In Memoriam

On November 5th, after Sunday worship, a scattering of the ashes of Graham Walker, husband of Kathy O'Halloran, took place at the Bird Sanctuary (Parc des rapides) in LaSalle.

The funeral will be held at 4:15 p.m. on Sunday, November 12th at Laurent Thériault funeral home, 512 de l'Eglise, Verdun 514 769 3867 (Parking lot and ramp available). The service will be followed by a reception at SouthWest  Mission, 631 Melrose (corner Verdun) from 5 to 7 p.m.

When I come to the end of the road
And the sun has set for me
I want no rites in a gloom-filled room.
Why cry for a soul set free?
Miss me a little but not too long
And not with your head bowed low.
Remember the love that we once shared,
Miss me but let me go.
For this is a journey that we all must take
And each must go alone.
It's all a part of the Master's plan,
A step on the road to home.
When you are lonely and sick of heart,
Go to the friends we know
And bury your sorrows in doing good deeds.
Miss Me But Let me Go!
