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, and still you kept on fighting, until the very end. God saw you getting tired, that a cure was not to be, So He put His arms around you, and whispered, "Come with me." So when we saw you sleeping, so peaceful, free from pain, We could not wish you back, to suffer that again. Thank You It is with deep appreciation that we pass along this heartfelt thank you to the following people, who over the past few years and up to the sudden passing of Reg, have been there for us, then and now: To Dr. Christie for your care, compassion and understanding.

A heartfelt thank you to all our family and friends for being there for us at our time of need. For the flowers, cards, phone calls and delicious food you provided.
