Until the shadows
from this earth are cast;
Until he gathers in His sheaves at last;
Until the twilight gloom is over past -
Good night!

Until the Easter glory lights the skies;
Until the dead in Jesus shall arise,
And He shall come,
but not in lowly guise -
Good night!

Until made beautiful by Love Divine,
Thou in the likeness
of the Lord shall shine,
And he shall bring I


that golden crown of thine -
Good night!

Only "good night," beloved
not "farewell!"
A little while, and all I
His saints shall dwell
In hallowed union, indivisible -
Good night!

Until we meet again before His throne,
Clothed in the spotless robe
He gives His own,
Until we know even
as we are known -
Good night!

My dearly beloved brother, the time has come for us to part. I can't
believe you are gone. I miss you so much. Rest in peace, your strife is
over.
Your loving sister, Maude and family

HEAVEN'S GROCERY STORE:
In walking down life's highway a long time ago,
One day I saw a sign that read, "Heaven's Grocery Story,"
As I got a little closer, the door came open wide,
I saw a host of angels that were standing everywhere,
One handed me a basket and said, "My child shop with care."
Everything a Christian needed was in that store.
And all you couldn't carry, you could come back
for the next day for more.
First I got some patience:
Love was in the same row.
Further down was understanding, you heed that wherever you go.
I got a box or two of faith.
Than I started up to the counter to pay my grocery bill.









For I thought I had everything; to do my master's will.
As I went up the aisle, I say prayer and just had to put that in
For I knew when I stepped outside, I would run into sin.
Peace and Joy were plentiful; they were on the last shelf.
I just couldn't miss the Holy Ghost; for it was all over the place.
I stopped to get some strength, courage, to help me run this race,
By then, my basket was full
But I remembered I needed some grace.
I didn't forget salvation, for salvation... that was tree..
So I tried to get enough for both you and me.
Songs and praises were hanging near, so I just helped myself
Than I said to the angel, "Now, how much do I owe/"
He just smiled and said, "Just use them wherever you go,
For Jesus Christ paid your bill a long time ago."
Rest in peace Ken, your step-children, grands and great-grands

Daddy... You were more a father than a grandfather to me. You have
done your part, so God saw it fit to call you to rest. I shall see you in the
morning. Rest in eternal peace in the arms of Jesus.
Your loving granddaughter, Gloric
and great-grands Angel Jr., Allegr
and "the old man" Aquino Bonell;

TRIBUTE TO OUR CO-WORKER AND FRIEND
INSPECTOR KENNETH VARLACK
Our Father Knows Best
On this solemn occasion, the co-workers and friends at Public Workl
Department, especially those in the Engineering Division where he worked
for the past nineteen years, until his recent illness and death, hereb3
express our condolences to his entire family. We were particularly grate
ful for his contribution as Trade Inspector on several government projects
Words sometimes fail us when death comes, but when it comes to th4
relief of our loved ones from pain and suffering, we often comfort ou
hearts with the words, "Thank God they are out of their suffering.'
However there will always be a void that only time can heal, therefore, le
God comfort your hearts in the days, months and years ahead. Ou
Father does know best!
Your co-workers and friends at Public Work









perhapss you sent a lovely card,
or sat quietly in a chair.
Perhaps you sent a floral piece,
if so, we saw it there.
perhaps you spoke the kindest words,
as any friend could say.
perhaps you were not there at all,
Just thought of us that day.
C\Matever you did to console our hearts,
(C e thank you so much, whatever the part.

Refreshments will be served
at 2E26 West Caret Bay after the Interment
