Thank you for bringing us home.
Your gift to us was teaching us how important family is.
Your love of life was contagious.
You treasured your parents, your brothers and sisters.
You had such love for Barb, your wife (you treated her like gold).
You were so proud of your girls, Karen and Suzie.
You cherished your hockey memories and firefighter buddies.
You loved the beach, campfires, and singsongs (who could ever forget your 2-string guitar).
You relished your time at the cottage with Hunter (the beagle) at your side.
Moe, you had a friend at every corner and a smile and joke for everyone.
You left us with so many memories, everytime we think of you we smile.
You gave us love everyday and we will carry you in our hearts always.
Love your girls, Barb, Karen and Suzie.
