If roses grow in heaven,

Lord please pick a bunch for me.

Place them in my mothers arms,

And tell her they’re from me.

Tell her we love and miss her,

And when she turns to smile.

Place a kiss upon her cheek,

And hold her for a while.

Because remembering her is easy,

We do it everyday.

But there’s an ache within our hearts,

That will never go away.

Mom enjoyed scrap-booking, ceramics and traveling. She loved traveling by bus to visit her family. She had done many volunteer positions; Salvation Army, People in Motion, Glass Slippers, Denny House, Baker Manor and the first Yule Tide Dinner.

Mom had a beautiful heart felt personality she will be missed by all.

The family would like to thank Denny House for their compassion and care.

Friends and family are invited to a gathering at the Williams Lake Cemetery on May 16 at 2:00pm. Tea to follow at the Seniors’ Activity Centre (enter on the right side of the building). In lieu of flowers, friends wishing to do so may make donations to the Salvation Army.
