From The Montreal Gazette:

MONTREAL - Léa Guilbeault’s family and friends gathered to say goodbye to their “sunshine” on Tuesday at Église Ste. Thérèse-de-l'Enfant Jésus on St. Hubert St.

Her husband, Hani Beitinjaneh, who was in a wheelchair from the injuries he sustained in the accident that killed Guilbeault, spoke to his late wife’s rose-draped casket between gasps and sobs.

“Léa, I love you, I will always miss you,” he said. “I’m so grateful to have had you in my life, even if it was sort a short period. I’m the luckiest man alive.”
