CARRUTHERS, Alan, November 2002…
"We hold our tears when we hear your name,
Life without you is just not the same.
We all know the sorrow we share.

As long as life and memories last,
We'll always treasure the past."
Your loving family, Enid, Darrell, Lawrence, Wayne, Faye, Lorraine, Jim, Thanaso and Marika
