It is with great sadness that we four sisters announce the death of our beloved father, Raymond, on January 7, 2021, in Montreal, Quebec, at the age of 83.
He leaves behind many loved ones, namely his four daughters, Veronica (Anthony), Viviane Sabilla, Stephanie (Tom), Danielle (Larry), and his grandchildren, Adriana (Jason), Gaby, Adam Yassin, Yasmine Amina, Alexandre, Nora, Leeland, Melvin and Evans. Our heart goes out to his siblings and their families, Gilbert (deceased) (Marie), Roger (Nouhad), Thérèse (Elie), Monique, Bernard, Paulette (deceased) and many nieces and nephews. Appreciation goes out to all those who have been a great source of strength and support to our family, especially Alcida and Georges, Nabil, Jorge and many of Raymond’s cherished friends in Sechelt, British Columbia.
Our deep gratitude goes out to the staff at Lakeshore General Hospital, in particular Dr. Iancu, Dr. Mandilaras, nurse Sabrina Jeans, Dr. Chen, Dr. Wanneh, Dr. Buhari, Dr. Abid, all the RNs, LPNs, PABs and staff on 4 West, as well as the Cardiology team, in particular Dr. Schiff and especially Bruno, whose intervention came at a most crucial time. Un merci spécial à Sylvie-Anne, archiviste, qui notre père a particulièrement apprécié. We also extend our appreciation to those we were unable to name here.
Special thanks also to nurses Louise Brossard, Dominique Overney and the team at Nova West Island, as well as the departments of home care (nurse Nancy Lemay) and palliative care (nurse Myriam Jean-Noel and Dr. Elena Neamt) at CLSC Pierrefonds, not to mention the staff at the blood taking clinic, who took great care of our father “Monsieur Raymond” over the last years. We also would like to thank nurse Sandy Fitzpatrick and all the staff at the West Island Cancer Wellness Centre. Our thanks also to pharmacist Nora Al-Khoury and her team for her professional and attentive overseeing of Raymond’s complex medicinal list.
Appreciation is also offered to Dr. Eiley, Mary-Anne and Connie for your care over the last three years. Thank you also to the MGH team under Dr. Thomas Hadgis.
Due to the circumstances of the pandemic, a ceremony will be held at a later date.
