Avis Whorley 3n Memoriam In loving memory of MYRA MALLOCH Who passed away on December 24, 2014 My First Christmas In Heaven I see the countless Christmas trees Around the world below With tiny lights, like heaven's stars, Reflecting on the snow. The sight is so spectacular, Please wipe away that tear, For I am spending Christmas with Jesus Christ this year. I hear the many Christmas songs That people hold so dear, But the sounds of music can't compare With the Christmas choir up here. I have no words to tell you, The joy their voices bring, For it is beyond description, To hear the angels sing. I know how much you miss me, I see the pain inside your heart, But I'm not so far away, We really aren't apart. So be happy for me, dear ones, You know I hold you dear. And be glad I'm spending Christmas With Jesus Christ this year. I sent you each a special gift, From my heavenly home above, I sent you each a memory Of my undying love. After all, "love" is a gift More precious than pure gold. It was always most important In the stories Jesus told. Please love and keep each other, As my Father said to do, For I can't count the blessings or love He has for each of you. So have a Merry Christmas And wipe away that tear, Remember, I am spending Christmas With Jesus Christ this year! We miss you every day, Mom.

Card of Thanks The family of Nancy Jane Brown of Campobello Island would like to extend our most heartfelt thanks to everyone who has supported us through this very difficult time. Our friends and neighbors on Campobel- lo and in Lubec have sustained us through their many visits and kind words before and after Nancy's pass- ing. They continue to support us with their many cards, phone calls, visits and home-cooked meals. Their kind- ness and generosity are helping us to face each day and the challenges ahead. We are forever grateful. We would also like to thank the oncology staff at Saint John Region- al Hospital for helping Nancy to fight the good fight for as long as she was able. We can't say enough about Charlotte County Cancer Society who were always there to offer their support to Nancy when needed. We are forever in their debt, and we will not forget. Thanks also to McClure Family Funeral Services for their help and professionalism. Finally, words cannot express how thankful and grateful we are for the staff at the Campobello Lodge Nurs- ing Home. The care and compassion we were afforded during a most dif- ficult 10 days were above and be- yond. The staff there truly cares about each and every resident and family member. They are neighbors taking care of neighbors, and the work they do is truly remarkable. We really don't know what we would have done without them. They were the brightest of lights during some very dark days. Thank you all so very, very much. JOAN M.
