We are only given one life. We are rarely given two chances. I can think of no greater gift, then knowing at the end of our journey, the love we gave made us far richer than any earthly wealth could ever provide. Rest in peace my Father, may you ever more know the love that has always been for you.

So sorry to hear about Robert. He was always very cordial with us at mass. Darlene, Eric, Shanin and family, our prayers are with you at this time.
Felix and Carmen.

Somewhere the trails of life are resolved into peace,and that soul finds its way to the light. Amen

You will always be remembered with "Love"... Sweet Dreams. Tracy
