Nunes-Pottinger Funeral Service Staff send our condolences to family and friends. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.

From: Connie Nordheimer
Relation: I am her daughter

I thought of you with love today but that is nothing new,
I thought of you yesterday and days before that too,
I think of you in silence and often speak your name,
All I have is memories and your picture in a frame.
It broke my heart to lose you but you did not go alone,
A part of me went with you the day God took you home.
Your memory is my keepsake with which I’ll never part
God has you in his keeping I have you in my heart.

To a wonderful mother who will be sadly missed. You gave me life and taught me well, I will always be grateful.
With love from your daughter Connie

Thina was laid to rest on May 5, 2010 at Osoyoos Lakeview Cemetery. It was an intimate and beautiful ceremony and I would like to share one of the readings. READING: “I AM THE WIND”

REMEMBER THINA,
WHEN THE WIND CARESSES THE BOUGHS,
AND THE LEAVES RUSTLE WITH DELIGHT;

REMEMBER THINA,
WHEN THE SUN WARMS THE EARTH,
THE GRASSES GREEN AND SPRING BLOOMS;

REMEMBER THINA,
WHEN THE GENTLE RAIN BEADS ON YOUR CHEEK,
WHEN EVERYTHING IS FRESH AND NEW;

REMEMBER THINA,
WHEN YOU TOUCH THE EARTH
AND IT GIVES FORTH ITS TREASURE INTO YOUR HAND;

REMEMBER THINA,
BECAUSE SHE IS THE EARTH AND THE RAIN;
SHE IS THE SUN AND SHE IS IN THE WIND;

AND
SHE WILL BE WITH YOU ALWAYS.

A special thankyou to Nunes-Pottinger.

Relation: your grand daughter

I never really knew you, you didn’t want me to. My momm and I are very close, I know she would want us to. So, better now than never, after all you need to know… if my mother loves you like I do her, then our love would always grow … It breaks my heart to see her sad, so now I will cry too. Thank you for the sacrifices, all the pain that you went through. You gave me the most beautiful mother, so kind, and gracious You, know you taught her well, she is strong, loving, and true, if these are also some of your traits then I wish I knew you too… There is no me without you, I love you, and thank you, grand mother…thank you!

From: Mary Ann Sanderson
Relation: friend & grandmother to my children
