When tomorrow starts without me
and I’m not here to see…
If the sun should rise and find your
eyes filled with tears for me

I wish so much you wouldn’t cry
the way you did today…
While thinking of the many things
we didn’t get to say.

I know how much you love me,
as much as I love you…
And each time you think of me,
I know you’ll miss me, too.

When tomorrow starts without me,
don’t think we’re far apart…
For every time you think of me,
I’m right here in your heart.

Donna and family, I was shocked and saddened hearing of Ron’s passing. Working side by side for a good 10 years, he was nothing but the best support and resource a rookie could ask for! So knowledgeable, patient and resourceful. More of a friend than you could ask for. The world has lost a caring and a true quality gentleman. Linda and I are so sorry for your loss. You’re all in our thoughts and prayers. Our deepest sympathies...

Dear Donna,
I was saddened to hear the passing of your husband from Irene. I was honoured to know him as a man of great character. I remember him and Stan used to tell stories and crack jokes together. My condolences to you and the rest of the family. From Christine Karnitzschky.
