To Rachel, Roger, Dolores, Louis and Breault Family. I offer my prayers and my sympathy for your loss.
Francoise and I go back 40 years. I admired Francoise for the steadfast faith and inner strength she maintained throughout her life in times of trials and tribulations. Her love for healing prayer, the Rosary and her love for knitting. May she now rest in peace.
