It is with a very heavy heart and great sadness, that I am writing to let you know that my Mom, Bev Barnett, passed away peacefully with her three daughters at her side on Saturday, September 4th, 2010 after her battle with cancer. The last two months have been a very hard battle for Mom and we are all relieved to know that she is no longer struggling and no longer in pain.
We know for sure that Mom has joined Dad thanks to a very interesting "coincidence".... we will never forget the date and time that Dad passed away on May 4th, 2006 (that's 04/05/06) at 6:54pm.... and we know for sure that Dad came to get her as Mom passed away on the 4th of September at 6:54pm.
Funeral arrangements have not yet been made, but keep an eye on the Saskatchewan Obituaries if you are interested.
We are asking that anyone who knew mom, was touched by her kindness, or loved her cards, please consider making a donation to the Regina Wascana Grace Hospice. The hospice is the wonderful facility where Mom spent her last 6 weeks. The staff there was absolutely amazing... showing so much care, concern and compassion not only for Mom but for us girls as well.
They have a memorial wall inside of the hospice.... when donations are made in someone's name, either a bronze leaf, a silver leaf, or a gold butterfly.... each of those are based on how much money is donated. We were told by several people over the course of Mom's illness that she was a butterfly..... so we'd like to try to get Mom a butterfly on the wall of the hospice....
If you are interested in making a donation, please save the form below and print it off.... fill it out and send it with your Canadian cheque or money order to
Wascana Grace Hospice
50 Angus Rd
Regina SK S4R 8P6
We would truly love any support we can get to make Mom a butterfly.....
Thank you to everyone for your prayers, love and support for all of us during this most difficult time. Mom loved all of the cards she received in her mailbox.... it was wonderful to have them on display at the hospice, catching the eye of all of the staff.
