George Stanley Willan


Jan. 3, 1920 to Nov. 8, 2003

“You will live in our

hearts forever.”

The Creator saw you

getting tired

And the cure was not to be

So wrapped you in

his loving arms

And whispered, “come with me.”

You suffered much in silence

Your spirit did not bend

You faced your pain

with courage

Until the very end.

You tried so hard to stay with us

Your fight was all in vain

The Creator took you

in loving arms

And saved you from all pain.

Memorial serivce was held on Nov. 13, 2003 at the Anglican Church in Hazelton, B.C. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Cancer Society.

Special thank you to Dr. Flynn who had this very special bond with George. The care and sincerity from the staff at Wrinch Memorial Hospital was very much appreciated.
