Dear Yoko, Patrick and family,
One never is prepared for how very difficult it is to lose someone you love until it happens.
May you find strength in the love and support of all those around you. We were so blessed to have met your sweet mom whom we loved deeply..
Our deepest condolences,

We are really sorry to learn the passing of Toshie Obaachan. We have many fond memories of her kindness and gentle gestures. Our children, Yuko and Alex, remember and cherish the moments spent together at the cottage in Mont Tremblant. When she visited us, it was a great pleasure to hear her cheerful voice. She was always positive and enjoyed life with a glass in her hand.
Rest in peace Obaachan. 安らかにお眠りください。

Dear Yoko,
We are sorry that we will not be able to attend the service in Montréal but we will be there in thought. You and your maman are very dear friends going back a very long time. When I was in Montréal last summer, I had the privilege to spend time with you both. I will never forget your mom's smile and warm embrace. She was a very special maman and I will miss her. dearly.
With our sincere sympathy to you and your family,
Marie and Don . . .
