Dear Grandma, Mom, Jackie:
When we think of your time here with us, we think of your life well lived and the pieces of yourself that you have given us. You spent 87 years being loved by the love of your life (Roy Track), four siblings (Gerald, Lorraine, Richard and Alice), four children (Lynn, Gary, Bruce and Brian,) four grandchildren (Craig, Ryan, Jessica and Melissa), and three great-grandchildren (Arianna, Owen and Marissa ).
As we travel down memory lane, we think about the other things you loved most: traveling the world (a piece that your grandchildren all took from you), birds, jewelry and speedy cars (a piece you got from your own Pepere Lussier). We also think about your many talents; you could sew and crochet anything and used that talent to ensure that we all had beautiful, colourful and warm afghans made with love. We can all close our eyes and picture our favourite sweaters, dresses, even matching outfits for our dolls and the most perfect finishings a young girl could dream of in a doll house. All that came with love from your hands. You made every accomplishment, big or small, feel important. We all knew that you were proud of us, that you loved us dearly and each in a different way.
We recollect your enviable green thumb – in particular, the beautiful rose bushes in front of the house on Queen Street. We will surely never pass a rose that doesn’t make us think of you. Everyone who came to that home immediately felt welcome and cared for. When you were the hostess, no one was left wanting for anything. You truly knew how to throw a celebration BBQ or how to put on a Christmas dinner. You set a lovely table at which many family and friends learned the proper use for each piece of cutlery and a proper table setting. It was the same dining room in which we fondly remember decorating Christmas cookies under your supervision.
You were an amazing French teacher, surely remembered by all your students for your high heels and high expectations. We will keep walking down memory lane, as that is where we get to see you now.
Je t’aime. Au revoir.
