HE ONLY TAKES THE BEST

God saw that he was getting tired,
A cure was not to be.
So He put His arms around him
and whispered, "Come with Me."
With tearful eyes, we watched him suffer,
And saw him fade away.
Although we loved him dearly,
We could not make him stay.
A golden heart stopped beating,
Hard working hands to rest.
God broke our hearts to prove to us
He only takes "the best".

I am taking the care to Bob today to get the brakes done and of course I am thinking of you. You always went to Bob to fix things on the car, which you gifted me upon your passing. The care means so much to me, when it's days are done I will have a hard time with that too. Miss you so very much, thinking of you always, Love Mark!! RIP, God Bless...

Dad, Uncle John and Auntie Bet, I was feeling lonesome this morning so I came out to visit you all. I stayed awhile and said prayers and remembered some of the great times we had together, I don't remember too much of you Uncle John. You are all very much missed and I'm glad you are all reunited in heaven in the arms of the almighty Lord. Love to all of your forever!! God Bless!!

We lost you one year ago today. I miss you each and everyday and wish you were still with us! I know you are at peace in heaven but that still does not fill the void of not having you with us. I love and miss you always and time does not make it easier. LOVE YOU FOR ALWAYS!

Not a day goes by where I don't think of you, I miss you so very much. It's simply not fair that those you love have to go when they are called. I am comforted knowing you are in heaven with God and Jesus and happy and content...but we still miss you with us! Love you for Always!

It's been 5 weeks today and the pain is still fresh. Will always remember the drives when you took me to see Mark. I will be forever grateful for that. I am so sorry all the times you had to wait for me in the car, you never complained. Miss You!!

Only we will ever know

Car Rides

Shared by Mark Stevens on April 24, 2011

Dad would usually take a car ride each evening, driving through Assiniboine Park hoping to catch the sight of deer on the roadside.  He quite often saw Deer.  He enjoyed viewing the eagle, on his tree perch, when the eagle exhibit was installed.

Dad stopped taking his rides in October 2010 as he was not feeling well and he started losing his energy as early at September 2010.

It is very sad how cancer takes over your life and the things you have in it, Dad fought a very brave battle, complaining little and accepted his fate.

Dad you are missed and even though you were not a religious man, I do believe you did believe in God, just not in the religous fashion.  You said at Riverview you had some very nice chats with the Chaplain, as a matter of fact, we knew you were quite taken by him and the discussions you shared.  Therefore, I know in my heart that as you thought the end was simply turning off the lights and falling asleep and that was it, it is so much more, there is eternal life, and I know you are in heaven succeeding in whatever you may be doing.  When I say "rest in peace" that is what I mean, be at peace in the life you shared with us and move on into the new exciting life that's awaiting you in heaven!!

You are missed always!!  All my love to you , Dad!

Love Mark
