Fred I don't know what I would have done without you.  You are one in a Million.  I love you very much.

Rick I want to thank you for always calling your Father every Sunday and checking up on us.  For that I love you so much.

My most wonderful caregiver in the world, Joan Saunders.  I don't know what I would do without your Big Hugs and kisses every time you would go home.  You always would say “Love you a bushel and a Pic.”  You are truly one of the best persons in this whole wide world.  I will love you always.

To my Guardian Angels Ruth Atwell and Donnie McLean, I didn't know that suchj nice people still lived.  You two are the sweetest people in the world.  The telephone calls, the visits, but mostly the food that you brought to me.  All those Cheese and Tea Biscuits and soups.  I could go on and on about all the many different kinds of food, all homemade.  I love you guys so much that words can never say how much that tou have helped Reg out.  By doing all that you did I will always love you for this.

Diane Campbell, Sherry Lambert and Gail Daigle thank you for the laughter that we shared while drinking our Tims coffee at the mall.  I will love you forever for being there for me. 



Tomorrow is not promised to anyone, young and old alike, and today may be the last chance you get to hold your loved ones.  Why not do it today?  For if tomorrow never comes you'll surely regret today.  That you didn't take that extra time for a smile, a hug or a kiss.  And you were to busy to greet someone that turned out to be their one last wish.  So hold your loved ones close today and whisper in their ear.  Tell them how much you love them and that you'll always hold them dear.  Take time to say “I'm sorry, please forgive me, thank-you, or it's okay.”  And if tomorrow never comes you'll have no regrets today.
