    My memory of my Grandma Bourdeau is going to her house for family suppers. Our family was so big. I am the oldest granddaughter, my dad is John. I remember our family so big that the children had to have our own table. I know I always wanted to sit at the adult table and never got a chance. Even though I wasn't always my Grandma Bourdeau not a day gone by I didn't think about her and the whole family. Thank you God for creating Facebook if it wasn't for that I wouldn't have gotten to see pictures and chat with my cousins and 2nd cousins. I pray to God that I can some how get up to NY to be another support for my dad, my mom MaryEllen and all my aunts and my uncles and the rest of my family. God will make a way for me too. If God don't see it that way. to my family I am there in spirit.
    Message to my Grandma Bourdeau when you see my mom and dads side of the families tell them I love and miss them. Also for my sister Sherri Lynn I love and miss her too. One day I will be able to tell them myself. Grandma Bourdeau here is a pictures of me and my husband, my 4 daughters Heather,(26) Michelle(24)Leigh Ann(21)and Yasmine and my son Jonathan (26) and last but not least my grandson Joseph

    Grandma Bourdeau you will be missed but never forgotten.
