A Special Thank You.

Our family would like to send Special thanks to the following people

To Dr. Watchorn for his care and compassion during Dads illness. You helped us fight with everything possible.The emergency room Doctors. The clinic medical staff for always being so helpful and making Dad laugh. The Ambulance attendants and Golden Fire Rescue for the transportation to and from the hospital, with special thanks to Pascale for always checking in on Dad.

All the nurses at the hospital for their exceptional care of our Dad, Especially Tracy, Guy, Linda, Cheryl, Sara, Gladys, Gale, Crystal, Marianne, Christine and Our Karmela. To all the staff at the hospital for welcoming our large family.

The home care services for helping us set up a room for Dad at the house and their daily visits. Cancer is an awful illness but you all made the journey a little easier.

To the Golden Bakery for putting together the breakfast for us on the morning of Dads passing.

To everyone that brought food and flowers. For all the loving phone calls, the text Messages, and the beautiful Facebook messages. A special thank you to everyone that stopped by the house with kindness and love for our family. Also to everyone that came into Kicking Horse Embroidery with condolences and hugs. There is no way we can express our gratitude. We are truly blessed to have so many caring people in our lives.

As per Dads wishes we will not be having a funeral. We will be having a Celebration of life on May long weekend next year. He wants everyone to remember the happy times, the special times, and the wonderful memories.

We are preparing an obituary to honour our Dad I Husband I Papa. It is hard to put his 84 years into a few paragraphs.

Thanks to each and every one of you, Helen, Roger (Diana), Randy (Beth), Maxine, Glen (Chiara), Susan (Jerry), Grandchildren: Tyrel (Megan), Eryn (Murray), Jason (Jamie), Kerrie (Matt), Cole (Pam), Eddie (Cailyn), Karmela (Matt), Tiana, Kevin (Greta), Raylen, Rayanne (Damian).
