Delma Bertrand On Thursday, February 6th, 2014 at 2:00pm Tom, Blaire, Stacie and Dallas kissed and hugged their best friend, wife, and mom as she fell asleep one last time. Del's war with cancer, for the last seven years, never once slowed her down or ever got the best of her quick-witted, fiery personality. Throughout her battle she continued to be the "rock" of our family, making it easy for us to love her more and more each day. Always the first to smile, laugh, enjoy a great party, or "bleep" a wisecrack, made Del the greatest friend, co-worker and best of all," our mom". We would love to thank all the doctors, nurses and support staff at the Victoria Cancer Center, the Leukemia/BMT Program and the BMT Daycare Unit at Vancouver General Hospital for the never-ending excellent treatment that only people who truly care, can provide. Individual thanks to doctors T. Nevill, A. Attwell, Mary G., Ryan L., Miriam N., Shondra S., and B. Bass. Mostly, our heartfelt thanks to Linda from Duncan Home Care, and to Victoria Hospice nurses Christina, Stacey and Susan, for surrounding Del with endless loving care and true compassion in Del's last days. We will always love and miss you, and we know your best friend Abby was waiting for you to take her for a walk. Celebration of Life for Delma is being held at Duncan Meadows Golf Course Saturday, Feb 15th, 12:00-4:00.
