It is with great sadness that my family and I announce that Michèle-France--mother, belle-mère and granny extraordinaire--has passed away on Christmas Eve.
We will share more about her life when we return to France for her funeral, which will take place on January 4th, 4pm local time in France.
Kristi, Jean-Marc, Max, and Jackie
