Two days ago on December 15th, my sister Marianne and her husband Gabriel celebrated their 35th wedding anniversary.
Marianne and Gabe met at work and soon their friendship turned to love. They choose a date, spoke with the priest of our old parish church, and made plans. I remember being with Marianne when she looked for her wedding dress at a fashionable ladies’ store in town (was it Ellies Dress Shop?) and being with her at the flower shop on Third Avenue when she choose her bouquet.
They married on Saturday, 15 December, 1979 at Notre-Dame-de-Lourdes (now Notre-Dame de la Paix) on Commercial Avenue. Father Yves Leclerc blessed their union.
Love you, Marianne and Gabe!
