Though we never know where life will take us

It's just a ride on a wheel

And we never know when death will shake us

And we wonder how it will feel

So good bye my friends

The times we had together throughout the years will take away the tears

It's okay now

Good bye my friends


To everything there is a season...

RickMy mom taught me well and kept me in line, was my rock when my dad died and now it up to me. If roses grow in Heaven Lord Please pick a bunch for me, Place them in my Mother,s arms and tell her they're from me. Tell her I love and miss her and when she turns to smile, Place a kiss upon her check and hold her for awhile. Because remembering her is easy, I do it everyday, But there is an ache within my heart, That will never go away unknown autor
Betty WiseRemembering your Mom today and all the wonderful family celebrations over the years. She added a special sparkle to every festivity and who could forget her ambrosia salad. She was blessed with two grandchildren that she adored and they in turn were blessed with her love and care. I trust that she is now with your Dad and my Mom and Dad and a sister who left too soon as well as our grandparents and doing her best to keep everyone in line.
Don and Anne GrahamAunt Ruth was Don's favourite Aunt. When we phoned her, he would always ask if this is his favourite Aunt Ruth and she would chuckle. When he was young, Aunt Ruth and Uncle Fred would invite him to Woodstock for the weekend and he always cherished these memories. When we were in London, we would always stop in for a visit wherever they were. My favourite Bible Verse is 1 Corinthians 13:4-8 Love is gentle, love is kind. It does not envy,it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonour others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never Fails. The Love of a Mother Our thoughts and prayers are with you Don and Anne and the Grahams
