""They say that from the instant he lays eyes on her, a father adores his daughter. Whoever she grows up to be, she is always to him that little girl in pigtails. She makes him feel like Christmas. In exchange, he makes a secret promise not to see the awkwardness of her teenage years, the mistakes she makes, or the secrets she keeps." - Anonymous"

I feel so privileged to have had you in my life. First you held me in your arms, then you held each of my precious blessings. Aidan, Corbin and Clara will forever be reminded of you through pictures and stories. With the love I felt in the room that evening, I know my children will continue to be protected by your white light and strong spirit.

We already miss you

"Therese, Pj, Michael and family,
Thinking of you all in these difficult times. Our deepest sympathies. Only time will make his absence a little bit more tolerable but he will always be in your heart.

Therese, you will remember this, it goes back to when we lived in Belleville... To this day, I am sure that Gerry would still make fun of me for the fact that I could make more sandwiches if I minced my ham than if I sliced it!!!  Rest in Peace uncle Gerry.

Marjolaine et Philip xoxo"

"Gods Garden

God looked around his garden and saw an empty space, he looked down on the earth and saw a weary face, he knew  that you were suffering, he knew you were in pain, he knew you would not get well upon the earth again , he took you in his gentle arms and carried you to rest, Gods Garden must be beautiful for he only takes the best.

Karen and John"

"Goodbye dad, I had to say
On a cold winter day
I’ll remember the good times and try not to be sad
But saying goodbye still hurts so bad

I miss you more than I can express
My love for you will never grow less
I keep trying to imagine how I will go on
I realize tomorrow is another dawn

I know you’re in heaven above
Looking down on us with all your love
Only to whisper in our ear
Remember that I’ll never stop loving you dear

I’ll always remember the good times we had
Remember the man, my wonderful dad
I’ll remember you each and every day
And if I need to talk to you, I’ll just sit down and pray

One day we’ll be together again
To talk about all the places we been
Until the time, I’ll always treasure
Having you for a dad was such a great pleasure
