Let the memory of Ed stay with us forever

In loving memory of our Father – Edward Skibinski

Sunrise May 28th, 1938 – Sunset July 4th, 2011


Never ready to say goodbye, to someone we hold dear,

If it was up to us dear dad, we’d always hold you here.

But god has reasons of his own, and our arms are empty and our hearts are filled, with the beautiful memories and love you have given us over the years.

For we who loved each day with you, now find those days to brief.

We love you dad more than you’ll ever know, and there is a place in our hearts than no one can fill.

We know you’ll be in heaven as a shining star, no matter how far away you seem, Heaven is never too far

So we’ll trust you to God’s care, and know someday once more.

We’ll hold you to our hearts again, when we all reach heavens shore.

                                                                    (Saralyn Smith)

With much love from your children, Kerry and Tannis
