    It is with sadness that I have read the passing of Norm. The last time I saw Norm was at the post office boxes picking up his mail. I talked to him briefly.
    Life is so precious that we have to
    enjoy every minute of every day. Again we
    are very sorry. I will not be able to attend Norm’s service on Sunday due to another engagement.

    “God saw you getting tired
    and a cure was not to be.
    So he put his arms around you
    and whispered “Come to Me”.
    A golden heart stopped beating,
    hard working hands now rest.
    God broke our hearts to prove to us
    He only takes the best.

    Life is but a stopping place,
    A pause in what’s to be,
    A resting place along the road,
    To sweet eternity.”

    So sorry for your loss.
    Our deepest sympathy at this very sad time.

    Debbie, Cody & Logan

    Dear Auntie Al,

    I just read today that Uncle Norm passed. I’m still trying to get over the shock. The last time that I was able to visit was about 6 years ago and we went for dinner. I wish we kept in touch better, I’ll miss him lots and have lots of memories of him from when I was little, and those are the thoughts and memories that I will pass on to my children. Lots of hugs and kisses to you and the rest of the family. Please keep in touch. Our email is msreis@telus.net or phone 250-632-3223.
    Love Kim’s girls xoxox
