They say when someone you love becomes a memory, the memory becomes a treasure and truly Aunty’s memories will be treasured by me forever. I can never forget the warm love and wise advice Aunty would give, always treating me like a daughter with her endless kind words, going back as far as my school-going days in Pakistan. I will always miss her but then now heaven has another angel and I have a second guardian angel.

My darling “muma” as u used to say when u left me a voice message. How I miss u. I listen to your voice messages tht r still on my phone n I recall with tears running down my face, all the happy hours we spent over the phone: you in Canada n I in the US. But to us, distance did not make a difference. We talked n laughed n I sang to u n u filled me in with the words when I forgot them n the hours would pass ... n suddenly my phone would die out. N I’d hv to recharge it 😀
Mum dear you were the youngest old person I’ve known. I could tell U anything n nothing shocked u.
U could hv a bawdy sense of humor n u were never offended if I was so upset about something tht I vented to u with a few cus words.
R short times together when I visited u in Canada were precious to me n I know they meant a lot to u too.
I always wished I lived closer so I could b there to love n care fr you better.
Mum darling u were the mother I never had. But u always said tht you would b with me even after you passed. I believe u r here with me now.
Though u often thru the years thought u were useless - bound to a wheel chair. At the mercy of others to lift you bathe n change the clothes, I believe you were wrong:
Through all the humiliation you felt because u were a very shy n private person, all u did show to all, was graciousness n gratitude.
From your wheel chair u radiated kindness n care fr those around u. U never let a caregiver pass by without a “Tk u my darling” or a “god bless you my child”
Even the meanest caregiver in time had to realize n change the way they were. You were a beautiful silent example of “actions speak louder than words”
You loved God n was ever faithful to the Mass.
You loved the hymn Amazing Grace. N mum, what amazing grace you had.
It is said that what’s inside of us comes out when r buttons r pressed. N you have gone through so much these last years: from living independently to being bedridden. From being able to give to others freely to having to ask for help n listen to some caregivers show impatience or be rough in their handling of you. Yes your buttons were pressed more than a few times.
But all that came out of you was gentleness n thanks. I try to b more like you n I thank you my mother.
Silently n alone U bore the sorrow when your brothers passed on. You wanted to go too. Now all of u r together. U r at last with yr darling mother n the husband you have loved n been faithful to all these years n I’m sure he’s singing this his favorite song to his darling wife: “Let me Call you sweet heart ... I’m in love with you...”😀
I will always miss you my mum but I am so happy for you. No more are u bound to a chair or bed. You r a glorious new You in a state of eternal love n happiness in Gods presence. How lucky you are. I am so proud to have known you. So proud that you called me your daughter. So proud you were for a short but wonderful time, My Mother.

I only remember Nana smiling and laughing. She was the most positive influential person I know with a unique gift to brighten up any room, place and person; even when it seemed impossible! She helped me see a bit of heaven.. on earth.

Dear Terry and family,
Fond memories are what we have to remember our dearly departed Aunty Sheila who we considered our mother. We were truly blessed to have known such an amazing and wonderful person, who had a heart of 'Gold' and who was the most kind, patient and generous human being that we met. Please accept our condolences and just know that we are here for you and please do not hesitate to reach out, especially during this difficult time. We will miss her very, very dearly.

From: Terence Lushington
To my MOM ,
Sheila to others and Aunty Sheila to many .
I thank all of you and family and read all your gifts of personal moments and words shared with mom present or in the far past and all I can add if you had not followed her journey's ups and owns in the last 15 years you would not feel the passion of her growth in her humanity and her close to death multiple experiences and how the hand of our Lord touched with Jesus,Padri Peo,St Anthony,Mother Mary, our Pope and all who she prayed too would miraculously bring her back for a new beginning.
Even away from mom in Toronto I shared time daily with her after her 10 am Mass and being at the hospital when she fell ill and singing to her and with her was so uplifting.
With her live angels Alan and Yolande on her left and right side I was always assured of her safety.
These are moments that make you choke and swallow and feel the bond of love and I wish and pray that we all share that with someone in our lives.
My eulogy summed my complete mom and upon request I would be honoured to share her life with you for as at some point she had touched you with HER! moments of love,wit,sharing,caring ,wisdom and compassion.
My moms passing was all according to her wishes and as fate might have it the whole procession passed by all her old residences she lived in bidding her last farewell.
She always loved having the touch of Irish in us and she was buried on St Patricks Day with a complete private ceramony at The National Field Of Honour on Saturday.
In moms memory and her words she would have wanted nothing more then to extend all love and kisses to all who attended and those who payed her farewell.
( LIFE IS NOT ABOUT THE AMOUNT OF BREATH'S WE TAKE,BUT ABOUT THE MOMENT THAT TAKES ONE'S BREATH AWAY !)
I hope you all got that moment to share with my beloved Mother who has joined Dad in the kingdom of Heaven
Stay Well and Blessed
