  1. I am so sorry and sad for the passing of Rose Marie. My heart goes out to my cousins Brian, Greg and Nanette! My prayers are with you all as well as all the rest of the extended family. The Lord knew what he was doing taking Rose Marie to be with her husband Bobby.
    This is about as bitter sweet as it gets.
    May the Lord be in the hearts of all of the family to help us through this time.

  2. My heart goes out to all of you. So so sad what has happened to loose one parent and then the other. I just can’t imagine. Your parents were great people and neibors. Growing up we had the best neighborhood a kid could ask for.
    So a little story to tell…I think… I wasn’t suppose to be around any horse’s when I was being watched for by Joy and Nanette. Needless to say the horse ran me over and they hid me at the Grumieaux house with ice packs, lol. So from then on I knew I could be safe somewhere from my Mom, lol. Lots of good memories in your household.
    I always loved your parents and family. My hearfelt condolences.

  3. So sorry for yet another great loss for your family. Thinking of you all with sympathy and prayers.

  4. We extend our deepest sympathy to the family of Rose Marie Grumieaux. She was a kind woman, faithful to the Lord.

  5. Nanette, Mel and family,
    So very sorry for the loss of your mother so soon after your father’s passing. May God bless all with peace, love and strength through this sad time.

  6. Nanette, Very sorry for your mother’s passing away. I imagine she and your dad are together right now, and forever. My sympathies to you and your family. Sincerely, Terri Denny

  7. Dear Brian, Greg, Annette & family. I am so sorry to learn about the passing of both your Dad & Mom. You have my deepest sympathies. They were always so nice to the children in our neighborhood, your Dad with his big smile, laughter & always welcoming, & your Mom who always made me feel at home & she was so easy to talk to. I got to know her best when Nannette was young & I would occasionally babysit. And, then there was Grampy – a delight! I hope your memories give you comfort through this difficult time & that it helps to know you are in the thoughts of many who had the good fortune of knowing your wonderful parents.
