There is only one thing I ask of you all;
“No sad tears” for me,
for most of life’s emotions have been mine.
Recall me instead with a smile
as the Mother, Grandmother,
Great-Grandmother or Friend
who shared your laughter and tears.
I loved you all, so please remember me
and find strength in the times we shared.
Arrangements are in the care of
Vernon Funeral Home 250-542-0155.
