Nous t'offrons, ainsi qu'à ta famille, nos plus profondes et sincères sympathies à l'occasion du décès de Nicole avec qui nous avons travaillé au Conseil des Arts. De bons souvenirs demeurent: accueil chaleureux au chalet fleuri d'Otter Lake, bonne bouffe, parties de cartes nombreuses. Avec son sourire communicatif, elle transmettait son goût de la vie. Nous avons passé de très bons moments en votre compagnie.
Qu'elle repose en paix. Bon courage à vous tous.
Claire et Normand Nantel
