--------------------------------------------------------------------------

On October 25, 2013 at 3:00pm, Deans ashes were laid to rest during a quiet family ceremony at Brampton Memorial Gardens, Lot #R37, on 10061 Chinguacousy Rd, Brampton. (north of Bovaird)
Dean now rests in peace, beneath a beautiful stone monument, where all can freely come to visit him whenever they may need, or choose.

Beacon
This memorial site is here to mark the final resting place for Dean.
It is a fixed place where we can all come to pay our respects;
But, more so, to remember the life, and the lifetime of memories that Dean has given us.
I hope, as Dean would have to, that this marker be a beacon to us all;
Calling on us to return here, every year, on his day of passing...
Not to say good-bye, but to say ‘Hello, we still miss you!’

So, wherever we may be, whatever our individual lives may bring us;
May we all come together here, as his family, to share in the sorrow,
But also:
To remind ourselves of the happier days when Dean was with us,
To rekindle those great memories we’ve shared with him,
To keep Dean alive in our hearts, minds, and souls,
And to help carry him with us, as we go on with our lives in his absence.

Rest In Peace Dean

The End
