Stephen’s family are so grateful to the 2nd floor East staff at Southlake Village for their care and compassion during his final days.  The family also thanks staff at Cedarvale, Southlake Hospital, and The Elden for their care and kindness to Stephen this past year.  To Sherry, Collene, John and Fiona, we thank you for joining Team Steve and providing personal care at the farm.

Like a bird singing in the rain, let grateful memories survive in time of sorrow.   (Robert Louis Stevenson)
