Cecilia Bastin

BASTIN, Cecilia

God saw you getting tired when a cure was not to be

So He closed His arms around you and whispered

“Come to Me”.

You didn’t deserve what you went through,

so He gave you rest.

God’s garden must be beautiful,

He only takes the best.

And when we saw you sleeping so peaceful and free from pain,

we could not wish you back to suffer that again.

 Cecilia departed this life to walk in God’s beautiful garden on Monday, May 31st, 2010. She had reached the age of 82 years.

Cecila is survived by her loving husband, Bill, to whom she had been married for 57 years, her two sons, Douglas (Jacki) of Surrey, and David (Jennifer) of Summerland, one daughter, Deborah (Kevin) Tierney of Maple Ridge, four grandchildren: Jamie and Mark Bastin, and Kelsey and Jesse Tierney, two brothers, Ted (Verna) Kirk of Bankend, SK., and Peter Kirk of Regina, SK., two sisters, Ann Dublanica of Regina, SK., and Sophie Chapman of Halifax, NS., numerous nieces, nephews and extended family.
