    My Deepest Condolences Anne-Marie, Dan, and Alexandra,
    I just heard about the sad news.
    May you cherish your fond memories of your mother and grandmother.
    I still remember when we visited each other when we were very young.  
    She was always a very kind person, a quality that is never forgotten. 
    Make you find peace in knowing that she is with your father now, and will always remain in your hearts, until you meet up with them both again.
