Condolence & Memory Journal

To Albina's Little Family...Your Mom and mine, Jeannine Bouchard, were dearest little friends. She treasured their friendship that began while working for Mrs. Shaer and it lasted for many years. They enjoyed each other's company at Bingo too! I met your Mom and she truly is a treasure. Heaven surely rejoiced at her arrival. God bless your Mom and all of you...
