"Ma", you meant so much to so many people. It's still hard to believe you're gone. You taught us so much about family and true love. You will always be the cornerstone of our family. We pay tribute to you by loving each other.

Ed, it's me your neighbor. I want you to know I quit smoking June 26, 2003 and here it is almost 1 year since. I owe this to you. I tried so many times and just knowing you and all your battles with smoking is what helped me. In a news paper article you said if you could just help stop one person from lighting up, or help one person to quit, then you would be happy. Well, I am one of those people. I o

Daddy, you are so brave. I almost forgot to say "goodnight and I love You". But, you know that you will always be in my heart. I remember talkting to you on the morning that you passed on and what we said. I can still see you sitting on the sofa and the pain I felt for you. My prayers were answered not because of my selfishness but, because of the love I have for you. You no longer suffer. You ar

On this day, I remember my Father. he was a wonderful man. He worked hard and his main concerns were the well beings of others. He always said that he was "alright". God Bless his as he moves on to be with our Lord. His work here is finished.

Norma-Jean You will live on in your family's hearts forever. After a long difficult battle with Emphysema, my sister passed away at the young age of 50. She courageously fought for years to gain the strength to have a lung transplant so she could devote the remainder of her life to helping others that were suffering from illness. Never seeing people with her eyes, only with her heart - the way she wishe

My dad passed away on February 12th, 2004 after a long and painful battle with lung cancer at the age of 56. I still can't believe he is gone away from us. I never realized until the funeral the effect he had on others around him. My dad somehow always brought the best out of everyone, never had an enemy in his life and was everything I could have ever asked for in a father. Cancer has effected us all

To my Dad whose time was too short on this earth. My purpose for writing this letter is that everyone who reads this will quit smoking TODAY. My Dad put it off and put it off until it was too late. There was always something going on that prevented him from quitting. He was diagnosed with terminal lung cancer and all the years of procrastination had caught up with him. There were so many things left

Known well by only by a few hundred people, my widowed mother had the sort of impact on a few that sends ripples out to thousands of others. She made simple human kindness the centrepiece of her life. Housebound with emphysema for her last few years until her death at the age of 66 in 2003, she worked the telephone and the postal service to full advantage, maintaining contact with old friends and extend

A great lady died today. She wasnt a leader or a famous doctor, a war hero or a sports figure. She wasnt a business tycoon, and you will never see her name in the financial pages. But, she was one of the greatest ladies that ever lived...She was my grandmother. I guess you might say that she was a person who was never interested in getting credit or receiving honours. She did things like pay bills on
