Very special thanks to Dr. Gannon, and the exceptional nurses and PSW’s who cared for Isa at Vision Nursing Home. Isa loved to entertain, cook, play golf andbridge, getting her hair done for the last 32 years and babysitting her six grandchildren during their early school days.

Our thoughts and prayers surround Arie, family and friends as we mourn the loss of dear Vickie, our sweet baker and beloved member of St. Giles. We find gladness in the belief that she is living joyously in God’s glory now.

It seems that Don has always been a part of St. Giles and, even after having moved away, both Don and Ann are St. Giles family members forever. Our hearts and prayers go out to Ann and all of their family and friends as we wish them God’s peace.

Always by Ev’s side and quick with a witty comment and a smile, Jack was a well-known and loved member of our St. Giles family. We will miss that twinkle in his eye – the stars are likely shining a little brighter now. Each memory of him is sure to spark joy. May the peace of Christ be with Ev and all of Jack’s family and friends.
