DAD

God looked around his Garden and found an empty place.

He then looked down upon his earth and saw your loving face.

He put his arms around you and lifted you to rest.

His Garden must be beautiful, he always takes the best.

He knew that you were suffering, he knew you were in pain.

And knew that you would never get well on earth again.

He saw your path was difficult, he closed you tired eyes,

He whispered to you “Peace be Thine” and gave you wings to fly.

When we saw you sleeping so calm and free of pain,

We would not wish you back to earth to suffer once again.

You’ve left us precious memories, your love will be our guide,

You live on through your children, you’re always by our side.

It broke our hearts to lose you, but you did not go alone.

For part of us went with you on the day God called you home

Love your son

VINNIE

Emily and Ron,

Mark and I were recently chatting about our sail up the Bay with Poppy and what fun it was to watch him enjoy his appetisers and talk about the past.

You two have been wonderful to him.

It was a pleasure for us to meet Poppy and have a few moments with him.

You are in our hearts and prayers.

Love, Martha Lee & Mark

Our deepest sympathies to you all in this time of your loss. May each of you cherish all the memories you hold so dear about your Dad, and Grandfather. For me, I will remember the times he sat with my Dad and they would share war “stories” together, and his smile whenever his great-grandchilden came into the room. He is at peace now, no longer in pain, with God. Peace be with you.

To The Stefonowich Family:

You have my heartfelt condolence for the loss of your love one. Words cannot express the pain and sorrow that you feel. However, please find comfort in God’s promise found in the Bible at John chapter 5, verses 28&29. It reads: “Do not marvel at this, because the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life.”

You are in my prayers.
