IN MEMORY

CLARKE–In loving memory of Sylvia Wilhelmina Clarke, 1935 – 2013.

No one knows how much we miss you,

No one knows the bitter pain.

We have suffered, since we lost you

Life has never been the same.

In our heart your memory lingers

Sweetly tender, fond and true,

There is not a day, dear Mother,

That we do not think of you.

From the Clarke family

MOORE–In loving memory of Terry Jaqueline Moore, May 26, 1960 – February 22,2014.

Heaven’s gate swung gently open,

The Master called softly, “Come,”

And you, dear one, took the Master’s hand,

And your work on earth was done.

We’ll never cease to miss you

Our hopes, our joys, our fears.

But one day, in God’s garden,

When the Master calls us to come.

You’ll be at the gates with open arms

And say to us, “Welcome Home!”

From the Clarke family

LEBLOND—In loving memory of Sheila Marie Leblond, February 20, 2015.

Nothing can ever take away

The love a heart holds dear.

Fond memories linger every day,

Remembrance keeps you near.

Missing you always, forgetting you never.

Your family, Don, Nicki and Christine

MOORE—–In loving memory of my mom, Terry Moore, who passed away February 22, 2014.

For a Dear Loved One

You filled the world with special joy and happiness untold,

You always has a sunny way and a lovely heart of gold.

You made life so much brighter just by being thoughtful too,

And saying kind and helpful things was typical of you.

That’s why it’s hard to face the world,

And know you won’t be there,

Lighting up life so warmly with your smile beyond compare.

The memories you’ve left behind

Grow sweeter day by day.

But you are missed dear mother

More than any words can say.

Always remembered and forever loved,

Leslie

MOORE–In loving memory of our Grandma Terry Moore.

Death changes everything!

Times changes nothing…

We still miss the sound of your voice,

The wisdom in your advice,

The stories of your life.

And just being in your presence.

So, no, time changes nothing,

We miss you as much today

As we did the day you died.

We just miss you.

Always remembered and forever loved,

Alyssa, Brianna and Katelin
