Jean Cardinell has passed into the nearer presence of God

I am writing to let you know that Jean Cardinell has passed into the nearer presence of God this morning. A celebration of Jean’s life is being held at St. James Anglican Church on Saturday, August 30th at 1pm with family and¬†friends. Everyone is welcome!
I have spoken with Father Kevin Bothwell¬†who has been in touch with the family and they are hoping to have as¬†many scouters – young and old –¬†as possible attend¬†the service. Please let me know if you¬†expect to attend¬†so we can plan food.
Ashes will be present and a procession with colour party would be much appreciated. Jeff and I will coordinate that. I asked Fr Kevin if it would be appropriate that we sing¬†a song for Jean and he said absolutely.¬†As a suggestion, words to ‘In my dreams I’m going back to Gilwell’ (the Gilwell Hymn) which is short and Back to Gilwell are attached. I¬†can make copies of the music and words for the service.
If you have any ideas to add a Scouting flavour to the service, please pass them along and I’ll take them to Fr Kevin..
Please join us for a final farewell to Jean on Saturday, Aug 30 at 1pm!
Yours in Scouting,

Diane Hilborn (519) 766-9823
