Online Condolences


  1. I was so sorry to hear of Lizzie’s passing. I always looked forward to seeing and chatting with her at your Christmas Eve open houses. She was so full of energy. I always felt so welcomed.

    I know that Gabe was deeply saddened by her passing as well.

    Our love and deepest condolences to you all.

  2. With deepest sympathy and condolences. Our prayers are with you and your family.

  3. May the sympathy and love of others and Gods words found in 2 Corinthians 1:2-4 give you the comfort you need at this time and remember the hope we have in the fulfillment of His promise found in John 5 : 28. With my sincere and deepest condolences.

  4. Examine Moses he had an assignment to talk to Pharaoh and he was concerned about what might happen if Pharaoh refused to believed him. Moses proceeded to do as Jehovah had commanded. Rather than torture himself with frightening thoughts of what might happen when he confronted Pharaoh, Moses did just so. If he had allowed anxieties to take over, these could well have weakened the faith and boldness needed to carry out his assignment. Moses’ balanced way of tackling his assignment is an example of what the apostle Paul called soundness of mind. If Moses had not exercised soundness of mind, he could easily have become so overwhelmed by the enormity of his assignment that he would probably not have accepted it.

  5. To Mark, Adele, Nic, Elisabeth, Jack and Katherine,
    The Weiner family would like to extend our deepest sympathy on the passing of your Mom and Grandma. We enjoyed her company whenever we were at your home for the holidays and a milestone occasion for one of the children I think…at least for me…not sure about Mark…I am going to miss seeing Liz taking her summer walks in the neighborhood and we would always stop and chat. She will be missed, but I know that heaven has one more angel looking out for all of us. Rest in Peace Liz.
    Love , Mark, Joann, Ben, and Hannah

  6. Lucien, Anthony, Adela and the whole family our deepest condolences to you all. Will always remember the happy times with her, her outgoing personality and her beautiful smile.

    Tim and Terry (Landry) Legault

  7. My love to all of you. ??

  8. Lucien,

    Your Mom was one of 13? From what you mention of her and the several times we met her, she was one in a million.

    Our lives are fuller from having met her and you.

    May she–and all her family, her friends, with the many lives she enriched–be at peace with this passing until we are together again in each other’s gentle company.

    Sending Love,
    Col & Deb

  9. Delia and family I am sorry for the passing of your mom. She was a special kind of lady and will be missed by many.

  10. So sad to hear about your Mom. May she RIP, Aunt Lizzy…

  11. From the time I heard from brother, Michael, that she had passed, her smiling face has been in my thoughts. How wonderful that she spent her life in the same house with her family which was ever changing. That she cared for our Mamere’, too, is typical of her inclination to treat all as family. Hugs to all of you.

  12. I will always remember Aunt Liz as a sweet and humorous lady.
    Cherrilynn, Michael Jr. and I pray that the Lord will comfort the family and all who knew her during this difficult time.

  13. Adele and family, so very sorry for your loss. My love and prayers are with you.

  14. To the Felag and Chauvin family~ My deepest most sincere condolences to all of you on the loss of your sweet Memere…. I can’t find the words to express my sadness upon hearing the news of Lizzie’s enterance into heaven. She was one of the sweetest most loving people I have ever met. We were all so blessed to be in her presence. She treated all of us like part of the family and always made sure everyone around her knew they meant something to her. Thank you for sharing such an extraordinary woman with us. I will never forget her kindness.. her smile….. and that amazing sense of humor… I will continue to pray for all of your broken heart, That you can find peace and comfort in the knowledge that she watches you now from the heavens reunited
    with her beloved Lucien and is amongst the choirs of angels and saints.
    A farewell Poem?

    I am standing upon the seashore.
    A ship at my side spreads her white sails to the morning breeze and starts for the blue ocean.
    She is an object of beauty and strength.
    I stand and watch her until at length she hangs like a speck of white cloud just where the sea and sky come to mingle with each other.
    Then, someone at my side says;
    “There, she is gone!”
    “Gone where?”
    Gone from my sight. That is all.
    She is just as large in mast and hull and spar as she was when she left my side and she is just as able to bear her load of living freight to her destined port.
    Her diminished size is in me, not in her.
    And just at the moment when someone at my side says, “There, she is gone!”
    There are other eyes watching her coming, and other voices ready to take up the glad shout;
    “Here she comes!”

    And that is dying.

  15. She seemed to be at every event for Katie. She seemed so patient! Sweet lady. Rest In Peace Lizzie.
