March 28, 1956 – January 20, 2012
My life has changed forever and I shall never meet another companion and friend as beautiful. Dolores was and is my first and greatest love, and I will miss her dearly.
She loved deeply and gave freely of herself, asking nothing in return. I cannot thank her enough for the love, joy, and care she has given me in 35 years of marriage. I can only hope that I had returned as much.
Dolores cherished family, neighbours and friends, and treasured her home and gardens. She found comfort in the Bulkley Valley and the people who made it such a special place, never wishing to roam outside its boundaries.
Dolores left too quickly, too soon, with too many things left unsaid and undone. I look forward to the day when we will meet again and continue our journey that we had only just started here on earth. Until that time, sleep well my love in the arms of God.
I will love you forever – Bernie
Sons – Jason (Joscelyn – Grandchildren – Tosh and Toan), Phillip (Tabatha)
We will celebrate Dolores’s time with us as she requested, in the Spring when life begins anew.
My undying gratitude to Dolores’s sister Alice, sister-in-law Janet, daughters-in-law Tabatha and Joscelyn and close friends for spending so much time comforting and caring for Dolores.
Special thanks to Dr. Bizz Bastian, Alice from Cancer Services, Sandra and Teryl from Home and Community Care, Tinka, Janice, and everyone at Pharmasave.
Everyone’s comfort, care, and understanding shown to Dolores, myself and family was so much appreciated during this difficult time. The services you provide are invaluable.
