Dear Corinne, Daniel, and Philippe. So sorry to hear about the passing of your father. Seeing this has brought back many, many memories of all our families' gatherings. Now, your father and my parents are together, probably arguing over quebec politics and sharing their miseries with wine and scotch. My sincere condolences to you all. Renée Owieczka

To the family of Monsieur Serruya, It has been 50 years since Monsieur Serruya was my first French teacher at Northmount High School. I have fond memories of his class and teaching skills, his kindness and his passion for helping his students succeed and fall in love with the language. Years later we recognized each other when I was his dietitian at the JGH and we conversed ‘en francais’. Sending my sympathies at this sad and difficult time. Rena Popielnik

As the French teacher for the first group of anglophone students to participate in a French immersion program at Northmount high school in 1973, Mr. Serruya left an indelible mark on all of us. His tremendous teaching ability was only matched by his wry sense of humor. When I speak French today and catch myself conjugating a verb improperly, I correct myself thanks to his tutelage, smile and think of him. Rest in peace.
