My deepest sympathy to the family of Mrs. Florence Badeaux.
My mother was Marie Louise Rivette from Pecaniere and was kin to the Badeaux family. My father Frances Regis Moreaus grandmother was Matilde Lalonde married to Alexis Moreau.
I was honored to sing for her sons funeral a week ago, and am also honored to be able to do her funeral also. It is never easy to lose loved ones, especially your mother. I buried my only sister yesterday. May they all rest in the arms of Our Lord Jesus. Organist, Phyllis Simar joins me in expressing our deepest sympathy to all of you. God Bless. Ron

My deepest sympathy to everyone in Mrs. Badeauxs family and especially to my classmates, Gene and Denise. We lived next door to the Badeauxs when I was growing up in Pecaniere and I have fond memories of them. God Bless Mrs. Badeaux, may she rest in peace.
