    Chère tante Liv, une magnifique femme s’éteint et laissera sa douceur et sa joie de vivre dans le ciel étoilé. Tu es la tante que avec qui j’ai été le plus près dans ma vie, j’en suis choyée. Tu es la femme la plus gentille que je connaisse. Ton perpétuel sourire était contagieux.
    À la famille, Dan (Marie-Josée), Cedar(Nathan), Eric, Francis, Henri, Colin, Layne et tous les gens qui la connaissez, je suis avec vous de tout coeur.

    Force, courage, amour à travers ce deuil.

    Bon voyage belle Liv remplie d’amour,

    Chantale, Shany, Yoan et Alec xxx
