BRIERE, Dolores (Dolly)
Today August 3rd, 2002, at the age of 47 years, my human existence has ceased, but my spiritual one has begun. I am now in eternal bliss with the One I have always believed in and lived by. I was never one to conform to man made limits but I always did my best to observe His ten rules. If I can leave behind one legacy, it is for all to realize the importance of these rules He gave us thousands of years ago. For, to live by these rules can only bring happiness and love. This is what I wish for every person waiting for eternal life. God is good and has never let me down. He blessed by marriage to Maurice, my friend for life. Then He double blessed me with two daughters who became by two best friends and confidantes. Angèle and her husband Roger Gaudreault and my beautiful grandchild Zacharie of Hanmer and Mélanie and her husband Julien Mainville of Ottawa. I was also blessed with my parents Georgette and Florian Tremblay of Hanmer, who were ever so understanding and giving. He gave me brothers, Marc (Fran) Tremblay, Jacques (Jacqueline) Tremblay and Daniel (Chantal) Tremblay all of Hanmer who were always by my side through thick and then. When it came to in-laws, He choose only the very best. Mother-in-law Rita Serré and father-in-law Fidel Serré (predeceased).

As well I shared the love of numerous nieces and nephews, aunts and uncles and friends. I thank God for all He gave me and now I can do so face to face. I will wait for those I left behind and when your time comes, I shall ask Him to let me greet you with open arms into his kingdom. I love you all and will patiently wait for your arrival.
