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 a 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.
The family would like to express their most sincere appreciation to the dedicated staff at Vernon Jubilee Hospital, BC Ambulance Service, and Interior Health. Louise requested no service. Cremation arrangements entrusted to
