Our family would like to say a big thank you to Dauphin CancerCare & Palliative Care for the wonderful care and support they gave our mother and our family.
Don't remember me with sadness,
Don't remember me with tears,
Remember all the laughter
We've shared throughout the years.
Now I am contented
That my life it was worthwhile,
Knowing that I passed along the way
I made somebody smile.
When you are walking down the street
and you've got me on your mind,
I'm walking in your footsteps
Only half a step behind.
So please don't be unhappy
Just because I'm out of sight
Remember that I'm with you
Each morning, noon and night.
A memorial service for Velma was held on Friday, January 31, 2020 at 2:00 pm in the McCreary Community Centre in McCreary.
