ARNOTT In loving memory of a precious Daughter, Niece and Cousin April Melanie December 22, 1980 - November 11, 2000 Dear one, your family misses you, Finds time long since you went; Grieving so that you had to go Seeking in prayer for content. To hear your voice and see your smile, To sit with you and talk awhile, To be together in the same old way Would be our greatest wish today. So we`ll be brave, dear April, And pray to God each day, And when He calls us home to you, Your smile will guide the way.

BURDEN In loving memory of a dear Husband Dad, Father-in-law and Poppy Ralph B.

COSTELLO In loving memory of a dear Mother, Mother-in-law, Grandmother and Great-grandmother Elizabeth Costello Nov. 10, 1912 - Nov. 5, 2000 I think of her so often, Her eyes smiling back at me As we chatted and we laughed Over many a cup of tea. Her wit was at the ready, A story waiting to be told Some things about that exceptional lady Just never grew old. She was from another time, When the day's work was started Before the rising of the sun, Ending naught till light departed. Staunch and steadfast was her faith, Her character proud and strong Her many gifts remain with us; Her spirit, it lives on.

MANNING In fond and loving memory of a dear Husband, Father and Grandfather James F. Manning who passed away Nov. 9, 1996 age 77 years Seven long and lonely years have passed Since I last shared your love But I love you now and always will Till we meet in the heavens above. Time speeds on, seven years have passed, Since death its gloom, its shadows cast, Within our home, where all seemed bright, And took from us a shining light. We miss that light, and ever will, His vacant place there`s none to fill, Down here we mourn, but not in vain, For up in Heaven we will meet again. 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. What we would give if we could say Hello, Dad, in the same old way; To hear your voice, see your smile, To sit with you and chat awhile. A little tear falls from my eye, I swallow hard, try not to cry, I think of you so far away, Seven years ago you died today. Still sometimes when I`m all alone, I hope and pray to hear the phone, To hear you say just one more time, That I am loved and you are fine. But on life`s road there`s no return, So now I must try hard to learn, To learn to live and love and do, The very way you taught me to. But mother dear remember this, You for me are truly missed. The world may change from year to year, And friends from day to day, But never will the one I loved, From memory pass away. Ever remembered and sadly missed by wife Mary and five sons: Con, Jim, Gerard, Wayne, Brian and their families. - November 10, 2003
McGRATH In loving memory of a dear Husband, Father, Grandfather and Great-grandfather Bernard McGrath who passed away November 10, 2002 Husband: 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. Time may heal the broken heart, Time may make the wound less sore, But time can never stop the longing, For the loved one gone before. Father: We'll remember you with a smile today, You were not one for tears, We'll reflect instead on memories, Of all the happy years. We'll recall to mind that way you spoke, And all the things you said, Your strength, your stance, the way you walked, We'll remember those instead. Grandfather and Great-grandfather: God, please take a message, To our great pop up above, Tell him we miss him terribly, And give him all our love. Sadly missed and never forgotten, Marie McGrath and family. - November 10, 2003

What we would give if we could say, Hello, Dad, in the same old way, To hear your voice, see your smile, To sit with you and chat awhile.

Of all that life has given me and all that`s left to do I`ll never know a greater gift than the years I spent with you. Remembering you is easy I do it everyday, It`s the loss I feel without you that never goes away.

STONE In fond and loving memory of dear Husband and Father Charles Evan Stone who passed away Nov. 6, 1997 Broken is the family circle, Our dear one is passed away, Passed from earth and earthly darkness, Into bright and perfect day.
