Arrangements were entrusted to PIERCY’S FUNERAL HOME AND CREMATORIUM of Courtenay, B.C. A special poem written by granddaughter Sarah as an expression of how many of us feel:


Love & Death


At times life is weak and you

just can’t fight anymore.

I see a figure in my mind,

a sliver outline, how I feel

the pain of seeing you fade

right in front of my eyes.

I think to myself you may fade

away, but I won’t say

good-bye,

Through these eyes of tears

so instead I’ll have to be strong and say,

“see ya soon”,

Because death can’t break

our bond, our friendship,

our love or the amazing family that you have created.

I love you always and forever.


Love Sarah
