Cher Jeannot, Lise et sa famille, Carole, Marc, Ginette et vos enfants,

Que les plus beaux souvenirs avec votre Grand-Maman soient une belle source de réconfort. Mme Gervais faisait partie de la famille des Perreault et sa présence, sa compagnie étaient pour moi une belle partie de nos rencontres de famille. Je vous aime et je penses à vous tous.

Sincères condoléances...
