  7. Finding you guys a home was one of the high lights of my real estate career and also relating the story of being stopped in Coquitlam at 2:00 AM by the RCMP the night we finalized the deal was quite an experience. May God give you condolence – our prayers are with you – much love … Bill & Bonnie

  8. Pat, I was so sorry to hear that John passed away. I will not be able to attend his funeral, but will be thinking of you and your family.

    To Pat and to Dan and the family of the Late John McCarron.

    I was sad to learn of the death of John. I have heard Dan talk about him and understand from that that he was a much loved and admired Husband, Father, Grandfather and Brother.

    May flights of angels lead you on your way
    To paradise and to the eternal day
    May martyrs greet you after death’s dark night
    And bid you enter into Zion’s light
    May choirs of angels sing you to your rest
    With once poor Lazarus, be forever blest
    Join in the chorus that shall never cease
    Rest in His presence in eternal peace.

    I will endeavour to get a Mass said in his memory down here in Christchurch, New Zealand. I will also ask the Carmelite Sisters to pray for him and the family.

    A blessing for strength to the family and friends in the coming days as you begin to learn how to live around the hole left by such a kind and caring person.

    “In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.” John 14:2.

    Eternal Rest.
