32nd Anniversary

April 21, 1988

We thought of you with love today, but that is nothing new.
We thought about you yesterday, and days before that too.
We think of you in painful silence; we often speak your name to somehow ease the pain.
Now all we have are memories and your picture in a frame.
You memory is our keepsake with which we will never part.

On April 9 and 10, the combination of high tides and high winds forced the water of the St. Lawrence River to flood the quays of the Old Port. As a result, Rue Dalhousie was closed to traffic between Rue Saint-Paul and Rue du Petit-Champlain. The water receded with the tides on Thursday and Friday afternoon but rose again in the evening.
