It is now 1 year since you were freed from this illness.


Every day that goes by, you are in my thoughts.


On September 15th, 2018, all who attended, the Celebration of Life, we had for you, in your honour, showed me how much you were loved by everyone that met you.


I want to thank you, with all my heart, for the beautiful memories, we had together.


I love you so much and I miss you every day.







You are now free of the pain and suffering of this terrible sickness and you have begun another journey.


When I met you, you brought joy and happiness in my life, you are an amazing partner and friend that always treated me with love and respect.


I was so happy to have found such a wonderful, considerate person like you.


The beautiful memories of us, on our long bike rides and walks on Saturday mornings, dancing with the music full blast and your arms that held me tight at night, will keep me going, until we meet again.


All your wishes have been honoured and respected, as you wanted them to be.


I love you so much and I will miss you every day. You will always be in my heart.

    R.I.P. Murray. We had an opportunity to meet you with Suzanne on several occasions. We found you to be a very nice person. Yes, Alzheimer is a terrible illness that afflicts too many people and sadly too many people pass away at a too much young age. Jacques and Jeannine Cardinal
