Peter and Helen Dyck
Occasionally, "Aunt Kay" would come from Alberta to the
Fraser Valley and visit our family on the farm. It was always
an exciting time when she arrived. There were so many of
us children to welcome her. It was as if she were a movie star.
Everyone would be asking her questions and she wouldn't know
who to answer first. We definitely ran circles around her.
As we grew up, some of us moved to Alberta. We were able to
visit her in her own home and enjoy her hospitality. But soon she
moved to BC in the Fraser Valley and once again there were many
miles between us. However, this did not hinder our lines of
Aunt Kay has always been an encouragement to us to walk in the Light of the Lord. It has truly been a blessing for us to know how much she loved the Lord as much as she did. Her prayers for us did not go unanswered and we have been held in the Palm of His Hands to this
So, Aunt Kay, on this, your "Promoted to Glory" day, we thank you for your love and many prayers. We love you dearly,
Peter Dyck's Children
