  1. wow..
    not sure how i even managed across this page but decided i would not Not watch a fellow Surrettes’ video – especially with the same two-r spelling.
    Sorry to see you lost your Father – the both of you too young it seems to me. of course we don’t have much say on these matters. The very fact that you miss him and it hurts shows there was much to love about him. And as far as Surrettes gpo in general.. have you ever seen Surette Island off of Nova Scotia? And it’s still full of Surrettes to this day! Some two R’s but loads of the one R type.

    years back both my Mom and dad took a trip up there and he found the actual house of his great great great great-grandpa I think it was, and when the family living there Now came outside to see who they were, (and turns out they too were zSurettes, but no ‘known’ relation) and they invited my parents inside and everyone spent the rest of the day together talking about Surrette-Things and of life in general. (Ha!)
    So know that you come from a long line of friendly folk who’d love of God, each other and freedom gained them an island which still bares the name.
    Wish you well little-surrette. and when you let your heart lead and make your decisions in life, the smaller ones as well as the big ones, then truly it’s hard to go wrong.
    Peace, Melissa.
