    Aunt Rusie, you were such an amazing person. You were always there when needed and filled so many roles for so many of us, whether it be a mother, grandmother, or sister. I was blessed to have had you in my life. You will truly be missed. Always in my heart.

    I am so sorry for your loss and hope that you can take comfort in knowing she is no longer suffering and is in the Kingdom of Heaven with The Lord. I lost my mother over 4 years ago so I know the pain that you feel and if there is anything I could do for you please don't hesitate to ask. And once again my deepest sympathies to the Sharratt , Provencher , and Gore families
