To the community of Stettler

I would like to thank everyone for the special place you held for my parents Glenn & Genevieve Cruikshank. They arrived in Stettler in 1965 and called Stettler home for 57 years. Their involvement in the community ranged from the Canadian Cancer Society, the Stettler Apollo Lodge, the Stettler Help Line, the Anglican Church Women, the RCMP, the Stettler Senior’s Choir and Lutheran Choir, the Geneology Club and many more organizations. I want to extend my deepest thanks to Stettler Homecare and Elaine, Tanya and the incredible staff at Paragon Place. Your professionalism, compassion and care for Glenn made an easy transition into life at Paragon Place. I couldn’t have asked for better care and support for him. As well, I personally would like to thank ‘The Senators and their wives,’ the AGT men, the Lutheran Church and Dad’s devoted neighbors for your kindness over the years.

Come To Me by Rhonda Braswell

 

God saw you getting tired

and a cure was not to be

so he put his arms around you

and whispered, "Come to Me"

 

With tearful eyes we watch you

and saw you pass away

and although we loved you dearly

we could not make you stay.

 

A Golden heart stopped beating

hard working hands at rest.

God broke our hearts to prove

He only takes the best.

 

It’s lonesome here without you

We miss you so each day,

Our lives aren’t the same

Since you went away.

 

When days are sad and lonely,

And everything goes wrong,

We seem to hear you whisper,

“Cheer up and carry on.”

 

Each time we see your picture,

You seem to smile and say,

“Don’t cry, I’m in God’s keeping,

We’ll meet again someday.”
