A heartfelt saying shared by the family:
“I know for certain we never lose the people we love, even to death. They continue to participate in every act, thought, and decision we make. Their love leaves an imprint in our memories. We find comfort in knowing our lives have been enriched by having shared their love”.

In the time of COVID, there will not be a funeral service, a Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.
In Lieu of flowers, donations to Boston Terrier Rescue Canada ( or Make-A-Wish Canada ( would be appreciated by the family (cards available at the funeral home).
