    We are so sorry to hear of the passing of your mom Frances and dad Jack. When we moved into the cul-du-sac on Mission Springs in 1991, they became very special neighbours and surrogate grandparents to my children. They were such wonderful people and the best neighbours one
    could have. Always there to lend a hand. The memories will live on forever. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all. Cindy, Megan, Andrew and Allyson Brisebois
