June 14, 1946 June 17, 2017 Death is nothing at all.
I have only slipped away into the next room.
I am I, and you are you.
Whatever we were to each other, that we still are.
Call me by my old familiar name.
Speak of me in the easy way which you always used.
Put no difference into your tone.
Wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow.
Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes that we enjoyed together.
Play, smile, think of me.
Let my name be ever the household word that it always was.
Let it be spoken without effort, without the trace of a shadow on it.
Life means all that it ever meant.
It is the same as it ever was.
There is absolute and unbroken continuity.
Why should I be out of mind because I am out of sight?
I am but waiting for you, for an interval, somewhere very near, just around the corner.
All is well.
Nothing is hurt; nothing is lost.
One brief moment and all will be as it was before.
How we shall laugh at the trouble of parting when we meet again! -Henry Scott Holland With all our love, Your wife Suzanne, stepchildren Philippe and Paul. Your children Michel and Marie-Claude (Adrian) and grandchildren Ava, Brandon, Liam, Olivia. As well as your brothers and sisters; Michèle (Norman), Jack (Annie), Paul (Jane) and Brenda (Eric). As well as many nieces, nephews and dear friends.
SARAH BETH THERIEN
November 1, 1973 June 17, 2006 In loving memory of our precious daughter, Sarah Beth. We miss you every day and are thankful for the wonderful memories. You live on through your legacy of organ donation, being the first donor after cardiac arrest (Death by Circulatory Determination or DCD) in Canada. Since you became the first DCD donor on June 17, 2006, up until May 31, 2019 there have been 1,819 transplants in Ontario from DCD donors. Well over 1,000 lives have been saved! A truly amazing legacy! All of this because of something that started with your kindness and caring spirit! Way to go Sarah Beth! Forever loved - Mom, Dad, Chris, Diana, Isabella, Ava, Alexa, Chris Jr., and the Bowie and Therien families.
Over the last 10 years, the number of DCD donors in Ontario has increased by 220 per cent, which has transformed the lives of patients waiting for an organ transplant. Ontario has made significant progress, but there is still more to be done. Today over 1,600 people are waiting for a lifesaving organ transplant, and every three days someone will die because they didn't get their transplant in time. Register today at http://www.BeADonor.ca and give hope to those in need.
