Condolences

Carol Gray :
Belated sympathy to each of the family. We are given life with no guarantees, only choices. One by one we leave this world and enter eternity. We lose our natural father, but can always have a spiritual Father. May the dear Father help each of us prepare wisely. With love and care, Carol
Josh:
You will be deeply missed Gord (Gramps) by myself and my family.
I will miss our phone calls/emails and our visits. You were like a grandfather. Rest easy.
Robert and Shirley :
Sorrow is a fruit.
God does not make it grow on limbs too weak to bear it.

We will be close in thought as we think of you gathered on Friday.

Keep encouraged
