LALOND Basil. September 28, 1928 - January 29, 1996. But still the empty chair Reminds us of the face, the smile, Of one who once sat there. Lovingly remembered by Dagney, Cindy, Lane, Shelley, Maureen, Mike and grandchildren.
CHUHANIUK In loving memory of William who left us on January 29, 1988. Miss me a little - but not to long, And not with your head bowed low. Remember the love we once shared; Miss me - but let me go. For this is a journey we all must take, And each must go alone. It's all part of the Master's plan; A step on the road to home. When you are lonely and sick at heart, Go to the friends we know And bury your sorrows in doing good deeds, Miss me - but let me go. Words by which you lived by Dad. Love from all of us.

In her youth she was involved in a number of school, music and 4H activities. Karen had an artistic flair; she loved to sing, had a passion for the arts, and was a great decorator. Karen was a people's person, she was kind and gentle yet firm and persuasive. She often said that she hoped what she was going through would spare those whom she knew.

Karen was predeceased by a brother, Grant in 1985. While Karen crisscrossed the United States, undergoing numerous operations and treatments in her quest for life; it was not to be. Karen's strength and inspiration are summarized in a verse she hung on her kitchen fridge: What Cancer Cannot Do Cancer is so limited. It cannot cripple love. It cannot shatter hope. It cannot corrode faith. It cannot destroy peace. It cannot kill friendship. It cannot suppress memories. It cannot silence courage. It cannot invade the soul. It cannot steal eternal life. It cannot conquer the spirit.
Karen will be forever remembered for her love of life, her dedication to family and her unwavering spirit. A Memorial service will be held at 1:30 p.m. Saturday, January 16 at Immanuel Lutheran Church in Naicam, SK.
