    I will miss seeing your smiling face and our many chit chats when you came to Shoppers Drug Mart to see the staff and make your purchases. God Bless and keep you in his loving arms along with Nick and Debra. We never did get to go on those holidays we talked about but I am sure you are on a beautiful one now that is much more than what we discussed.
    Love you and will keep you in my prayers and thoughts.

    Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
