Sending warm hugs and prayers to all! I knew Paula, John, Andrew from Church and attended school at St. Mary’s. Many memories of my grandparents (Bernadette & Gerry Gatien) stopping the van at the de Graauw house so that my Grandad could chat with John about something he was working on. There were a few times the phone would ring and it was Paula asking if I could come by and help her with her computer (again)… 😂 I was the computer “wiz kid” just down the road. She will be missed dearly ❤️🕯 - Monique Gatien
