Condolences Left For Viviane Clyne

Sincere sympathy to Ilone and Michael and Nathalie upon the passing of their beloved mother.
I was privileged to have had Viviane as a friend and customer. We would always discuss the family when I made a delivery and she was so proud of all of you. I will miss our talks. May she rest in peace.
