The Daily EO: March 15th, 2014

Grandpa Les  1914 – 2014


My beloved grandpa Les has died.  I’m sad and the normal contentment in my life is darkened.  It’s hard to believe that he isn’t here to provide the foundation to our family.  His life overflowed with laughter and love but he knew loss and grief too.


Friends and family are invited to attend a memorial service on Friday, March 21, 2014 at 2:00 pm at First Memorial, Boal Chapel, 1505 Lillooet Rd. North Vancouver, BC.  Donations may be made in memory of Les to the Burnaby Hospital Foundation, himself a contributor for over 25 years.  You are welcome.

Extra-Ordinary March 15, 2014:  Grandpa’s unconditional love permeates our family.  His gift of knowing what love is passed from him and his wife to my mom and uncle.  From my mom to my Dad.  From my mom to me.

From me to my husband.

Grandpa’s love comes full circle.

  1. So tenderly and beautifully said – I cried as I was reading it, but as you know I believe in tears.

    All my love,


  2. That’s lovely, Susan. Les was truly one of my favorite human beings and you all were so fortunate to have had him in your lives. May he now finally rest in peace. Your testimonial was a keeper. Love to you all.

  3. Dear Susan, What a wonderful tribute this is to your Grandpa. I love the picture from your wedding as it has truly captured his spirit in his smile. What a proud day for all of you. I know you will all be at the service for him and what an amazing service it will be with a hundred years to celebrate. It was an honour to know him and I know that he will be missed by all who did. Right now I hope you are all able to share special memories and find strength and comfort in doing that. His love will live on through you. Take care, Love, Kathy
