  7. Carragh says:

    She let me call her mom, and even signed greeting cards that she gave me “Love, Ma and Pa Faucher”. Thank you for being part of my life, for giving me such great friends in your children, in-laws, nieces and nephews. Thank you for pre-cana cookies, and always making me feel at home at Pineview and Pendleton. I will miss you tremendously. Such a kind and beautiful woman inside and out. All of my love and sympathy to my Faucher and Wakeham families.
