Dear Louise and Rod and Mai,
It is with a heavy heart that I write this, as I just learned tonight of Andree's passing. I cannot imagine how you, and her husband and children are coping with such a loss. I have very fond memories of playing with Andree at your home on Borris Road and later in L'Orignal. Reading the messages here, it sounds like she was a remarkable woman who touched many people in her life, which must make you so proud. Please accept my most sincere condolences. I wish you courage and strength. Much love, Caprice

It is with great sadness that I write this message and impossible to come up with the right words to express my sympathy. Andree was a very special friend. We became friends in Grade four at PCPS. I remember going to Burlington, Vermont with Andree and Mr. and Mrs. MacDonald and had so much fun buying matching Nike shoes! We spent a lot of time together throughout our high school years and we were able to stay in contact on and off over the years. I spent last week looking over pictures and remembering a lot of great times. She was one of a kind and will be fondly remembered. My deepest sympathy to her dear family.
Love, Lori xo
