    I met Elmire a couple of times when she came to Montreal. She was a fascinating and interesting person to talk to. She will truly be missed. My deepest condolences.

    My sincere condolences on the passing of Miss Petit. She lived down the street from me on Hopkins Street. I would take her barrels in on rubbish day and we would talk about different things going on. She was a delightful, sweet woman and I am glad I got the chance to know her.

Send your condolences.
