Hi all,

I have some additional information to share that I thought would be of
interest to a number of people.

1) There have been some queries as to specifically how one can help the
family directly.  A Special Needs Trust has been established for Francois'
son, Olivier. This fund will be used to offset the costs of Olivier's
treatments that aren't covered by medical insurance or other funding.  If
you are interested in making a donation to this fund, please contact me
directly for further details.

2) The funeral is scheduled as follows:
Saturday, April 5 at 14:00 hours, at the funeral Cooperative in the
Outaouais, 95 boulevard Cité-des-Jeunes, Gatineau (QC) J8Y 6 X 3

3) If you have any photos of Francois from meetings, etc, can you please
forward those to me?  I am putting together a scrapbook for Olivier. Also,
if you want to include a personal note, please send that.

Thanks for all your support,
