In memoriam

GAYLARD, Gus. Dad, thank you for the awesome Gift of Your Life! There really are no words to convey what you mean to me and how much your life has shaped me (but I know you know)! I will always treasure all that you have instilled. I can see clearly now. In spirit always - Carol.

GAYLARD, Gus. One year ago today we did our morning walk, and always laughed and talked. Little did we know it was almost time for you to go. I miss you so much every day my precious husband and best friend. It was a huge shock but an honour to be with you at the end. You left the way you always wished you could. With no suffering or pain. The memories of our life and good times together will last forever and ever. I will always love you. Until we meet again, rest in peace my dear Gus. Cathy

GAYLARD, Gus. Photos of you are on my computer, on the fridge and cupboard door, but your fatherly love is deeply treasured in my heart forever more. Time passes but the memories, love and life you left seem more alive than ever. What a life! What a legend! What a Dad! Your youngest (sybokkie) Karen.

GAYLARD, Gus. You taught me about what's really important in life, about integrity and family. You always put our happiness before your own. You were always there to share our joy and our sorrows. You never interfered with our decisions. You allowed us to grow by making our own mistakes, but you were always there to cushion a fall. I wish you could've been here a little longer to teach Kix what you taught me. Nothing will ever be the same without you and its torment to think how much time is ahead without you here with us. The only thing that helps is that I still feel you very close to me - I know that you wouldn't even allow death to separate us from you. So you know that Ma will never be alone, rest in peace my precious Dad. Ange.

KILIAN, Maude. In loving memory of a dear wife and mother. Miss you. Ferdie.
