My Story

On November 15, 2007 my mother Mary age 60 lost her courages battle with lung cancer.
Born in Halifax, Nova Scotia September 8, 1947. The daughter of the late Thomas and Mary (Wickwire) MacBournie. Sister to Robert, Vernon and Brenda. Mother to Darlene, Bertha, Derek and Kenneth. Dear mother in law to Bill. Grammie to Tyler, Victor, Laura, Katelyn, Brooklyn and Evan. 

Mary was a health care worker who worked for many years taking care of the elderly. She put her heart and soul into everyone around her. She was the rock that held our family together. Now that she is gone we have such a void in all our lives. She was a beacon of light that always shone and now she shines down on us from the heavens. In her memory her granddaughter Laura wrote this poem.

Dear Grammie,
You were my shoulder to cry on my mom was your rock and now you are mine.
I did not think you would go so soon.
I did not think it was your time.
You were my rock you held me down.
I think of you twice and that is day and night.
You did not go down without a fight.
You gave it your all you gave it your might.
I did not think it was your time to leave.
Now I am left here wthout you
left here to grieve.
I cry looking up at the sky because I did not get to say goodbye.
So I'm saying it now grammie goodbye Grammie goodbye.

My mom will be missed by so many people , she touched many peoples lives . She was and will always be my best friend  . I love you mom and miss you so very much.
