    Your mother was incredible especially balancing work, socializing and raising 9 children. “A Mother is not a person to lean on, but a person to make leaning unnecessary” She raised you all to become individuals and independent
    Although you are each unique you share One Heart “The Lavoie Heart”
    She was spunky feisty practical warm Welcoming active…loved to dance She had a full beautiful life! And she taught me how to sew !! HUGS
