                                               “Resting Peacefully”


                         There were a million things I wanted to say to you, 

                                         "Goodbye" was not one of them.

                                                           - Desrae


                             It's hard to turn the page when you know someone

                           won't be in the next chapter, but the story must go on.

                                               - Roy, Russell, Erica & Ruby


                                             Our beloved Wal/Dad/Grandad

                                           Your weary hours and days of pain

                                              Your troubled nights are past

                                                    In our hearts we know,

                                           You have found sweet rest at last

                               -  Love always Grant, Raechel, Alex, Jayden & Zhoe
