Kae was a kind person who adored her husband, sons and granddaughters and simply hated injustice. She asked that the following be quoted “If by chance you wish to remember me, do it with a kind word or deed to someone who needs you. If you do what I have asked, I will live forever”.
In accordance with her request no service will be held. Interment in the Veteran’s Cemetery, Shaunavon, Sask.
“She has put on invisibility
Dear Lord, I cannot see but this I know,
Although the road ascends
And passes from my sight
That there will be no other night.
That You will take her gently by the hand
And lead her on
Along the road of life that never ends,
And she will find it is not death but dawn.
I do not doubt that You are there as here,
And You will hold her dear”.
(from The Traveller – James Dillet Freeman)
