Melissa, David and Mike, Mrs. Bourque a/k/a Ms Poulet a/k/a Mamaw Bourque was a childhood neighbor of mine whom I respected and admired since a young age. She was the sweetest 'older' lady I knew. Sorry I can't be at her funeral; but, my hearts and prayers go out to you.... Love you.

Indeed an extremely considerate and kind neighbor from my high school years and later when she became my sister's Mother-in-Law---unmatched in generosity and friendliness. All loving memories of her life as she out-lived her husband, my parents, her first son and his wife (my sister Joyce).
