  4. Kathy & Gil says:

    Our sincere condolences. Mrs. Gagnon was a loving and kind person who cared deeply for her family and friends. She was always willing to listen to what was happening in your life and would offer support if needed. Mrs. Gagnon was a very gracious “lady” with a contagious smile who dressed beautifully. She will be missed by all who knew her however; our sorrow is lightened knowing that Nancy and Bob are now reunited into each others arms. Rest in peace Mrs. Gagnon and know that you will forever be in our hearts. With sincere sympathy.

    • Susan Gagnon says:

      Thank you so much for your kind words, Kathy and Gil. She enjoyed your company so much, you were always so thoughtful to her. She certainly will be missed.
      Bobby and Sue
