To Leroy Desjardin and family:
Sending my deepest regrets on the loss of both your lovely wife, Gisele and beautiful daughter Debra. May your faith give you strength to bear this grief and help you to remember all the wonderful years you have had with these lovely women.
I remember Gisele when she was young and worked at Hudson Pulp & Paper (I worked in the office). She was a beautiful lady.
I am also sending this to you and your family on behalf of my deceased brother, Albert B. Foster, Jr. who drove trucks for the same company as you did Leroy.
Sincerely, Barbara Foster Sprague

Gisele has brought years of joy to our family. Before my Mother passed she had a "Gisele" ceramic Christmas tree (which we named "Gisele". For years this tree was our favorite thing about Christmas. After my Mother passed I was given the "Gisele". We also purchased another "Gisele tree" in case something happened to the original. We just want to say how sorry we were to hear of her passing and will think of her each Christmas as always.
