A remarkable life that spanned 98 years was honoured last week as family and friends united at Cook’s to say goodbye to a much loved lady, Lisa Morice. Pastor Findley welcomed everyone and provided guidance and insight to the spiritual journey of her eternal life… daughter, Sharon spoke warmly of her mother before a video tribute of pictures with a special song, “My Friend”, was presented in reflection of Lisa’s life… a time of fellowship and refreshments followed before the journey to the Memory Gardens in Swift Current, where she joined her husband, Mel… the presence of family offered a personal touch as her grandchildren respectfully acted as pallbearers, carrying grandma to her place of rest.
Lift up your hearts and share with me…
God wanted me now, He set me free.
Her Life Lived…
Her Life Cherished…
Her Life Honoured.
