Written in 2014:
“You can take it with you” and I will
The memories of life are going with you
All those little aches and pains are going too
You won’t require those worldly goods so it isn’t necessary to have excess baggage
Your shortness of breath caused by being foolishly addicted to nicotine
You can leave behind any animosity you may carry
You take all the love and gratitude of family. C.B
A Private family service will take place at a later date, cremation has taken place.
So sorry to hear of the passing of Uncle Laverne. I had the utmost respect and love for the man. May he rest in peace and be with his brothers, his mother, and his beloved wife.
Sorry for your loss .My deepest sympathy
We know Valerie only, but if you can tell the tree from its fruit, then Mr. Brander must have been some man, a man to have known, a man who will be remembered.
Much sympathy to Val and Sean and the Brander family.
Gerald and Mary Jo Lynch
