At the rising of the sun and at its going down, we remember him.

At the blowing of the wind and the chill of winter, we remember him.

At the opening of the buds and in the rebirth of spring, we remember him.

At the blueness of the skies and in the warmth of summer, we remember him.

At the rustling of the leaves and in the beauty of autumn, we remember him.

At the beginning of the year and when it ends, we remember him.

As long as we live, he too will live; for he is now a part of us, as we remember him.

When we are weary and in need of strength, we remember him.

When we are lost and sick at heart, we remember him.

When we have joy we crave to share, we remember him.

When we have decisions that are difficult to make, we remember him.

When we have achievements that are based on his, we remember him.

As long as we live, he too will live; for he is now a part of us.

Dear Brenda and Family,

Bob and I were so saddened to hear of Nyman's passing. He was my dentist from the age of 6 until he retired; more than 30 years. He became Bob's dentist when we married and Bob has never liked a dentist more!

Nyman was not only the most gentle dentist in the world, he has a kind and honorable man. We are better for having known him.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you all. May your fond memories bring you some solace in the time to come.

Lauren and Bob (Finn) Jesus

Dear Family,
Please accept my condolences for the loss of your loved one.
I would like to share a moment way back in time when Helice and I were just teenagers and we used to go in her fathers office and pretend we were the dentist and patient Lol. I have fond memories of swimming in that nice big pool. :) These are the memories that I will always remember! We all have our own special memories of Mr. Halfond. :) He was a blessing to have known at one time in my life and left me with such wonderful memories of him that will live on in my heart. :)
