We are thinking and praying for Memere, my Dad, my Auntie Diane and Uncle Claude today. Memere lived a beautiful life and we will miss her. I'm sorry I cannot attend but we send our love from Australia.

I have been wearing the Paris Eiffel Tower pin that you gave me when I was a teenager. I hope to make it there someday.
