General and Mrs Jean Dabros, my sincere condolensces to both of you and to your entire family, both immediate and extended. Like my own mother, whom I lost on Valentine's Day 2017, she seems to have been a beautiful person inside and out, and like Maman, I am sure she will be very fondly remembered, and missed, for exactly that.
