Memorial tributes to the Bulkley Lodge.


The light was gone

It had withered and died

He lay there so still

I just stood there and cried.

He had no feelings

I had been hurt

He stood at the top

While I knelt in the dirt.

He stared blankly ahead

My vision was broken

He spoke not a word

Left not even a token.

He left me alone

I cried and I cried

He left me alone

My father has died.

Mel is survived by his loving family:

Children Wayne (Val) of Prince George, B.C.; Coleen (Pat) Kilsby of Kitimat, B.C.; Don (Carolyn) of Coquitlam, B.C.; Lisa (Roger) of Telkwa, B.C.; Dale of Fort St. John, B.C.
