Because of her, our own small word will never be the same, And all our hearts are filled with love when people speak her name...But though her face may not be seen among us here today, Her love is felt in all the hearts she changed along the way. With sympathy to John & Family. - Holly Bolton, Sudbury, Ontario.

God looked around his garden and found an empty place. He then looked down upon this earth and saw your tired face. He put his arms around you and lifted you to rest. God's garden must be beautiful - he always takes the best. He knew that you were suffering. He knew you were in pain. He knew that you would never get well on earth again. He saw that the road was getting rough and the hills are hard to climb. So he closed your weary eyelids and whispered "Peace be thine". It has broke our hearts to lose you, but you didn't go alone, for part of us went with you, the day God called you home. We will miss you Aunt Miriam. Marty & Wanda Bolton & Family
