In memory of our community loved ones, friends, mates
I have created a remembrance book which when someone passes I place their photo and a short story about them, their life and their personality. It is passed around for those wishing to sign and write a verse and say goodbye. I find this a positive way for the residents to say good-bye and it is a collection of all our friends that have passed our way
