If heaven had visiting hours.
I would come every day.
Just to say hey.
Make sure your okay.
Tell you i miss you cause your far away.
Words cant describe how much i miss you.
Days i just wanna hug and kiss you.
I know you'd say I'm strong cause I'm makin it thru.
This life aint easy without you.
If heaven had visting hours.
I wouldn't cry bout not seeing your face.
I'd just be sad bout the distance and space.
Even thou i know your in a better place.
I just wanna hug you and never let go.
I wish these hours go by slow.
But God obviously needs you more than me thou.
He's callin you back, its time you go home.

Gary, Richard, David, Jeffrey, Mark and families,

Sorry to hear about your +Dad...a great worker and I heard lots of stories from your mom +Jane on how he was always working for the people at the trailor park. May the Lord give his rest from his labors and eternal peace. From this end of the world I will keep him in prayer. May our Holy Mother Mary give you strength and consolation.

Uncle Irv, our hearts are heavy and full of sadness now that you've gone. You will be greatly missed and always loved! Your kind, giving heart and sense of humor were like no other. I can't remember a time that you ever hesitated to help someone out, even if they never asked. You made us laugh and smile often. I have many fond memories of being with you and Aunt Jane on Gordon Ave and in Florida. I take comfort in knowing you are together again with her and are at peace. There are a lot of good people up there with you and I know you will all be looking down on us so I guess we better behave. I'll close with a few of my favorites you said.... Uncle Irv, what can I get you? Your answer was often steak and eggs, when there is nothing else to say there was always an opportunity to sing Jingle Bells or just a simple Bum, bum, bum. You're forever in our hearts. Love you so much:) Kim, Glen & Brandon
