Famille Farmer

Je suis désolé d'entendre de ces tristes nouvelles. Je suis le petit fils de Léo Farmer et quand on perd un membre de la famille ça fait toujours mal. J'ai eu la chance de rencontrer mon grand oncle aux funérailles de ma grand-mère Laurette Farmer et j'ai eu une bonne première impression. À toute la famille Farmer j'aimerais offrir mes plus sincères condoléances.
