Silent thoughts of time together
Hold memories that will last forever.
Always remembered by the rest of the family.

LOFTUS, Marjorie – October 30, 2007
We often think of bygone days
When we were all together.
The family chain is broken now,
But memories will live forever.
Sadly missed along life’s way
Quietly remembered every day.
No longer in our life to share
But in our hearts, she’s always there.
She sleeps in God’s beautiful garden,
In sunshine of perfect peace;
We miss her, oh how much,
But realize God knew best.
He let us have her many years,
Then gently bade her rest.
Lovingly remembered by the family.

Reynolds  -  In loving memory of a husband, father, grandfather Elden July 1928 - 2014
and son, Scott 1965 - October 2016
Another year has come and gone
And heartaches, tears and memory keep them near.
Those we have loved don’t go away.
They walk beside us everyday,
Unseen, unheard, still missed,
Still loved and very dear.
Sincerely Fran and children,
Barb, Russell, Dennis, Wanda and their families

Memoriam - Amy Johnston – Cobbett (15 years without you.)
They say there is a reason, They say that time will heal,
But neither time nor reason, Will change the way I feel,
For no-one knows the heartache, That lies behind our smiles,
No-one knows how many times, We have broken down and cried,
We want to tell you something, So there won't be any doubt,
You're so wonderful to think of, But so hard to be without.
Love Mom, Dad, Angie, Rick, Nan, Kevin, Angela, Greg, Ryan, Nicole and Melissa

MOREAU, Gilbert –
On our 53rd wedding anniversary July 25, 1964
In my heart your memory lingers,

Forever to last.

Jacobs, Donald - who passed away July 19, 2002
We think of you in silence,
We often speak your name,
But all we have are memories,
And your picture in a frame.
Your resting place we visit,
And put flowers there with care,
But no one knows the heartache,
As we turn and leave you there.
Always remembered by Muriel,
your sons, daughters and all their families

Do you fly an airplane???
My husband, Bill Orpin, was an avid and dedicated pilot. He flew a bright orange bush plane. Cessna 185, CF-SKC. In the summer time we lived at the Woodland Beach family cottage during the summer and Bill flew back and forth to his office in Thornhill, right by Buttonville Airport. We used the landing strip located in a farmer's field on the 11th of Flos - now Flos Road 10 West in Springwater Township. owned, at that time, by Willy Mueller who had been a Luftwaffe pilot.
Bill would let me know he was home by "buzzing" the cottage, pitch his prop and ‘wag’ his wings to signal it was time to pick him up at the airfield.  Sometimes it would be very late, almost dark - and I'd have to park the car strategically to throw light on the strip.  On early foggy mornings, he'd disappear into the ground fog as he taxied up the slight hill and then he'd suddenly appear, roaring his way up and away, the cows in the barn across the road lowing in protest at the sudden sound. By the way, we had an annual fly-in at that farmer’s field. Various pilots in the group had been pilots in WW2, some for the RAF, some with Luftwaffe.  The object of the war was never discussed; all those guys cared about was flying and comparing the merits of Spitfires and Fokkers. My husband had Alzheimer's and forgot so many things but never SKC and flying. During this last year of his life, when certain medical procedures were agony for him, I was able to distract him by holding him very tight and taking him far away from the present by giving him word pictures of his flying days, his walk-arounds, preparing for his flight, take-off and what he saw as he flew over that awesome landscape. For this very reason I would like to find a pilot who would be able and willing to do a fly-by and a farewell salute when we have his ashes interred in the Allenwood Cemetery on July 26, 10 am, this summer.

ON THE ANNIVERSARY OF THE DAY YOU WENT AWAY
Today marks the anniversary
Of the day we lost you,
And for a time it felt as though
Our lives had ended too.
But loss has taught us many things
And now we face each day,
With hope and happy memories
To help us on our way.
And though we're full of sadness
That you're no longer here,
Your influence still guides us
And we still feel you near.
What we shared will never die
It lives within our hearts,
Bringing strength and comfort
While we are apart.
Remembering our parents & grandparents

Certainly the family of Muriel Jacobs have memories of her that will last forever … but now more than ever we also have memories of appreciation for the many blessings and kindnesses that were bestowed on Mom over the years and on the family at the time of her passing. We extend our most sincere appreciation to the neighbours and friends for the food, floral tributes, charitable donations, cards, visits and calls of condolence; to the caregivers at Hillcrest Nursing Home for their considerate and mindful attention to Mom’s comfort; to the staff at Lynn-Stone Funeral Home for their thoughtful outreach in our time of sorrow; to Rev. Lois Lyons for such kind and encouraging words at Mom’s funeral service; to the Women’s Institute for the memorial service and dinner; to the United Church Women for the delicious luncheon following the service; and to all who reached out to us in love and compassion. Mom lived her life fully engaged with her family, the church and the community. Her life’s lessons will live on in our hearts along with the memory of such a caring community who work so considerately to support its members.
The Jacobs’ Family.

In Memory of Gladys Ritchie, June 10, 1977
Mom, did the sun shine brighter,
or was the shy a deeper shade of blue,
or was it just a different world
when we shared our lives with you?

but that's how long our broken hearts
have loved and yearned for you.
Forever missed by
Herb, Bob, Mary, Sandy,
