March 2000

March 1
PATRICIA I. ALLEN March 1950 – Dec. 1995 In loving memory of our mother. You have always given us love and showed support in whatever we chose to do with our lives. We both thank you for that. You were never contradicting and helped us learn from our mistakes. Whenever one of our friends needed help, you acted as their second mother. You gave them shelter and support when needed. There is not a day that goes by when one of us doesn’t think about you. I have been told I am like you in many ways. For me, that makes me feel special. Today is the day that you started a new and special journey. When a person passes on, you always told me they were chosen for a special project. I know God has something very important planned for you. You have so much love to give; Terri and I are lucky to have you. I know somebody else will be touched by you as much as we have been. Terri now has a son who is going to be turning three. We have told him many wonderful things about you. He has had many problems, but we know you have been there watching over him. No matter where you are sent for an assignment, we all know you are our guardian angel. You are gone physically, but you always remain in our spirit and in our hearts. We love you and miss you very much. Love, your daughters, Terri and Leslie

ELIZABETH J. ATKINS Aug. 7, 1924 – March 18, 1999 Mom, it was a year ago today that you got in your car, never to return. The memories of that day are just like they happened today. I play it over and over in my mind, wondering why I didn’t do things differently. I am not asking the world for forgiveness, but I am hoping that wherever you are, you can forgive me for not taking better care of you. May you be frolicking in the rows of flowers and blessed with peace throughout. Until we meet again, you are loved and missed. Your daughter, Coreen.
Keith A. Barrows 4/28/1939 – 3/18/99 Taken from us a year ago. Time has passed us by, but our memories are always there. You will always live within each of us. What we would give to see you, hear you. Still missing & remembering you always! Lovingly remembered by your Family The Burlington Free Press sincerely apologizes for the omission of Keith Barrows’ In Memorian. It should have run Saturday, March 18, 2000.
 GWENDOLYN SHIRLEY WADE JANUARY 10, 1926- MARCH 18, 1997 Dear Mother, Today is a very special day in our hearts. Happy Birthday, Mom. We miss and love you dearly. Your loving daughters, Susan, Shelbe, & Jari Lynn.
March 19
IN LOVING MEMORY OF EDWARD L. HANBRIDGE Aug 21, 1910 – Mar 19, 1998 Every day Is An Anniversary Of Some Memory From The Past. It Is Often One Which Brightens The Countenance. Sometimes It Causes The Lift Of A Hand To Wipe Away A Tear. But, It Is Never To Be Forgotten. Written by Ed Hanbridge With much love, The Family The Burlington Free Press wishes to apologize to the family and friends of Edward L. Hanbridge. His In Memoriam was originally scheduled to appear in the paper on Sunday, March 19.
March 25
In Loving Memory of Floyd Clifford Heath Jr. March 25, 1949 November 6, 1999 It has been four months since God took you from us. There isn’t a day that goes by, that we don’t think of you. God saw he was getting tired, And a cure was not to be, So He put his arms around him, And whispered ""come with me.” With tear filled eyes, We watched him suffer, and fade away, Although we loved him deeply, We could not make him stay. A golden heart stopped beating, Hard working hands put to rest, God broke our hearts to prove to us, He only takes the best. Happy Birthday We love, and miss you dearly, Your loving wife and children He Will be Remembered A remarkable man is gone now, and the world seems a little lessened somehow, because he is not part of it anymore. Recalling favorite memories is what our hearts do best, happily remembering the good times we’ve shared, the closeness we’ve kept and the way that we’ve cared. And loving wishes the best things for you, for no one deserves them as much as you do. A day doesn’t go by that you aren’t in my thoughts. I miss you so much, but I know you had to go. We will meet again, but until then, I wanted to take a moment and wish you Happy Birthday. You’re like a beautiful long-stemmed rose! Sister Charlene
