Even after the candle has been extinguished, we can still feel the warmth of its flame and remember how it flickered and danced with the tiniest breath of air. We can no longer see our loved ones, but the light they brought to our lives still burns brightly in our memories and our hearts forever ~ Wanda PERSONAL ALTERNATIVE FUNERAL SERVICES Unit 1, 6828 – 50 Avenue Red Deer, Alberta T4N 5G1 403-341-5181 entrusted with arrangements.
