Sending warm sunshine hugs to everyone who is having a “down” day or a “blue day” and to everyone else. Always keep a rainbow in your heart.

Love and Prayers,



BOWERMAN–In loving memory of a dear father, grandfather, and great-grandfather, William (Bill), who left us suddenly on July 23, 2002.

If I could write a story

It would be the greatest ever told

Of a kind and loving father

Who had a heart of gold.

If I could write a million pages

But still be unable to say, just how

Much I love and miss him

Every single day.

I will remember all he taught me

I’m hurt but won’t be sad

Because he’ll send me down the answers

And he’ll always be MY DAD.

Lovingly remembered by your daughter Marilyn, son-in-law Jim, grandchildren Marilee, Mallory and Mitchell, and great-grandchildren Landen and Hailee

HARRIS–In loving memory of Betty Harris who passed away at home in her sleep on the morning of July 31, 2016.

Love Stu Harris and family

MCCAULEY–In loving memory of Ian McCauley, son, brother, husband and father who passed away one year ago on July 23, 2016.

You’ve gone across the river,

To a shore of peaceful rest.

Your Lazy Boy chair is empty,

As you sang in it, the best.

Your laugh is gone forever,

Since you left us that sad day.

Your hand we cannot touch,

As you walk with us each day.

You are missed, Ian, in every way,

And if we listen closely,

You are whispering to us

I’m alright and you’re OK.

Alicia McCauley – July 25, 2005

Liam McCauley – January 21, 2011

Put your arms around them Ian,

Treat them with special care

And all that seems unfair.

Sadly missed, love and kisses,

Your family

CORBIERE–Remembering our daughter, Vicky Lynn, who passed away July 19, 2013.

So many things have happened,

Since you were called away.

So many things to share with you,

Had you been left to stay.

So keep Your arms around her, Lord

And give her special care,

Make up for all she suffered

That seemed to us unfair.

So many times we’ve needed you,

So many times we’ve cried,

If our love could have saved you, “Vic”

You would be here by your family’s side.

Loving you always,

Mum, Dad and Roxy Boo
