2005 ~ LEVI FERGUSON ~ 2020

Our most beloved and sweet, Levi Kaleb Ferguson, known to his dad, Kevin Ferguson and sisters, Micah and Jirah Ferguson as our “Bubba”, went to be with Jesus before we ever dreamed he would on September 3rd, 2020. Levi is living his dream with every desire of his heart being fulfilled now in heaven with his beautiful mom, Melanie. Levi was so excited for life and for all that was ahead. He loved hunting and fishing and was most passionate about loving every day no matter what he did. He never failed to have an idea of what we should go do. Each day we had a spare moment, Levi always had a plan. He loved sports and especially enjoyed playing volleyball and baseball at Notre Dame Academy. He was a member of many city championship teams and was very excited to start learning the game of golf this year, his final junior high year, in Grade 9. Levi was so excited to have his new moped and was enjoying the independence it gave him to make candy runs when ever his sweet tooth kicked in…Lol. (Bubba loved his Blue Jolly Ranchers). Levi loved to be out in the outdoors every chance he could get. He always looked forward to camping, hunting, and fishing with his dad, family, and friends. Levi was about to turn 15 and was so excited for this upcoming hunting season; to try and outdo last year’s WT buck, especially as he was drawn for his first Mule Buck with his dad. Levi was always the life of the party! I heard it said that if you had Levi’s attention you knew you had everyone’s attention. Levi was and will always be remembered as a great young man who loved to help the underdog and encouraged everyone. He was a fun-loving teenager who always had a smile on his face that was so contagious you could not help but to join him in a smile. He lit up the room every time he walked in. He was a great teammate, classmate, and friend to many. Levi will always be in the centre of his family’s hearts, grandparents, Lloyd & Elaine Ferguson and Ken & Donna Serr, Uncle and Auntie, Jeff & Tamara Noon; and cousins Kai, Halle, and Annie Noon.

I love you Levi to Heaven & back times infinity, Dad XOXO
But…
“The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing. He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, he refreshes my soul. He guides me along the right paths for his name’s sake. Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. Surely your goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever."
Psalms 23:1-6 NIV

KENNETH LAWRENCE IVARSON

August 26, 1937 – August 27, 2020

Let Me Go
Miss me, but let me go.
When I come to the end of the road
and the sun has set for me
I want no rites in a gloom filled room
Why cry for a soul set free.
Miss me a little, but not for long
and not with your head bowed low.
Remember the love that we once shared.
Miss me, but let me go.
For this journey that we all must take and each must go alone.
It's all a part of the masters plan.
A step on the road to home.
When you are lonely and sick of heart,
go to the friends we know
bury your sorrows in doing good deeds. Miss me, but let me go.

Sadly missed and always loved
Helen Riddle and Families
