Allen and I send our deepest condolences to you Brian and your family. We knew you but met Linda and her family when we were all camping at Grand Beach. Had a great time and then years later we used to run into you abnd Linda at Canadian Tire. Linda always had a smile on her face and a kind laugh. We know you will all miss her. We were so pleased to attend the Celebration of Life today. What a beautiful tribute to your wife. Linda would have been so proud of her children. Take care Brian. Our thoughts are with you at this time. Take care. Allen and Linette Bell

If tears could build a stairway, and memories a lane, I would walk right up to heaven and bring you back again... It broke our hearts to lose you, but you didn't go alone.... For part of us went with you that day God called you home.... God looked all around his garden and he found an empty place, he knew this would be the perfect place for you.. Then he looked down upon the earth and he saw your precious face, he put his arms around you and he lifted you up to rest . He knew you were suffering, he knew you were in pain. Although you tried to hide it and be strong... deep inside you became tired.... Although you will be missed deeply, we know that you will remain in spirits looking down on all of us, we will continue doing what we did while you were here as I know that's what you would want... Rest in peace Linda Love and forever Cathy & Gord McFarlane
