GALBRAITH–In loving memory of a dear husband, father and grandfather, Ransford, who passed away five years ago on April 21, 2012.

Today recalls a memory

Of a loved one gone to rest.

And those who think of him today

Are those who loved him best.

The flowers we lay upon his grave

May whither and decay,

But the love of him who lies beneath

Will never go away.

Lovingly remembered, Lavina, Esther, Paul and famililies

BEAUDIN–In memory of Humphrey Beaudin, April 26, 2016.

In remembering your laughter you feel so near.

But in our hearts we wish you were stil here

To share one more ice cream cone down on the dock,

While watching the yachtsman during another special walk.

Your work was done, and now with the Lord, you have eternal rest.

Thanks for being our father and Paw. We always knew we had the best.

Aloha, Leilani and Susan

BEAUDIN–In loving memory of my dear husband, Humphrey, who passed away April 26, 2016.

A year ago today you left us.

You may be gone, but you still live on in our hearts.

Although our time together was rather short, we made the most of each day we had.

I cherish the memories we made.

Lovingly remembered and dearly missed by wife Eunice and family

We’ll be together again.

Until then, my girl,

Know I miss you dearly.

Love, Mom, Xman and family

TAYLOR–In memory of our parents, Evelyn G., May 1, 2012 and Willard John, February 27, 2014.
