A life is like a flower
It blooms then fades away

But it leaves a lasting beauty

In our hearts from day to day

It leaves plans not completed

Things undone.


The family would like to thank Dr. Haddad, Elizabeth, Bev A. and the nursing staff at Bluewater Health ICU for their great care and compassion.
