Catherine (Swanson) Piper

PIPER, Catherine (Swanson)

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved Nana, Catherine, born on September 23, 1912, died peacefully at her home on April 11, 2007. She was predeceased by her husband Stan of 57 years in 2001 and is survived by son Stan (Jackie) and grand-daughters: Amanda (Bryce), Bryn, Morgan, and great-grand-daughter MaKayla. Special thank you for the compassion and care extended to Mom by Dr. Manhas, Cowichan Home Support and her dear neighbours: Del and Monique. A private family graveside service will be held. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Canadian Cancer Society or to Chemainus Health Care Centre would be appreciated.

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 too long.

And not with your head bowed low.

Remember the love we all must take

And each must go alone.

It’s part of the Master’s plan,

A step on the road to home.

so when you are lonely and sick at heart,

Go to the friends we know

and bury your sorrows in doing good deeds

Miss me – but let me go
