In Loving Memory of Heidi Lambert (March 12th, 1964-2022)

Heide In Heaven. Happy 59th Birthday...
On March 12th, 59 years ago an Angel was born. Heide Lambert.
Liked and loved by all who knew her. Successful at all she did. Gifted in so many ways. Sadly for all, she left us in 2022 .
While she was my Angel on earth,
Heide is now an Angel in Heaven.
She left us too early!
We are sad but happy she is in a better place.
I am grateful for the 30 + years I shared with her. Heide taught me so much. Love with all your heart. My quest is to live up to her wishes here on earth. Happy Birthday, Heide in Heaven.
We celebrate you and your life.
I will never stop loving you.
Your Partner & Friend.

Preston Wright

This is my tribute to my dear son Preston. He was a funny, happy and care free kid. As the youngest of four, he loved hanging out with & playing with his siblings, 2 brothers and a sister.
He loved camping as a child and then into his adulthood. He liked being in the outdoors. He enjoyed playing hockey as a child and again into his adulthood.

Preston had a big heart, a great laugh and a beautiful smile. I will hold him in my heart forever and I will think of him everyday with love and compassion.

Preston’s mother, Myra.

Anna for Jack

My friend was ridiculously happy in life, so let us celebrate that life rather than weep over death

For Spencer

We miss you so so very much Spenny,
Time has passed and soon we will be pushed into a whole new year, a year that will be completely void of you because it will be the first year that we will never sweet your smile, or hear your voice or share a hug...how we miss you and cherish those moments.
At least last year will have had you in it even though for only a few short months. I love you so much. You will always be in my heart and on my mind.

Timothy Joseph Smith

Hard to believe it’s two years since you passed. I miss your smile, I miss your laugh, I miss the sound of your voice singing to me while playing your guitar. I miss your strength and the talks we had. It’s lonley here without you, you are alive in my heart forever and always💞

Lindsay Margaret Wilson

Precious daughter, it has now been more than 5 years but feels as if I'm in a time warp - like yesterday. It's so hard to keep going without you, even with your brother, your family and your amazing friends who've stayed close. You would be so proud of them all. We get together for your Beach Birthday Party, your Christmas party and stay close all year, every year. So often, a yellow butterfly shows up when we're together, so rare, and we know it's you, as a gift from little Kaylah. All the little children you loved still miss and love you. Andrew, your brother, grieves silently every day, will only share it with me. My best friend, I miss laughing, dancing, singing, sharing, cuddling, walking arm in arm, driving with you. I take one breath at a time, one hour at a time, one day at a time to survive. You should never have been stolen, two weeks before university grad. My "job" now is working with other Moms, organizations and politicians to make sure someone like your ex never gets a gun licence in this country again!

My lovely Hazel

You passed away too soon, at 28. But God must have a bigger purpose for you in Heaven. He gave me the perfect wife, let me feel the perfect love and care. Tomorrow will mark the first month after your passing, but I am confident you are happier in Heaven, away from evil, pain and struggle. You will always have a special place in my heart. Please prepare us a home in Heaven, and please wait for me because I will come see you soon! I miss your cooking and your soft touch! I will always love you wherever you are. -JK

Bill Gubbins

We're the same, you and I.
The power is ours, don't you see?
You are plentiful, I am strong.
And together the wind sings a wonderful song.
You are protective; I give in.
It's the pleasures in the heart; the beauty within.
Carry on, sing a love song. It won't be long. Fulfillment will come. We are not not done.
We will enjoy this earth. Plant our seed, and continue to reap the pleasures of living.

Bill Gubbins

Bill, I hover eagerly for your love
Like a dove above
And, if I were to take flight into the night
I know I would take a special part of your heart with me
And you and I would be in constant unity
With the earth, the stars above
A constant keepsake of your love.
Love is an afterglow
The power to know how he is feeling
A candle burning in your heart
Knowing when you part
You will be together
Knowing throughout the day you will be thinking of him anyway
For the presence of the man
Is an enigma of your imagination

Love, Bridgit

To Bill, My Husband

I'll love you forever
And I know one day we will be together
So will you wait for me and not go away?
Because I have to go on for a long time.

I know you will understand,
I'm in the pink now
And nothing matters but you
Thank you for the moments, the years,
All the laughter, even the tears.

I love you, Bill.
Your wife,

To my husband, Bill

The sky cried today
Tears of falling rain
I felt like I could also feel my pain
I knew that there would be a day
The sun would not shine
That on this day, you no longer be mine
Perhaps one star, one wish
Would bring you back
I knew in my mind and in my heart
There was loneliness and a lack
Of what use to be and no more
So go ahead rain drops
Let it cut down and let it pour
Love you, Bill

For Bill Gubbins

To remember someone is to let go
But to always remember all the good times,
To take the bad with the good,
And to remember we all have a purpose.

We were all different but love is the answer
I love you Bill and I will never forget

Your wife,

Thanks to Doctor Wetter and Linda

For Bill

Don’t fall in love with a girl like me
A friend is all I can be
I am still in love with the distant memory
He is everything to me
I am not as strong anymore
I break easy but I still care
I like happiness
Nice smiles
A man that will never stray
I’m thinking of you Bill
And maybe life is OK.

Love, your wife Bridgit.

For Bill

I love you Bill
and despite the tears
and all the beautiful years
I still miss you

I have a wonderful family
Who are so warm and beautiful
I am proud of them, Bill
I think maybe you think of me everyday, Bill
and we got along, and I am in deep pain

Yes I am sad but smarter
Because Bill you gave me so much encouragement
and I strive to be the girl you loved

I don't want to share this with anyone
and I will never believe you're not here

Bridgit, your best friend

For Bill

Most people in the world are good, my husband to me was an exceptional man. Always giving to the poor, always a listening ear. His loss is too much, I reach out to the heavens to get him back. I love you, Bill. Your wife, Bridgette.

For Bill Gubbins

Regrets, we all had a few
Too many to mention
But God sees us through
We have to go on and relive the good
Sometimes there's a hold on us and we feel so alone
But there are good people and happiness ahead
We have to hold on to that thought
Nothing matters but ourselves and we must protect that beauty with all our being

Love your wife, Brigit Gubbins

For Bill

I'll never leave you Bill
You are my heart's content
I feel what you feel
I love what you love, the big trees, you in a bended knee
Happiness is all around, I love when we sit side by side without a sound
Th birds, the wind, Miracles happen:
they did when I married you

For Bill

In my darkest hour I cry for you, in my happiest memroy I laugh with you.
I remember your face as if it was yesterday. Your voice is always on my mind, I long for those I love you again because you're my best friend.
I would have given my life, that's how strongly I felt.
You will never be forgotten for all eternity.

Your wife Bridgette

Just remembered for all eternity. I love you, sweetheart.
