    My deepest sympathy to Bruce, Danny, and Tom. God bless Mary Beth, a generous cousin who opened her house to us before our Alaska trip. We had a happy night in her backyard near the trees and under the sky. Rose Mary Dreussi

    Dearest Mary Beth, I remember our visits to your home. You and Bruce were very gracious host. You always went the extra mile by recreating the old Hoffman recipes. One time we even visited Victoria Canada where we explored the capital city. The highlight of the trip for us was your introduction to Butchart Gardens. A few months ago you surprised me with a colorful quilt cover-up that you made. I was touched by your kindness to honor me with such a precious gift. I shall forever treasure it. Our deepest sympathy to Bruce, Danny & Tom. May your many memories bring your hearts peace. Dear Cousin I shall see you in the next world. Love, Carolyn & Gene

    My deepest condolences and prayers go out to the family. I had the pleasure of meeting and knowing Mrs. Paquette when my son attended Foster High School, and then again when my daughter attended. When my daughter passed away in 2016, Mrs. Paquette came to the memorial. She was always nice. She will be greatly missed.
