DEYO, Frances Bernice (Lees) I'm Free Don't grieve for me, for now I'm free I'm following the path God laid for me, I took His hand when I heard Him call I turned by back and left it all. I could not stay another day, To laugh, to love, to work or play Tasks left undone must stay that way, I found that place at the close of day. If my passing has left a void Then fill it with remembered joy, A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss Ah yes, these things, I too will miss. Be not burdened with times of sorrow I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow My life's been full, I savoured much Good friends, good times, A loved one's touch. Perhaps my time seemed all too brief, Don't lengthen it now with undue grief Lift up you head and share with me God wanted me now, He set me free. - Until we meet again, remembered by Irvin, Keith and Luisa, Ken and Darlene and families.

Donald Alfred “Don“ Miller - In Memoriam
MILLER, Donald Alfred “Don“ - In loving memory of a dear companion who passed away February 22, 2006 God looked around His garden, And found and empty space, He then looked down upon this earth, And saw your tired face. He put His arms around you, And lifted you to rest. God's garden must be beautiful, He only takes the best, He knew that you were suffering, He knew you were in pain, He knew that you might never, Get well on this earth again. He saw the road was getting rough, And the hills were hard to climb, So He closed your weary eyelids, And whispered ‘Peace be Thine'. It broke my heart to lose you, But you never went alone, For part of me went with you, The day God called you home. - Sadly missed, loved always, Linda.

Bill Minifie - In Memoriam
MINIFIE, Bill - February 22, 2004. I heard the voice of Jesus say, ‘Come unto me and rest; lay down, O weary one, lay down your head upon my breast'. I came to Jesus as I was, weary and worn and sad; I found in him a resting place, and he has made me glad. I heard the voice of Jesus say, ‘Behold, I freely give the living water; thirsty one, stoop down and drink and live'. I came to Jesus, and I drank of that life-giving stream; my thirst was quenched, my soul relieved and now I live in him. I heard the voice of Jesus say, ‘I am this dark world's light; look unto me, your morn shall rise, and all your days be bright'. I looked to Jesus, and I found in him my star, my sun; and in that light of life my travelling days are done. -Your wife Gwen, children and grandchildren.
