Almost a year has gone by since the last time I saw Grandma. She was the "heart" of our family, the centre, and everyone drew from her. We lost her in November from a long undiagnosed battle with emphysema. I think, if she had known, she would have quit smoking. I miss her everyday and it hurts so much that I can't share my days with her. Every fall, I made my last trip before the snow flies to see her. T

As a journeyman steamfitter, I've worked around and with asbestos. As a result, I have a condition called pleural plaque. As I understand it, my lungs are encapsulated in a nonelastic membrane. On top of that, I've smoked since I was a kid. When I participated in Elmer's lung capacity measurement survey at SPAH, I pegged the meter. I know that my harmonica is the reason I'm not walking around pushing

My grandma, i can't believe you are gone..its hard to believe it doesn't even seem like your gone cause i don't think it has kicked in yet, even though it has been seven months. It was hard watching her in the hospital, if she was here today she probably wouldn't have even known what happened in those two weeks she were there. The first night she was there i was there the whole time, it was so hard. The d

Antoni Grzegorczyk will be remembered as a man who was a great husband to Janina, a great father to Iwona, Bozena, Renata and Anetta, a father-in-law to Robert, Bryan, Mike and Elvis, and a great granddad to Aiden, Chloe and Konrad.

Alan will be sorely missed after his passing April 28, 2008 in Hamilton, Ontario. He often spoke fondly of his son and family while we worked at Bell in Dorval. Alan was able to react to and reason out many technical problems in a calm proficient manner, yet his booming voice still echoes in the halls.

If Roses grow in Heaven, Lord please pick a bunch for me, Place them in my Mother's arms and tell her they're from me. Tell her I love her and miss her, and when she turns to smile, place a kiss upon her cheek and hold her for awhile.

My father died 1 year ago today, he had struggled with COPD and When I remember the day my father died the heartache is still so strong.

Hey Dad. I just wanted you to know how much we miss you every day. Although we were young when you passed away, we will never stop missing you. Little things always come up that remind me of you - like when I look at the Tim McGraw CD you bought me, or hear a certain song or smell a certain smell. We know you are in a better place now - a place where you can breathe easily, a place where you can go ou

I only just recently learned of Wilf's passing. He was a dear close friend of the family and my grandmother's companion later in her life (after his wife passed). He was a kind generous person who went that extra mile for anyone that crossed his path. After my grandmother's passing in 1990, connection with Wilf was intermittent. I will miss his smile and lengthy chats!
