Janet, Randy and family,

There’s a special place in all of our hearts for our mothers, just like there’s a special place in every mother’s heart for her children. You must continue to carry her memory in that special place in your heart. I am sincerely sorry for the loss of your mother.

We only knew Beatie for a short time but the staff and residents at Bartons Personal Care Home really got to love her. She was a doll and she brightened everyones day. Our condolences to her family and friends. She will be missed.

June, Vince & Family. May care and love of those around you provide comfort and peace to get you through the days ahead. My most sincere condolences.

I am so sorry for your loss,I know your mother will be with you always. Keep the faith and her shinning light will always be there to guide you whenever you need her.

So sorry for your loss, Ashley. We know how close you were to your grandmother. She will be with you always.

God looked around his garden and saw an empty place. He then looked down upon this earth and saw your tired face
He put his arms around you and lifted you to rest. Gods garden must be beautiful, he only takes the best.
Oh my nerves… rest in peace Aunt Beattie
