Margareth and Lisa: Chantal's life was far too brief, but our comfort comes with those gifts of spirit, strength and love that she left behind with her friends and family. She will always own a bright little spot in my heart.

"As does Karen Hoyland, I have many good memories of playing handbells with Chantal. In particular, I recall that for a beautiful rendition of the Shaker Hymn, called Simple Gifts, Chantal and I had the top ( smallest and highest) bells. We, two, had a special trill to do in the chorus. We did it perfectly in every practice and grinned at eachother after we also did it perfectly in the church service. I always remember this whenever I hear that song and will continue to think of Chantal when I do. My partner, Bev McAlpine, also sends her condolences, feeling sad as I do."

Margareth,and Lisa and children, I wish you well through this time of getting accustomed to Chantal's physical absence, but know that Chantal must be in a good place right now and she has been a wonderful and unique teacher to all of us.

I have fond memories of Chantal. The fun we had in the handbell choir -especially at the Easter service one year when we all got lost and Elinor the conductor yelled out "BAR 86". Somehow we all got it together for the final few bars of music. However, we were mortified for our gaff. No one wanted to go back in the sanctuary to face the congregation. We had a group hug and we all agreed that our mothers and true friends would still love us even if we screwed-up that piece of music!
Chantal was also the best dancer I have ever had the pleasure of being on the dance floor with. My favourite dance with her was the Red Line Waltz. Just a beautiful dance and Chantal was as light on her feet as a summer breeze. It was a joy to float around the room with her.
And the year of the Boston to P-Town bike ride. What an accomplishment! 212 km in one day. There were miles and miles of riding that year to get prepared. Lunch breaks in fallow farmer's fields beside weathered old barns. Endless chatter to help pass the time to the next crossroads. In the end we did it (and got the T-shirt).
At yet another crossroads and you have gone one way and I will go another. But we will meet again and I hope I make it in time for tea-dance. And I hope when I get there - there will be T-shirts that actually fit. I love you.

Sincerest Sympathy in the loss of your beloved daughter. I do not know you nor did I know Chantal but reading her death notice made me sad.
Death is a heartache no one can heal, love is a memory no one can steal.
One day at a time. Time is the only healer.
She is now at peace in a place where there is no pain or sufferng no more tears.
Tucker will miss his beloved Chantal.
You are in our thoughts and prayers as you bid farewell to your beautiful Chantal.
Sincerest sympathy,
