Uncle Bill and cousins, sometimes out of great sadness comes joy- that was certainly true for the Babineau family in Virginia when my dad, Auntie Tess's brother Francis passed away three years ago. When Auntie Tess came to say goodbye to Francis, she and our cousin Ellen helped us cope with the sense of loss and grief, and in doing so re-established the strength of familial ties. Auntie Tess' notes and cards, phone calls, prayers and baked goods; all such lovely expressions of love reminded us that we are family and what that means. She was a sweet woman and we will always cherish her memory. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.

Uncle Bill and all our cousins : One of our greatest recent joys has included our relationship with the Densmore et al family. When we heard of the passing of sweet Aunt Tess , our eyes welled with tears , but quickly was replaced with smiles and Tess' voice that "it will be alright". When my father ( Tess' brother) Francis Babineau died three years ago, the kindness , encouragement and uplifting words from Tess , Ellen and the Densmore family was so helpful to us . All of us Babineau's in Virginia will truly miss Aunt Tess , her kind words , the telephone calls , the holiday and prayer cards ,VT maple syrup and her delicious bread ! She was truly one of life's treasures. Love to you all and know that your family in VA is with you. Jon , Beth , Luke , Michael ,Kathryn Babineau
