Jennifer and I would like to give a special thank you to the caring and professional staff at the I.W.K. birth unit. Genuine kindness and empathy was given and will not be forgotten. Thank you to the staff of the H.W. Angus Funeral Home for making a difficult period in our lives as easy as possible. Thank you and our apologies to the paramedics for receiving the verbal wrath of a Newfoundland woman in pain. Sometimes idle chatter is the best remedy when healing words are hard to find.

There's magic in mother's touch, And sunshine in her smile There's love in everything she does to make our lives worthwhile We can find both love & courage just by looking in her eyes Her laughter is a source of joy, Her words are warm and wise, There is a kindness & compassion to be found in her embrace And we see the light of Heaven shining from a mother's face.
