Joseph-Ambroise (Jos) Desrosiers (Cousin) on: Jul 23, 2019

  • Sorry to hear about your Mom. RIP beautiful lady. - Posted by: Diane Lansard Desrochers (Friend and Neighbor ) on: Jul 21, 2019

  • Just want to send my sincere condolences to the entire Rivard family. I have good memories of going down to the farm in a nova with my parents to visit and I was friends with their daughter Faye. All I have to say is heaven has indeed gained another angel. She’s probably sitting up there with her husband Sam and having a good conversation with my mom and dad and the many others. 🌹 - Posted by: Charlene Kotowicz (Friend ) on: Jul 18, 2019
