So sorry to hear about the passing of you Mom. She was always so friendly and full of life. We always felt at ease around her as she made one feel so comfortable when she met you. There certainly will be a hole left in Ft Sask with both Gamaches gone from the Town they help build. May God continue to bless the Gamache family as the legacy continues.

It is with a very heavy heart that I heard of Lena’s death. She was a wonderful, beautiful gracious lady who treated Andy’s family like her own. She will be greatly missed.
