Our mother kept a garden

A garden of the heart

She planted all the good things

That gave our lives a start

She turned us to the sunshine

And encouraged us to dream

Fostering and nurturing

The seeds of self-esteem

And when the winds and rain came,

She protected us enough

But not too much because she knew

We’d need to stand up strong and tough,

Her constant good example

Always taught us right from wrong

Markers for our pathway

That will last a lifetime long

We are our mother’s garden

We are her legacy.

We invite you to an open house tea at the Old Church on the corner of King Street and First Avenue on October 27, from 2 – 4 pm.

In lieu of flowers, please donate to the Smithers Palliative Care Unit – Box 370, Smithers BC V0J 2N0

The family would like to say a special thanks to Dr. Bastian and the team of palliative care nurses for their support during this difficult time.
