In Memoriam BURKE In loving memory of a dear Husband Father and Grandfather Richard (Dick) Burke passed away April 27th, 2000 age 57 years Today recalls the memory, Of a loved one gone to rest, The thoughts of him are endless, To those who knew him best. Our sadness is so great, Every little event brings him to mind, How great is the pain going on without him, I guess it heals with time. So many memories he left behind, We recall the way he sang, The way he danced, Of all the happy times we had. We've seen him suffer great pain, And knew the end was near, God took our loved one up above, Bringing many a silent tear. Each passing day we think of you, Wishing you were here, So much of you will never die, In our memory you are near. What we would give if we could say, Hello Dad in the same old way, To hear your voice, see you smile, To sit with you and chat awhile. So you who have a father, Cherish him with care, For you'll never know the heartache, Till you see his vacant chair.

In Memoriam GREENE In loving memory of a dear Friend Raymond Greene Died April 28, 1983 age 26 years Twenty years have come and gone, We did not think it was that long, A big strong man, we watched go down, We could do nothing, only sit and frown. A disease in which no cure is found, And many more is still taken from our town. Little did we know when we gathered that day, What we would be told of our friend Ray, That God had taken a heart of gold, A friend we thought with us would grow old. At weekly meetings, we stand in silence, For our fellow Kin, our dear departed, As we grow old and turn to grey, We think of you in the same old way. Many memories have come and gone, Your vacant place we still look on, A very young man who wanted to stay, We'll remember that when we pray. Some say time heals all sorrow, So we'll carry on into tomorrow, Until the day we'll meet again, And call you our dear friend. Always remembered and never forgotten by your friends - Kinsmen Club of Witless Bay and area. - April 28, 2003

Peacefully sleeping, resting at last, The world's weary troubles and trials are past, In silence you suffered, in patience you bore, Till God called you home to suffer no more. Grandmother Dear Grandmother, you are not forgotten, Though on earth you are no more, Still in memory you are with us, As you always were before.

In Memoriam MADDEN In loving memory of Lucy A. Madden Dec. 24, 1919 April 27, 2002 One year has passed since that sad day, When one we loved was called away; God took her home, it was His will, But in our hearts she liveth still. A mother's love is something That no one can explain, It is made of deep devotion And of sacrifice and pain, It is endless and unselfish And enduring come what may For nothing can destroy it Or take that love away... It is patient and forgiving When all others are forsaking, And it never fails or falters Even though the heart is breaking... It believes beyond believing When the world around condemns, And it glows with all the beauty Of the rarest, brightest gems... It is far beyond defining, It defies all explanation, And it still remains a secret Like the mysteries of creation... A many splendored miracle Man cannot understand And another wondrous evidence Of God's tender guiding hand. We have only a memory, dear mother, We cherish our whole life through; But the sweetness will live forever As we treasure the memory of you. Lovingly remembered by sons: Kevin & Gerry & daughters Shirley, Theresa, Dianne, Marion, Francene & families. - April 28, 2003

Time may wipe out many things, But this they wipe out never, The memory of those happy days When we were all together. Forever loved & sadly missed by wife Helen & children Patricia, Jim, Shirley, Dave, John, Bob, Ken, Tina, Heather & their families. - April 28, 2003

In Memoriam MAHON In memory of my Father William Patrick Mahon who passed away April 28, 2000 Dad Three years ago today, God came and took you away. I wasn't there to hold your hand, As you went to the Promised Land. I know you are in a better place, And there is a smile upon your face. When you left me that sad day, I knew the pain was here to stay. But Dad, please remember, Life has a beginning, It has no end, So until we meet again my friend. I'll always love you!

(Mencius) It has been a year since you left us, But you are still very much in our hearts. You were our stillness, our constant in a busy, crazy world. You were the centre of our family gatherings. We miss your quirky sense of humour and your perspective on the world around us. You did not leave us without a struggle. And your suffering, though mercifully brief, Broke our hearts to witness. We hope your spirit has been set free and you are at peace. Your spirit lives on in all of us. We miss you, Dad.

In Memoriam SQUIRES In loving memory of a dear Wife, Mother Grandmother Great-grandmother Carol Ann Born Sept. 29, 1937 Passed away suddenly April 28, 2001 Wife: There is someone who misses you sadly, And finds the time long since you went, There is someone who thinks of you always, And tries to be brave and content. Gone is the face we loved so dear, Silent the voice we loved to hear; `Tis sad, but true, we wonder why, The best are always the first to die. Mother: Within our home where all seemed bright And took from us a shining light. We miss that light and ever will Her vacant place there's none to fill. In our hearts your memory lingers, Sweetly tender, fond and true, There is not a day, dear mother, That we do not think of you. Some sweet day we will meet again. Always remembered and sadly missed by husband Ted, daughters Karen, Darlene, Valerie, son Jamie and their families. - April 28, 2003

In Memoriam TRAVERSE In loving memory of our Mother and Wife Clara A. Traverse who died April 30, 2002 Our lives go on without you, And nothing is the same, We have to hide our heartache When someone speaks your name. Sad are the hearts that love you, Silent the tears that fall, Living our lives without you Is the hardest part of all. You did so many things for us, Your heart was kind and true And when we needed someone We could always count on you. The special years will not return When we were all together But with the love within our hearts You will walk with us forever. What we would give if we could say Hi Mom, in the same old way, To hear your voice, see your smile To sit with you and chat awhile. So you who have a mother Cherish her with care For you'll never know the heartache Till you see her vacant chair. Forever remembered, always loved and sadly missed by daughters Theresa, Beverley, Ruby, Ella; and husband Eric. - April 30, 2003
