Ordering through the funeral home helps ensure your order will be placed through a local flower shop with whom the funeral home has a personal and trusting relationship with. Through this service, you will be able to leave a longer message of support to the family via a card with the picture of your selection that will be included with your thoughtful gesture. As well as a photo of your arrangement and message 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, allowing you the opportunity to choose a different arrangement if you wish.
The price of these selections also include the funeral home caring for the flowers after the funeral and delivering them to the family, or various care facilities 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.

Cory Douglas Bish was born in Galahad, AB. on Aug 19, 1963 and passed away suddenly on Dec 22, 2013 at the age of 50 years. Cory had a gentle, giving, sensitive personality, and would often be moved to tears when hearing of someone's trials or pain. He was a diligent worker, proud of his farm, his crops, his machinery, and always enjoyed the satisfaction of a job well done. The custom work he did for others always reflected the effort he put in for his own. Cory's love for his family and friends was so obvious to all who knew him. He always had a ready smile, and a helping hand. He took precious care of his parents and was so proud of his heritage. He loved his boys, his folks, his sister and her family. He adored his grandchildren and was a proud papa. He was quick to brag of his stepsons, and daughters-in-law, and their accomplishments. Cory and Diane spoke often, in their quiet times together, of their gratitude for each other. Cory was predeceased by his son Ryan in 2010. Cory is survived by his wife Diane, son Dylan, and his girlfriend Samantha Volk, his parents, Doug and Rae Bish, his sister Peggy, and her husband Bob Ruzicka, and their children Shaun and Janelle. He will be sadly missed by his stepsons Aaron Lassu, wife Trina, Mark Lassu, wife Jaclyn, Neil Lassu and his fiance Sarah. His grandchildren Avery, Andrew, Nevaeh and Ella will miss the papa they so loved. Cory also leaves to mourn his loss Diane's parents, Lorne and Jean Hamilton, and her siblings and their families, as well as a host of many dear friends and relatives. A memorial service will be held at 2:00 p.m. on Monday, December 30, 2013 at the Forestburg Community Hall. Memorial donations may be made to Stars or a charity of the donor's choice.
