At its annual general meeting held on Tuesday, June 11, Nettie Stupnikoff, treasurer for the foundation told fellow directors that thanks to the generosity of the community, business and organizations, the foundation was able to make several purchases which will greatly benefit Castlegar and area. “We have a wonderful community with a lot of generous people,” Stupnikoff said. Specifically, last year’s donations totaled almost $55,000. Some $30,000 of

Arrow Reservoir users could be in for another frustrating summer when it comes to water levels in Arrow Lake. At a meeting hosted by BC Hydro last on Tuesday, June 11, Jim McNaughton, senior engineer, operations planning for BC Hydro told attendees that while the predicted runoff for the Arrow Reservoir is forecasted to be at 102 per cent of the normal, that could change as summer comes into full swing. “Given current conditions, BC Hydro expects that the Arrow water level may drop below the preferred summer recreation level of 1,435 feet during this period. Although this water level is relatively uncommon, it is well within the historical range. Water levels on August 1 from the years 1968 to present have ranged from a low of about 1,400

I think it needs to not be all about money.” McNaughten said while Hydro was not going to definitively rule out spilling water from July to September, there would be a deep financial cost associated with doing so. In prior public meetings with Hydro, the subject of added debris both in the reservoir and on the

feet to a high of about 1,446 feet.” This is also due, in part, to upgrades being done at Mica Dam and the installation of two new generators. BC Hydro plans to limit generation at Mica for most of the summer to safely allow ongoing project work to replace aging switchgear equipment in the underground powerhouse. As a result, outflows from Mica and downstream Revelstoke dams are expected to be lower than normal from July through September. One reservoir user voiced her frustration at this news, saying that while she fully understands Hydro’s obligations under the Columbia River Treaty and Hydro’s operating requirements, especially during the upgrades, there has to be a balance. “I know [downstream users] need water, but don’t take it all out of the reservoir.

residents at “odd number” addresses water on “odd number” calendar days, and residents at “even number” addresses water on “even number” calendar days.

Summer can present special problems for Castlegar’s water system. During the summer season, daily residential water use can increase by as much as 200% primarily because of lawn and garden watering as well as car washing. Our residential water is pumped from the Arrow Lakes to reservoirs, from which water is supplied to residents. Excessive sprinkling during summer months reduces the water contained in our reservoirs. Even if the system has adequate supply, it may not be able to pump the water fast enough during this peak demand period to maintain storage for firefighting purposes. Castlegar is attempting to stop the increase in water usage by restricting use during the summer months. This year citizens are being asked to sprinkle on odd or even days, according to their residential address. Watering will be permitted from 5:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. and from 5:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m each day. Residents who use a water regulating system (e.g. timers and underground sprinkler system with timers) shall be exempted from the regulations, providing they do their outdoor watering between the hours of 11:00 p.m. and 5:00 a.m. on an alternating day basis. The reasoning behind this exemption is that timers and underground sprinkling systems allow the user to water during the coolest part of the day, hence less water is required and their sprinkling times should be shorter. Please advise City Hall at 365-7227 if you have a water regulating system. A fine of $50.00 will be levied for non-compliance to the water regulations. However, under special circumstances, an exemption permit can be obtained at City Hall, 460 Columbia Avenue during regular office hours. Reasons for exemption include the following: a new residential lawn, a means of controlling dust, watering within a construction or building project.

Equitable licensing will help

Weighing in on a local controversy can be a simple and short process. Making making ideas public requires a fair bit of thoughtful consideration. A current local issue with a relatively hot button, relates to the presence of mobile food vendors and how the city is regulating them. Not having actually staked out the trailer and van which are conspicuously located along our main drag, it appears that at least some of the time they’re doing a brisk trade. There have also been great reviews regarding the cuisine from both operations. Points have been made by some local entrepreneurs as to the business playing field, and how level it is. The comments suggest a mobile business working prime locations in peak season could have an unfair advantage over an established eatery with a fixed address. To the diner, the bottom lines are quality, choice and value... simply, the more the merrier. There’s a clear reason why mobile vendors are all the rage. They offer us variety and convenience. The points made by the operators of “brick and mortar” establishments, about their commitment to the community, are every bit as compelling City Hall definitely has its work cut out in coming up with a licencing formula that all affected parties can accept. We want to hear from you.

From caveman to man cave

Man can grow old, but never grow up. I had to laugh when I read that quote at http://www.oddee.com/item_97008. aspx. Let me explain a bit and you will see what I mean. The other day my husband and I decided to take a Sunday drive. We really had nowhere in mind, but the day was beautiful and it was nice to spend the time together without the television, computer or phone. Eventually we found ourselves driving through adjoining communities admiring the beautifully kept yards and the abundance of flowers that late spring offers. While slowly driving through Blueberry, we spied a house with a garage. The door to the garage was open and I could see a couch and various other items in there. Turning to my husband, I jokingly said, “Hey! I bet that’s a man cave!” It turns out that it was. Because we had driven down a dead end street we had to pass by that house again and this time when I took a better look, I could see that a TV was mounted on the wall along with other various man cave things. Which got me thinking – wouldn’t it be nice if my husband had his own little man cave? It’s the Stanley Cup playoffs. I’m already sick of hockey (yes, I know it’s Marvin Beatty Reporter

Jim Sinclair Editor

heresy to think that, let alone put it in print). A man cave would be the perfect solution! His shop already has a fridge and the shop is certainly big enough to plop in a couch, a few manly decorations and…. Well, being a woman, I wasn’t sure what else goes in a man cave and so I turned to my friend Google and did a bit of research. I’m not sure I will share the results of that search with my husband, and I most certainly won’t be sharing this column with him because what I discovered in the search was a real eye opener. While many men would likely be happy with a couch, fridge, TV and remote, there are those who have taken the concept of a man cave to the far edge of reality. One of the man caves had its very own stripper pole, while another is a virtual shrine to the University of Florida. Another has three (yes, three!) “32inch televisions, a 110-inch Stewart film screen fixed display, a Sharp 1080p DLP projector, 7.2-channel surround sound, a PlayStation 3, Lutron lighting and Crestron touch panel control.” Toss in a full wet bar, an icemaker and two beverage centres and you have the ultimate man cave. Seriously? Quit salivating guys. I guess in a perverse kind of way man caves make sense. After all, we women usually have sizable authority when it Chris Hopkyns Publisher

comes to decorating a home. Men just usually shrug and bite their tongues when we decide to decorate it in girly frou-frou style. For the most part, men who have man caves are asserting themselves in a very masculine way. It’s kind of like a boys’ club. Remember when you were younger and it was boys only, no stinky girls allowed? Some things never change. Through my research I learned that man caves might be extremely beneficial to men. According to some psychologists, man caves can provide stress relief and might even be beneficial to marriages. No nagging wife. No girly things hung on the wall. I’ll bet those psychologists are men themselves. But to this hockey-tired wife, I can see the allure in it. Yup, hours upon hours of me, stretched out in my recliner, remote in my hand, flicking through all my favourite shows, belching at will and scratching without a care in the world. Meanwhile all of my most girly things would surround me and all I would smell would be estrogen. Of course, I’m dreaming and that would only happen if he was in his man cave. But, I would miss him. I would miss our conversations and I would miss his company. So I guess that man cave will have to wait just a bit longer, and that means he still keeps control of the remote.

CENTRAL

THE BENEFITS OF PRUNING TREES AND SHRUBS

P

runing trees and shrubs is necessary to ensure they maintain their health and vigor. Trees and shrubs should be inspected annually to determine if they need to be pruned. Mature trees typically do not need to be pruned as frequently as young trees, which need pruning to establish branch structure. Trees and shrubs that go years without pruning can become overgrown and weak. In addition to promoting tree and shrub health, pruning pays a host of other dividends. * Pruning removes dead or diseased branches. Pruning helps a tree or shrub maintain its shape and vigor by removing broken, dead or diseased branches that can be unsightly and make it more difficult for the tree or shrub to stay healthy. When broken, dead or diseased branches are removed, trees or shrubs look healthier and add aesthetic appeal to a property. * Pruning trees and shrubs promotes growth of other plants. Trees and shrubs that go years without being pruned become overgrown, making it difficult for plants underneath or adjacent to them to grow in healthy. For example, grass beneath an overgrown tree might not get adequate sunlight, which it needs to establish strong roots so it can grow in lush and healthy. Pruning allows plants beneath the tree and shrub and even those next to the tree and shrub to grow in nicely.

* Pruning reduces risk of accidents. Overgrown trees can interfere with power lines, increasing the risk of accidents and power outages. In addition, overgrown trees tend to have larger, weaker limbs, which can prove hazardous and cause property damage during storms. Pruning overgrown trees reduces the risk of such accidents.

* Pruning adds curb appeal. A property littered with overgrown trees and shrubs hurts a home’s curb appeal, giving prospective buyers the impression that homeowners might have been careless with regard to maintaining the whole house and not just the lawn. But trees and shrubs that are pruned and well-maintained can add to a home’s curb appeal, something that goes a long way toward impressing prospective buyers.

* Pruning can save money. Over time, overgrown trees might require professional assistance in order to be removed or pruned from a property. Homeowners who prune their trees as needed can save themselves the cost of a potentially pricey tree service.

* Pruning can sometimes bring plants back to life. Shrubs that have gone years without being pruned can sometimes still be salvaged. In some instances, pruning such shrubs can restore natural and healthy growth.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

Weighing in on food vendor issue I read the paper this weekend and was disappointed to hear of the responses both in attendance and thought regarding the meetings on the mobile food vendors. Facilitated by you the chamber. Call me crazy, but I would like to see the invitation or talk to the person by whom all restaurants were allegedly invited and only four showed. Was the invite an email, notice, letter, phone call, or what? I have a valid opinion but according to my records no invitation was even given to me for a voice.

mortar eateries. -ed.

Had I seen or heard of this event my husband Tom Frauley and myself would most certainly have been there. It is important for the city council to hear what we the restaurant community have to say. Deb McIntosh was quoted saying we the restaurant owners have taxes to pay, well that’s not all. A large outlay of money is the beginning of any business, but monthly overhead and building a strong staff family is a responsibility not for the faint of heart. We the restaurant community employ on a large scale, residents in Castlegar whom otherwise would be jobless. Food vans usually have only themselves to worry about.

There is a place in special events and carnivals for food trucks/vans but on a day to day business scale it is burdening an already economy challenged industry. There is much else to be said and deliberated but this is just a small thought for now there is much to be looked at in regard to this issue.

Undying gratitude

Dear Turan, Thank you for coming to my aid on May 25, 2013 at Tim Hortons. Your actions prevented me from slipping into a coma, to death. I heard how you stayed with me for over 45 minutes... how 911 was called several times with no response... how you called the RCMP to no avail. This should be totally investigated. I will never forget you and your actions. This community is blessed (to have you as part of it.) Thank you. -Ken Schwab, Castlegar

MP’s Commentary Suppression of public information harmful All Parliamentarians are responsible for scrutinizing government information to ensure that the government is held accountable to Canadians. However, a disturbing trend is emerging—the deliberate suppression of information by the government, on many levels. The lack of clear details from the Harper Conservatives on Budget Bills C-38 and C-45 has seriously hindered MPs’ efforts to examine the rationale and impact of the gov-

ernment’s spending plans. The Parliamentary Budget Officer (PBO) is designed to provide independent fiscal analysis to Parliament so that all MPs have the information they need to do their job. The PBO has encountered tremendous barriers to fulfilling the responsibilities of the position, including: • Refusal by senior federal government managers to provide detailed financial data to rationalize expenditures and policy decisions; • Lack of cooperation and non-compliance by federal ministers in ensuring their departments/ agencies work with the PBO; and • Consistent accusations by Conservative ministers and senators that the PBO is operating outside the mandate of the position. In addition to withholding fiscal details, the Conservative government is also reducing the kind and amount of information that is available online to

Alex Atamanenko, MP for British Columbia South File

Canadians. The British Columbia Freedom of Information and Privacy Association has revealed the government’s plan to centralize and diminish information on federal government websites. Many changes have already been made and much information has already disappeared, including the Aboriginal Canada portal. Canadians should be concerned about these changes, and with the Conservative’s use of taxpayer-funded government websites to promote partisan positions. These breaches of ethical practice took place when Minister Julian Fantino posted partisan views on the

Canadian International Development Agency website, and when the government posted its views on a bill calling for a national homelessness strategy on the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation website. The Harper Conservatives are also continuing to muzzle public servants. For example, Environment Canada scientists now require approval from the Privy Council Office before speaking publicly on such topics as climate change or the protection of polar bear and caribou. And as of February 1, 2013, new rules were put in place requiring all scientists working with the Department of Fisheries and Oceans (DFO) in the Central and Arctic regions to treat all information as proprietary to DFO, and to obtain departmental approval before submitting research to any scientific journal. Dr. David Schindler, a world-renowned scientist at the University of Alberta, believes that the government’s closure of the En-

vironmental Lakes Area research facility is linked to the muzzling of scientists and quashing of scientific evidence. Schindler said that the research that was done at the facility contradicts the claims of the oil industry and government about the impacts of the tar sands. ”My guess is our current managers don’t like to see this kind of research,” he said. An overhaul of the National Research Council (NRC) by the Conservatives also indicates an alarming lack of insight about how science works. Cutbacks to environmental research funding and dismantling the NRC will hurt Canada’s science and innovation capacity. The NDP Science and Technology deputy critic, Laurin Liu, has heard from hundreds of scientists who are very concerned about the direction the government is taking regarding scientific freedoms. These trends are very disturbing and a complete affront to our democracy.

Conversations With Nature – photographer Janet Dwyer Barb Sinclair Castlegar News Contributor

The June 7 opening of Kootenay Gallery’s current exhibition was well attended by art lovers and camera buffs alike. Janet Dwyer, of Saltspring

Island, BC, is an artist with a fairly new concept of reproducing nature in art with her specialized imaging technique called scanography. We all wondered during the installation of this wonderfully, colour-

ful show how she got these huge, crisp images. After a warm and informative greeting to visitors from Executive Director Val Field, the floor was given over to Janet. Rather than execute a

speech, or talk about her bio or education, she chose to field a question-and-answer time. We all wanted to know, ‘Just how on earth did you did this?’ Janet was very thankful for the op-

portunity to have her artwork exhibited here, and also quite emotional as the talk got underway – your show is your baby, and you are hanging all your insides out there to be viewed, scrutinized, and be-

ing made to explain just where you’re coming from. “It’s not such a new technique,” said Janet, “maybe 15 years. It’s sort of like Xerox copying, in a way. You know, you just put things on your copier and use it as a tool to make images.” It’s all digital work these days, and the scanner is just one of the items needed. Continued Dwyer, “You just get your pieces and lay them down on the scanner (the lid is off completely) in the order you think you want your composition to look like… you can’t really see how it will look, so you have to lower the resolution. At this point I just want to see what my composition looks like,” she explained. “Some people say ‘why don’t you just have a big plate of glass suspended over your head, lay out your picture, then put the glass on the scanner and go?’ Something that most people don’t know is that there is a big dust problem with

glass, and all that dust would be detailed in your scan.” In effect, you would be magnifying things you didn’t want in there, and at a higher resolution it really wouldn’t look the way you wanted it to look – especially if you had a thumbprint in there. So, after you’ve got everything on the scanner the way you want, then you get help from photoshop to fine-tune the colour. Finally, you ‘up’ the resolution to get the clarity you’re going after, look again at the results and keep doing this until you’re satisfied. You don’t need a big scanner for this, but you do need a big printer, like maybe 40” wide. Because of the size of the desired end result of the picture, it can take 12-15 minutes to produce, and sometime even longer. Be sure to come and see this exhibit which runs until July 20, and enjoy its clarity, colour and content. The gallery is open Tuesday to Saturday, 10 - 5 p.m.

Province takes steps to keep deadly deer disease out of B.C. SUBMITTED

Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations VICTORIA - The Province is launching a public awareness campaign to help prevent a disease that is killing deer, elk and moose in some areas of Alberta and Saskatchewan, from crossing the border into British Columbia.

The disease is caused by an abnormal protein and can spread when a healthy animal comes in contact with an infected animal To support the campaign, the Province has set up signs on Highway 49 near Dawson Creek and in the southern portion of the province on Highway 3 near Sparwood, reminding hunters not to bring intact deer carcasses into B.C. The signs were developed with the support of the Peace River Regional District, the Guide Outfitters Association of BC, the BC Wildlife Federation and the Habitat Conservation Trust Foundation. Hunters can still bring the meat from their hunt back to B.C. Possession of an out-of-province hide, antler, or part of a skull is also permitted, providing they have been treated in a way that removes all tissue. For detailed information on the requirements for

processing outof-province deer, moose and elk, visit: http://www.env. gov.bc.ca/wld/documents/wldhealth/ CWD_program_update_spring2013.pdf Chronic Wasting Disease, or CWD, is a progressive, fatal nervous system disease that affects members of the deer family, including white-tailed deer, mule deer, moose and elk. The disease is caused by an abnormal protein and can spread when a healthy animal comes into contact with an infected animal, infected tissue or even soil contaminated by the protein. The disease was first identified in Canada in 1996, and despite attempts to manage it, CWD continues to spread in Saskatchewan and Alberta. The Province has been working since 2001 to keep CWD out of B.C. and in 2010 passed a regulation to restrict the transport of high risk tissues of hunted animals into B.C. The Province of British Columbia continues to monitor for the disease and so far no infected animals have been found in B.C. CWD is related to bovine spongiform e n c e p h a l o p a t h y, which causes mad cow disease. However, the World Health Organization (WHO) does not believe that CWD can be passed from deer to humans. As a precaution, the World Health Organization warns people not to eat the meat from infected deer.

Canada Day Contest

We stand on guard, we stand on guard... for... he... or she! Staff writer Black Press

An online Canada Day pet photo contest hosted by Black Press is pitting proud pet owners against one another in the quest for a fun prize package.

Called the True Petriot Love Contest, passionate pet owners should be up to the challenge. Snapping pictures of Mittens, Rascal and Tweety is something most people already love to do. “Everyone loves

their pet and especially taking pictures of their pet,” says Nelson Star publisher Karen Bennett. “This is just a fun way to incorporate Canada Day celebrations into a contest people are already going to enjoy.”

She’s hoping people get creative by way of displaying their patriotic pride with flags, bandanas and other Canadian paraphernalia all making good accessories. Maple leafs are a safe bet but it’s how they’re used that will peg one pho-

to a notch above the rest. This is the first time Black Press if offering a contest running across the West Kootenay. Competition will be stiff with pet owners from Nelson, Trail, Rossland, Castlegar and Grand

You and your pet can do at least this good, don’t you think?

Forks all participating. “Pets are popular so this is a great place to start with our first regional contest,” says Bennett. Prizes on offer include a $50 shopping spree gift card from Dig Garden Centre; a Canadian-made Silverfoot collar and leash set plus a Red Dingo ID tag from Tails in Rossland (valued at over $60); restaurant gift certificates courtesy Selkirk Veterinary Hospital

valued at $100; Up to 25 lb. of Petcurian Pet Food from Nelson Farmer’s Supply worth $50 and a cat and dog prize package from Central Bark.

Q A

I have just purchased a boat. Do I have coverage for the boat automatically under my home policy?

Good question. Most home policies do cover boats, motors and their equipment but only up to a specified limit, usually around $ 2,000. The liability under your home policy only covers the ownership and operation of certain size and types of boats. Every Insurance Company has different wordings but usually if the boat is less than 26 feet and the outboard motor is less than 25 hp or the inboard motor is less than 50hp, they can be included under the home policy. If your boat is worth more than $ 2,000 you can either add coverage to your home policy or purchase a separate marine policy. Coverages vary and you want to make sure you know what you are purchasing. The best policy is an agreed value policy with no depreciation for repairs on partial claims. Agreed value means the Insurance Company pays the amount of insurance purchased so this is why older boats require a marine survey to determine the value of the boat. Some policies have extensions automatically included in the policy, such as coverage for tenders (dingys), personal effects, loss of use and fire department charges. There may also be a separate water-sport liability limit on your policy. To get more more information contact RHC Insurance Brokers at any one of our 8 locations.

When you eat a meal, it takes about 4 hours for the food to move into the large intestine. Some people say that some foods give them gas. This gas is formed in the large intestine so that bowl of chili you had for lunch could be causing you gas at supper. Teen acne can be an embarrassing problem but can be treated. Seeing the doctor may not be necessary at first. Gently washing the skin with mild soap and water and applying non-prescription lotions may be all that's needed. Products containing benzoyl peroxide can be effective. Our pharmacist can show you what's available. If home treatment doesn't work, see your doctor. As your pharmacist, we keep a record of all your medications and note any allergies or sensitivities you have had to certain drugs in the past.

coach development. The concept is called Long Term Player Development (LPTD), and is evolved from the modern approaches the world international soccer body, FIFA, has adopted. Michael Findlay, Director of Soccer Development for BC Soccer explained that Canada would be insured of world class players tomorrow through Grassroots Coaching Development, and player development. BC Soccer plans to have free coaching workshops and services available to across all regions of the province. Through a representative or tutor from BC Soccer in every region, access will be there for everyone. Specifical-

A session to help players and coaches was held on June 7. Derek J. Kaye

ly, a free three-hour Grassroots Coaching Workshop will be offered to all local coaches, age specific to their teams. The workshop will focus on player development and how skills training changes with player age. BC Soccer wants to develop a continuous structured pro-

gram for soccer player development from youth player to adult coach. They want to develop players for tomorrow’s professional league and tomorrow’s World Cup teams. Soccer is the most widely participated sport in Canada. The “beautiful” game needs more exposure and promi-

nence to reach a higher commitment in Canada. Last Friday saw local coaches and players run through new drills under the watchful eyes of top coaches. Some of the drills started to look like choreography and the beautiful game got more beautiful.

the Babes and The Killjoys you would know it was an all out grudge match. The score flipped and flopped back and forth faster then a live fish in frying pan. The final whistle signaled the Babes ahead on the scoreboard…. the team was ecstatic! But it’s custom in the sport of roller derby to go over the officials’ paperwork after a close bout to check that the score was added up correctly. Low and behold there was discrepancy between

the scoreboard and the official paperwork and the Killjoys reversed the final score by two points and took the win from the celebrating Babes. I’m not going to say there are any hard feelings about the switch, but what I am going to say is that these two teams are gonna make sure there is no room for error in the score keeping this time.

July 6th, 1940 - June 11th, 2011 A Lady, Wife, Mother, Partner and Friend It’s two years since you left us never to return. But never, ever, to be forgotten. By her husband; John C., son; John A., daughters; Jackie (Ken) Martin and Jenny Rogers, Grandsons; Bruce, Twins Nick and Chris Martin and Damien Rogers And by family in England, Canada and around the world.

Beryle Irma Irene Smith August 2, 1925 – May 2, 2013 It is with great sadness that the family of Irene Smith announces her passing. Irene peacefully slipped away May 2, 2013 in Kelowna at the age of 87. Irene is predeceased by her husband Don Smith and step-sons Allan Smith and John Bishop. Irene will be greatly missed and forever remembered by her son Don Smith(Laurel), step-daughter Hazel Clouston(John), step-son Mike Smith(Joan), Irene’s grandchildren: Dionne(Mark), Josey(Rob), Quinn(Justin) , Dillion, Lorne, Sherri(Greg), Daughter-in-law Janice Smith and many great grandchildren (Logan, Lucas, Aryanna, Neveah, Kenya, Lexi, Evan, Cheyenne, Tanis and Dakota), nieces, nephews, special friends Diane Boyd, Carol Fabbro, and all the Genelle Seniors. The family would like to thank the doctors and nurses at Kootenay Boundry Regional Hospital that cared for Irene on Saturday April 27 and the doctors and nurses at Kelowna General Hospital that cared for Irene until her passing. A celebration of Irene’s life will be held at the Genelle Hall on what would have been Irene’s 88th Birthday, August 2, 2013 from 1-4pm. Irene was born on August 2, 1925 in Saskatoon, Sk. She married Don Smith in 1952, and was a step mother to Don’s two son’s Allan and Mike. They moved to Edmonton, and in 1954 added Donald Smith Jr. to their family. The family continued west to Penticton, Grandforks, Acme, Kamloops and finally settled in Genelle. Irene cherished her family especially all her grandchildren and great grandchildren, Grandma kept track of everyone and we will all miss her phone calls so much. Irene lived independently up until her passing and enjoyed gardening, canning, baking, family dinners, going to seniors, and spent many days playing scrabble with Diane. In the past years Irene also enjoyed spending time with her nephews and their families at their cabin in the Shuswap, going on road trips with family, and spent many hours on figuring out the family history and geneology.

The Broken Chain: God saw you getting tired, he did what he thought was best, He put his arms around you, and said, “come and rest”. He opened up his golden gates, on that heartbreaking day, And with his arms around you, you gently slipped away, It broke our hearts to lose you, you did not go alone. For part of us went with you, the day God called you home. You left us peaceful memories, your love is still our guide. And though we cannot see you, you are always by our sides. Our family chain is broken, and nothing seems the same, But as God calls us one by one, the chain will link again.
