The moment you passed away my heart split in two
The one side filled with memories
The other died with you
I think of you in silence
I often speak your name
I feel again the bitter blow,
That never should have came.
Each morning when I awake
I know that you are gone
No one knows the heartache as
I try to carry on
My heart still aches in sadness
secret tears will flow
What it meant to lose you
no one will ever know
My thoughts are always of you
Your place no one can fill
In life I loved you dearly
In death I love you still
They say time heals everything
But I know this isn't so
Because it hurts as much today
As it did when you had to go
All my love always, Honey (Wife Inez)

In George's memory donations may be made to the Lake of the Woods District Hospital, CT Scanner Fund or the Brain Tumor Foundation of Canada. Cards available at Brown Funeral Home & Cremation Centre or at the Celebration of Life which is to be held Friday, July 4th at the Sioux Narrows Community Centre from 2-5 p.m. Bring your memories, call 226-5373 for more information.

You can shed tears that he is gone
or you can smile because he has lived.
You can close your eyes and pray that he will come back or you can open your eyes and see all he left.
Your heart can be empty because you can not see him or you can be full of the love you shared.
You can turn you back on tomorrow, and, live yesterday or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday.
You can remember him and only that he is gone, or you can cherish his memory and let it live on.
You can cry and close your mind, be empty and turn your back, or you can do what he wanted - smile, open your eyes, love and go on.
Look up at the stars and you will see his spirit.
Lovingly remembered and sadly missed.
I love you Dad, Love Laura

In loving memory of our dear father and papa.
Silent thoughts of times together,
Hold memories that will last forever.
Those special years will not return,
When we were all together.
But the love we hold within our hearts,
Will be with us forever.
For you are now the sunshine,
That gently warms the face.
And there is consolation knowing,
That you're in a better place.
We feel you watching over us from above
Giving your praises, blessings and love.
you left us precious memories,
Your love will be our guide.
You live on through our children.
You're always by our side.
Someday we hope to meet you
We do not know when
To clasp your hand, in the better land,
Never to part again.
The love we shared, will live on
forever in our hearts and prayers,
Son George Jr, Gloria (wife),
granddaughters Shauna and Cassie.

My heart has a hole,
That no one will fill.
For 27 years
You were there,
You helped me to grow
How you did it all,
I will never know.
I hoped it would be longer,
I don't know,
Maybe, it makes me stronger?
I will never forget the lessons
You taught,
Or the rare times we fought.
My teacher, my mentor,
You taught me well,
The sadness inside
I cannot quell.
The fishing, the hunting,
Or just sitting there joking.
The times you helped me,
When I was working.
I have too much to say
With you not to attend
in the end,
I lost my best friend.
I love you Dad, Scott.

Marie Therese Caron

With regret we announce the passing of our beloved wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother Marie Therese Caron who passed away peacefully in her sleep at Pinecrest Home for the Aged on Saturday May 10, 2003

Therese was born June 3, 1915 to a family of 7 boys and 8 girls in the small railroad community of Raith, Ontario where her father was a station agent. She was educated in the family home by an in-house private teacher. Therese graduated with a grade 12 Diploma in the French language, and registered for nursing college in Thunder Bay where she received her registered nurses degree in 1939. During her college years she made many friends of whom she has kept contact with over the years.

In 1939 Therese moved to Kenora and worked at the St. Joseph's Hospital. She later worked at Pinecrest Home for the Aged until her retirement. She had met her husband Paul through a patient she had cared for. This patient felt that Therese would be a good catch for Paul, which proved to be true when they soon married on September 13, 1941. They resided in Norman and raised 6 children.

Therese was a long-time member of the Sacred Heart Women's League. In their earlier years they were both avid curlers at the Keewatin Curling Club. In the early 1970's they purchased a cottage at East Hawk Lake where they shared many memories with their family and friends. Therese loved her flowers and had 2 beautiful flower gardens, 1 at her home in Norman and the other at the cottage. Therese would enjoy the paddle boat at the cottage. Many times you would find her sitting on her wooden swing just enjoying the fresh air and listening to the birds sing.

Therese's biggest pride and enjoyment were her 14 grandchildren and 8 great-grandchildren whom she spent endless happy moments with. She enjoyed having picnics with them, making sand castles, roasting marshmallows over the bonfire at camp. She also enjoyed playing baseball as well as skating with them well into her late 60's. Therese had a special knack with children, her own and the children of the neighbourhood. She was a kind hearted, daring and very spiritual lady, always there for family and friends.

Therese leaves to mourn her loving husband of 61 years Leopold (Paul) Caron of Kenora; her only daughter Paula (Caron) Launder of Kenora and her family Jason (Vicky) Launder, Chris (Joy) Launder, Sandra (Simon); her 5 sons and their families of Kenora Leonard (Paulette) Caron and family Marcia (Wade) Gagnon, Mark (Candace) Caron, Lanny Caron and Cherie (Mike Hawes) Caron; Clem (Dianne ) Caron and family Tara-lee Caron, Tyson Caron, Trishelle Caron, Patrick (Elizabeth) Caron and Family Lisa (Ryan) Wolinski, Shauna (Mike Brochu) Caron; Marcel (Iris) Caron and family Danny Caron, Rejeanne (Justin Setterland) Caron and Conrad Caron. Therese also leaves behind 1 sister Berthe Rogers of Hamilton, Ontario, numerous nieces and nephews and 8 great-grandchildren.

Therese was predeceased by her parents Leon and Evelina Laliberte, seven brothers and six sisters.

Our deepest thanks go to a very caring, loving, and professional staff in G-wing at the Pinecrest Home for the Aged where our mother spent her last year.

A celebration of Therese's life will take place at St. Louis Roman Catholic Church on Thursday May 15, 2003 at 10:00 a.m. with a luncheon to follow in the parish hall.

When he wasn't on the baseball field he played hockey for the Keewatin Kanucks and Keewatin Millers and coached for the Keewatin Minor Hockey, and served on the executive of Keewatin Minor Hockey.
