Buying flowers from us ensures that your order will be fulfilled through working with a network florists that are trusted by local funeral homes and recognized partners of the funeral industry. A customized message, along with a photo of your selected arrangement will remain in perpetuity within this memorial website. This service also includes “Smart Select” whereby the store notifies you if your floral selection has already been selected by another sender. This allows you the opportunity to choose a different product to ensure the family has a beautiful and unique selection of unique floral arrangements.
The price of these selections also includes the funeral home’s care of the flowers after the funeral and the delivery to the family or facility of choice where they can be rearranged and enjoyed by others for a longer period.
The solitude and quiet peace of a flickering candle has long been a symbol of remembrance. Each candle lit will remain lit within this memorial website for the period you select. Your thoughtful gesture will be captured both in the candle as well as listed in perpetuity within the tributes section.
In today’s changing world with climate change and environment concerns, “Honoring a Life” allows for family and friends to plant a memorial tree in honor of their loved one and friend. The purchase of a tree creates a beautiful permanent record on the Honoring a Life website, www.honoringalife.org. Each tree is planted through the efforts of Forestry Services throughout North America who determine where the greatest needs for reforestation are. Once planted, the geographical location where the tree is planted will be added to the record. A beautiful card is also sent to the family signifying your thoughtful gesture.
Placeholder - to be replaced with Donations
We are proud to provide this service allowing friends and family to donate to any registered charity throughout North America. You will receive an official tax receipt immediately via email and your thoughtful gesture will remain on this memorial website in perpetuity.
The time surrounding a death can often bring unexpected final expenses for the family far beyond the funeral itself. We are pleased to offer the ability for friends and relatives to financially support the family during their time of loss as an alternative to flowers and other sympathy gestures.
This memorial currently does not have financial support enabled.

GORDON JAMES DOPSON
April 24, 1954 - June 3, 2012
It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Gordie, with his family by his side, Sunday June 3, 2012 after fighting a brave battle with cancer.
Gord will be lovingly remembered by his mom, Agnes; brother, Tom (wife Debbie); cat Stucky; as well as nieces, nephew, aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends. Predeceased by his father (Bill) and sister (Debbie).
Born April 24, 1954 in Winnipeg, Gordie "Peanut" spent most of his life in the West End of Winnipeg. In 2007, he moved to Gunton to take care of his Mom. He attended school at Sargent Park, and RB Russell. He worked with the City of Winnipeg Waterworks Department until his retirement.
He was a friend to animals, an avid recycler, and he loved a good meal! He enjoyed a good conversation or a friendly debate. Gordie was generous with his time in helping or caring for others. He was a great son, brother, uncle, friend, and neighbour who will be greatly missed!
Our family would like to thank the Teulon and Gunton community for all of their support. A special thanks to his Mom's best friend Diane.
A Memorial Service will be held Sunday June 10th at 1pm at Cropo Funeral Chapel, 1442 Main Street and an interment will follow on Monday June 11th at 11am at Chapel Lawn.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Gordie's memory to the Salvation Army.
