SUSAN FLANAGAN It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved wife and mother, Susan Flanagan, following a courageous struggle with cancer. Susan was born in Halifax on August 26, 1952. She came to Winnipeg at a later date where she was employed with Naylor Communications. Predeceased by Stanley Harvie and mother Florence Orchard, she is survived by her beloved husband Donald; two daughters, Tara Dawn and husband John Fiorentino of Montreal, Melissa Margaret of Winnipeg and dear granddaughter Brooke Flanagan; her beloved father Ralph Orchard (Elva) by her sister Muriel Elizabeth (Bonnie) Harvie of Moncton and dear uncle Don Smith of Toronto; numerous relatives and friends. A wonderful wife and mother, she shall be sadly missed. TO THOSE I LOVE AND THOSE WHO LOVED ME When I am gone, release me, let me go I have so many things to see and do, You mustnt tie yourself to me with tears; Be happy that we had so many years. I gave to you my love, you can only guess How much you gave to me in happiness. I thank you for the love you each have shown, But now its time I traveled on alone. So grieve a while for me, if grieve you must; Then let your grief be comforted by trust, Its only for a while that we must part, So bless the memories within your heart. I wont be far away, for life goes on; So if you need me, call and I will come. Though you cant see me or touch me, Ill be near, and if you listen With your heart, youll hear, All of my love around you soft and clear. And then, when you must come this way alone, Ill greet you with a smile and say, Welcome Home.
