Rachal, Robert, Angela & Muzette,

I am so sorry to hear of your mothers passing. She raised a wonderful family. As you know, I room & boarded at your parent's home for many years while I was teaching at Dunseith High School. She took care of me as her own.
I will never forget her. God Bless!

Dear Angela,Robert,Rachel,Muzette, and families, I remember the firt time I visited your home in Dunseith with Angela. Your Mother was ironing and when she started talking to Angela and Grandma Rebecca Cote,I couldn't understand a word anyone said. I soon realized they were speaking French! You are all in my prayers as you walk through these difficult days .....it's bitter/sweet with memories flooding back of the good life you lived with such loving parents! May God bless you all, Margaret (Metcalfe) Leonard

To Muzette, Angela and all the Family from Peggy (Wurgler) Axtman -
Sorry to hear about the loss of your mom. Please know I have good memories of your mother from the times I would come over to visit and play at your house. I especially loved her "accent" and can still hear her voice in my mind saying "MUZ-ette". Peace be with you. from Peggy
