When I come to the end of the road,
And the sun has set for me,
I want no rites in a gloom filled room.
Why cry for a soul set free
Miss me a little . . . But not too long,
And not with your head bowed low,
Remember the love that we once shared . . .
Miss me, but let me go!
For this is a journey we all must take,
And each must go alone.
It’s all part of the Master’s plan,
A step on the road to home.
When you are lonely and sick of heart,
Go to the friends we know
And bury your sorrows in doing good deeds
Miss me . . . But let me go.
Our mother is predeceased by parents Egbert and Beatrice Cousins and grandson Antoine.
Deeply mourned by husband Lawton, daughters Marie (Valeriu) and Celia (Torsten), sister Barbara (Noel), nephew Shane (Ana), grandsons Adrian, Alexander and Daniel, grandniece Emily and grandnephew Matthew, former in-laws Claude and Lisa.
She will be sorely missed by all those who knew her as a strict but warm-hearted math/computer science teacher and a compassionate special education teacher.
To her close family, she was an independent thinker who was strong minded and prescient, an enthusiastic gardener, cat lover, avid reader, baby tiger, a constant and loving supporter and protector of her family.
We are deeply grateful to all of the medical and personal care workers who looked after our mom over the years of her illness. We appreciate your many acts of kindness and compassion.
A special thanks to personal friends and the church community for their support of our parents over the years.
For those who wish donations may be made to Parkinson Canada or St. Francis of Assisi Anglican Church, Meadowvale.
Mummy, thanks for being our mom, we love you always.
--- An Irish Blessing ---
May the road rise to meet you,
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
The rains fall soft upon your fields
And until we meet again
May GOD hold you in the palm of HIS hand.
