Love Lives On

Those we love are never really lost to us,

We feel them in so many

special ways.

Through friends they always cared about,

And dreams they left behind.

In beauty they added to our days,

In words of wisdom we still

carry with us,

And memories that never

will be gone.

Those we love are never

really lost to us

For everywhere, their

special love lives on.

Cremation has taken place. A graveside memorial service will be held at the Quadra Island Cemetery at a date to be announced later.

The family would like to thank the continuing care nurses and Home Support workers of Campbell River, Dr. Neufeld and the staff at Laurel Lodge, also the nurses and staff at St. Joseph’s Hospital on second floor for all their understanding and loving care.
