A "special thank you" to the exceptional team of Unit 500 at the Villa du Repos for your good care, your compassion and your presence with our mother during her stay with you. Many of you were surprised by her knowledge of multiplication tables!

The funeral will be videotaped and posted later in the afternoon on her obituary at www.salonfrenette.com. Interment will be in parish cemetery.
