Bonnetta Susan Vrabel

It is with a heavy heart that we announce the recent passing of Bonnetta Vrabel on Oct 13, 2018. The following poem was special to Bonnetta and we would like to share it with you.

“To my dearest family, some things I’d like to say. But first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay. I’m writing this from Heaven. Here, there’s no more tears or sadness; Here is just eternal love.

Please do not be unhappy just because I’m out of sight. Remember that I’m with you every morning, noon and night. That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through. God picked me up and hugged me and He said, “I welcome you.”

God gave me a list of things, that he wished for me to do. And foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you. And when you lie in bed at night the day’s chores put to flight. God and I closest to you…in the middle of the night.

When you think of my life on earth, and all those loving years. Because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears. But do not be afraid to cry: it does relieve the pain. Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain.

One thing is for certain, though my life on earth is over. I’m closer to you now, than I ever was before.

When you’re walking down the street and you’ve got Me on your mind; I’m walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.

And when it’s time for you to go…from that body to be free. Remember you’re not going…you’re coming here to Me.

And I will always love you from the land up above. We’ll be in touch again…P.S. God sends His love.”

We miss you more than ever Frank, Christopher and Curtis, Jody and the grandbabies

Love forever and always, your entire family.

In lieu of flowers, please donate to the BC Cancer Society or BC Children’s hospital in Bonnetta’s name.
