A poem for a loved one who has passed

Posted on August 19th, 2016 by


I’m Free
(Author ~ Unknown)
Don’t grieve for me, for now I’m free
I’m following the path God has laid you see.
I took his hand when I heard Him call,
I turned by back and left it all.
I could not stay another day.
To laugh, to love, to work or play.
Tasks left undone must stay that way.
I found that peace at the close of the day.
If my parting has left a void,
Then fill it with remembered joys.
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss.
Oh yes, these things I too will miss.
Be not burdened with times of …

to “Pilot Brian” for spending time Saturday afternoon telling us about his airplane and glider at his Invermere airport hanger.  And especially for letting us sit in his plane … so cool.  Much appreciated Brian.  You’re the best!

to the lady resident who came to help me arrange to get a locksmith tow truck so that I could re-enter my locked car with the engine running on Athalmer highway near the police station. Also big Cheers to Club Towing for the help, at no expense. That is just one example of why Invermere is a great community!

to the people who think it is okay to yell, swear, get mad at or make uncalled for hand gestures at receptionists for absolutely no reason. Taking your anger out on someone who is doing the very best they can to assist you by following their job requirements as well as apologizing (profusely) for something that is not their fault and/or have no control over is extremely rude. Just because the receptionist is the first person you see when walking into a business does not mean you should blast them …

Being rerouted onto Westside Road due to a serious accident was stressful enough having to deal with dusty, windy roads etc. Then what do I see in my rear view mirror but a vehicle passing me on a bend, while driving through a cloud of dust due to heavy car traffic. Then he had to quickly slide in between me and a truck in front because he almost got hit by a car he didn’t see due to the cloud of dust? Why, what’s the hurry?? Smarten up people!!!

to Petro Canada for having the last free air hose in the world. It filled my third flat bike tire of the day and allowed me to pedal up Peters Hill to get home. Wouldn’t have had to do it without you – my wife would have picked me up!

Double Cheers to the men from Lake Windermere Alliance Church who left their meeting to come to my house to help me late on August 10th. Cheers CI for rallying the troops. I know it only took you 10 – 15 min., but what a blessing to not have to do all of that all by myself. My family and friends who do not live here in the Valley were blessed too. We appreciate you for your ongoing support and encouragement.
