It broke our hearts to lose you,
But you didn't go alone.

And forever in our memory.

DUGGAN, Leo Patrick
DUGGAN - In loving memory of a dear husband, father and grandfather, Leo Patrick , who passed away April 26, 1986.
When April breezes whisper cool in our ears
And voices of angels peel back the years,
To a moment in time, to a moment we knew,
To a moment we shared, to a moment with you.
There are moments that all of us hold in our hearts,
There are moments together and moments apart.
Moments of sunshine,
Moments of rain,
Moments of pleasure,
And moments of pain.
In the blink of an eye,
A moment is through,
But we'll always cherish
Our moments with you.
Forever loved, wife Shirley, daughter Jane grandchildren Amanda and Mathew.
