God saw you getting tired,
When a cure was not to be
So he put his arms around you
And whispered “Come to Me”.
So when we saw you sleeping
So peaceful, free from pain,
We could not wish you back
To suffer that again.
Prayers were said at 11:00 a.m. on Tuesday, April 10 at Notre Dame du Lac Roman Catholic Church, Lac du Bonnet, MB with Funeral Mass following at 12:00 p.m. Rev. Fr. Mirek Szynal presiding. Interment followed in Lac du Bonnet Cemetery.

The family would like to convey heartfelt thanks to Fr. Szynal, Drs. Hussain and Demsas and nursing staff of Selkirk General Hospital; Dr. Greyling and Pinawa nursing staff. Thanks also to our family and friends for their kindness and support.

In tears we saw you sinking
We watched you fade away.
You suffered much in silence,
You fought so hard to stay.
You faced your task with courage,
Your spirit did not bend,
But still you kept on fighting,
Until the very end.Print This Obituary & Condolences
