Patricia Costa MAXTED

Maxted, Patricia Costa passed away peacefully at the age of 57 years old on May 22, 2003 at the Nanaimo Regional General Hospital. To the very end Patti continued to uplift and inspire her many friends with her zest for life and her generous spirit. Patti kept the following poem with her

Cancer is so limited

It cannot cripple love

It cannot shatter hope

It cannot corrode faith

It cannot eat away peace

It cannot destroy confidence

It cannot kill friendship

It cannot shut out memories

It cannot silence courage

It cannot invade the soul

It cannot reduce eternal life

It cannot quench the spirit

It cannot lessen the power of

the resurrection.

Nancy Johnson
