With tear-filled eyes we watched her suffer and fade away. Although we loved her deeply, we could not make her stay. A golden heart stopped beating, hard-working hands put to rest. God broke our hearts to prove to us He only takes the best." The family wishes to express their sincere appreciation to the doctors and nurses and the staff of 3rd floor at the Victoria Hospital. Arrangements Entrusted to: VOYAGE FUNERAL HOME & CREMATORIUM 220 Hespeler Ave. at Henderson Hwy. 668-3151
