Dear sister of Dirk Vanderbent of Hamilton and sister-in-law Sue, and Casey Vanderbent of Elliot Lake and partner Verna.

The family would like to thank the Walcott family for their incredible support throughout this journey. The family wishes to thank all the doctors and nursing staff at St. Joseph’s Health Care Centre, Guelph for their amazing care as well as their family doctor, Dr Duncan Bull.

Is folded and hung up to dry
And the seven stars go squawking
Like geese about the sky.”
