"At the end of life, we will not be asked how much pleasure we had in it, but how much service we gave in it; not how full it was of success, but how full it was of sacrifice; not how happy we were, but how helpful we are; not how ambition was gratified, but how love was served." A Private Family Service was held at McCall Bros., Johnson and Vancouver Streets. Private Committal Service and Entombment in The Royal Oak Mausoleum.
