We would like to thank Dr. Smit and the wonderful nurses and staff at hospice house. Your concern and care of mom is so appreciated. No Service by request.

Donations to North Okanagan Hospice Society greatly appreciated, 3506-27th Ave., Vernon B.C. V1T 1S4.

Where I have gone I am not so small.

My soul is as wide as the world is tall.

I have gone to answer the call, the call

Of the one who takes care of us all.

Wherever you look, you will find me there.

In the heart of a rose, in the heart of a prayer,

On butterfly wings, on wings of my own

To you I am gone,

But I am never alone..

I am home.

We love you Mom, Grandma & G.G.
