    Chris, you and your family are in my thoughts. I found a poem that I would like to share with you and your family.

    God Saw You Getting Tired
    ***
    God saw you getting tired,
    When a cure was not to be.
    So He wrapped his arms around you,
    and whispered, “come to me.”

    You didn’t deserve what you went through,
    So He gave you rest.
    God’s garden must be beautiful,
    He only takes the best

    And when I saw you sleeping,
    So peaceful and free from pain
    I could not wish you back
    To suffer that again.

  • Barbara Blackburn says:

    Dear friend, Chris,

    What a lovely memorial, for what I know had to be a wonderful father. I’m so sorry for the pain you and your family are enduring. Do all you can to think of the wonderful times I know you’ve shared and not of any recent issues he may have encountered. Looking through old photos is good for what ails you – at least it has been for me.

    Hang in there – from the sister you never had.
    And never wanted. :o)

  • Cindy Hoffman says:

    No one can heal;

    No one can steal.

    May all your memories throughout his life, help everyone through this sad time.

  • Alisha Parry says:

    Ever since I was a little kid Grandpa tried to teach me the meaning of responsibility. Ever since I was a little kid I tried to teach Grandpa the difference between a boy friend and a friend that’s a boy. I know Grandpa’s lesson sunk in after a few years of childhood stubbornness, but I’ve always wonder if the lessons tried to be taught by a 6 year old ever sunk in :-) I know the sorrow of losing an amazing Grandpa will fade with time. But while it does, and even after it does the word responsibility will always mean more to me than anyone else. Grandpa, you were a great guy and you will be missed greatly, but we are all very glad you’re no longer suffering.

  • Alisha Parry says:

Ever since I was a little girl I tried to teach Grandpa the difference between a boy friend and a friend that’s a boy. I know his lesson sunk in, after some childhood stubbornness, but I wonder if my lesson from a 6 year old ever did :-). I know in time the sorrow of losing a great Grandpa will pass and Iwe will be left with nothing but good memories, but while that sorrow passes, and even after it passes, I will always have the special meaning of responsibility to look to. Grandpa, you were an amazing guy and you will be greatly missed, but we are all happy you are no longer suffering.

  • Clay Dees says:

    Chris and family. Very sorry to hear of your Dad’s passing. I enjoyed working for him at RO Beaumont Facilities Management and am indebted to him, as are a lot of people here, for the oppurtunity to learn and work in a trade. He initiated the beginning of work ethic here of quality and pride. I’m sure he will be missed.

  • Chip and Linda and Austin says:

    Chris, Caron, Alisha, and the Parry family, our deepest sympathies.

  • Kevin Heikkila says:

    Chris, Well your dad is now Home. How sweet it must be. I am so greatfull to have had the opportunity to have met your dad. He was the one who took a chance and gave me the opportunity to start my career. I have forever been indebted to his faith in me, even during my wild and reckless years as a young man. My only regret is that I did not make the time to correspond with him over the years and to personally thank him. You and your family are welcome anytime at our home.
