  1. Our sympathies to you, Norman and yours and to the rest of the family. Our thoughts are with you. Brigitte and Jacques, Rachel and Leandre.

  2. So sorry to hear your mom passed away and seeing the lost of Charles.
    They were Tim Horton friends and we would see each other on Saturday nights.
    I went to visit her at la Villa until she said she did not want any visitors.
    She was the loveliest of a lady.

  3. Diana was a bright spot in my early life and someone who I count myself so fortunate to have known. The mother of my earliest and best friends, i just can’t imagine anyone ever having a bad word to share about her. A sharp mind, a good heart and a religious follower. She was all that was good in a person. I will always think of her fondly. her face unmistakable, a giant among the good people who helped raise me. She appreciated the people around her but I think she was more appreciated for the great person she was. Rest in Peace Diana. You’ve earned your place in eternal life as all of those years of catholic mass had promised. You were a good one not easily forgotten.

  4. Mes sincères condoléances à Normand.
    Repose toi bien ma chère cousine.

  5. Mes plus sincères condoléances à toi Léandre et la famille Poirier. Vous êtes dans mes prières.
    Repose en paix Diana.

  6. Marraine, rest in peace.
    The memories we shared, the bond we held will forever be part of my heart . Fly high with the angels, until we meet again.
    My deepest condolences to Norm, Bonnie, Nancy, Marc, Mike, Mon oncle Leandre, ma tante Elisabeth and to all who loved this beautiful soul.
    I cannot be there to say goodbye to…but I will be there in spirit and love.

  7. Sorry for your loss Norm . Been a tough year , hang in. Thoughts are with you . J & K
