"FOR OUR DADDY" - October 29, 1977 Twenty five years ago today the Lord took you away,
from your wife, your kids, family and friends, it broke our hearts but we know in the
end, we'll all be together flying high in the sky, being angels like you are when we
die, wait for us daddy and save us a spot, we'll miss you forever and we love you a lot.

KEENAN _ Anne and Max. One year ago today family and friends said their last good byes
to a very beautiful special lady, Anne Keenan (and her dog Max). At the young age of 34
years her passing was very tragic for us all. Anne gave and put everything she had into
life, whether it was the many charities or strangers she met on the street, she always
put in her love and special touch. Anne and Max were survived by fiance Darryl Glass;
father Michael Keenan Sr.; mother Joanne Stone; brothers Michael Jr. and Thomas J.; Aunt
Breige, cousin Maureen, Parents Malcolm and Jeanette Glass, Barry, Sharon and A.J.

Berkson, Irene Iness, she touched so many we could never possibly name them all,
although they and we all have a common bond, missing them so very much, for they are
never far from our hearts. Together we all say to them "Floyd On" The moment you had
passed away My heart had split in two The one side filled with memories The other died
with you I think of you in silence I often speak your name I feel again the bitter blow
That never should have came Each morning when I awake I know that you are gone No one
knows the heartache As I try to carry on My heart still aches in sadness Secret tears
will flow What it meant to lose you No one will ever know My thoughts are always with
you Your place no one can fill In life I loved you dearly In death I love you still They
say time heals everything But I know this isn't so Because it hurts as much today As it

LIGHTFOOT _James Dingwall October 13, 1947 - October 29, 2001 I wish I could turn back

brother and our friend. _ We miss you so very much.
