Goodbye Gus

Gus, who was a wonderful man and grandfather to my dear daughter by marriage passed away on Christmas day. He was in his nineties. He led a very adventuress life and always had a funny story to tell me whenever I had the honour of seeing him. He was very much loved by his family and all of us who knew him. He was so full of life that it is hard to believe that he is no longer with us. Gus was a wonderful wood carver and water birds seemed to be his speciality. He always made us laugh. He was a flirt and a great tease when the ladies were around. He made my mom blush, and that in itself was a real undertaking. Gus was a good person and he will be missed very much. I have no doubt that he is entertaining the angels with all his daring deeds and adventures. He will be missed by us all. Goodbye Gus, we will think of you often and always with a smile.

I'm so sorry for your family's loss, Lois. It's been a difficult year for you, and you and your family are in my prayers. It sounds like Gus was a very special man.

Thank you for your kind words Laurie. Gus WAS a very special man and I tink the world will be less vibrant with him gone.
It HAS been a very difficult year for our family. I hope that 2012 brings peace and good health for all of us.
I wish you and all of yours happiness, good health and lots of laughter for 2012.
Thanks again Laurie.


Oh Gosh Lois, the last three posts are of loss of family, Certainly such trials for you this year! May good memories outweigh the sorrow and the good Lord bless you. May 2012 be a joyous new beginning. Happy New Year my friend!
