Gifting Memories – June 6, 2022

What would you do if you knew you had two years to live? Local artist Lyne Charlebois was diagnosed with cancer. The prognosis was two years. On good days, she painted scenes reflecting the history of the community. A college of her work hung in the community center hosting our stay. To listen to our host Joanne speak of the illustrated scenes was as if she was intimately shared her family photo album with us. Lyne Charlebois gave a gift of good memories.

My favorite, ferry crossing Ottawa River.
Sure beats walking.
