BOUTILIER - In loving memory of a wonderful father, father-in-law and grandfather, Donald, who passed away May 10, 1996.
Remembering you is easy,
Dad, we do it everyday.
Missing you is a heartache, that never goes away.
We do not need a special day,
To bring you to our hearts and minds.
The days we do not think of you are impossible to find.
They say time heals all sorrow and helps us to forget,
But time has only shown us,
That the love you had for us is something we cherish yet.
Sadly missed and loved by daughter Stella, Kenny, son Donald, daughter-in-law Jeannie and grandchildren Travis, Tyler and Trent.

GLENHAM - In loving memory of Gordon Glenham who passed away February 9th, 1998.
For all who loved you
It's hard to believe
That a year has passed
And still we grieve.
Gordon was a loving and devoted husband and father and was especially close to his grandchildren Kye, Oliver, Max and Nicholas.
We miss you terribly, Dad.
Forever loved and cherished, The Glenham Clan
