<div itemprop="description">It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Terrence (Terry) Genest, loving husband, father and grandfather. Terry passed away at the Red Deer Regional Hospital on April 1, 2017 at the age of 72. <br>He is lovingly remembered by his wife Karen; his daughter Shelley Coates (Mark) of Red Deer and their children Riley and Madison; and his son Jeff (Bonnie) of Edmonton and their children Isaac and Olivia. He will also be missed by his sisters Rose Marie Benesch (Fred) of Victoria, BC; Carole Cash (John) of Parksville, BC; and Joan Czotter of Victoria, BC. Terry is predeceased by his parents Art and Babe Genest; his sister Beverly Lich; his brother Tedd Genest; and his brother in law Kal Czotter. <br> <br>A Meditation: <br> <br>Death is nothing at all. <br>It does not count. <br>I have only slipped away into the next room. <br>Nothing has happened. <br> <br>Everything remains exactly as it was. <br>I am I, and you are you, <br>and the old life that we lived so fondly together is untouched, unchanged. <br>Whatever we were to each other, that we are still. <br> <br>Call me by the old familiar name. <br>Speak of me in the easy way which you always used. <br>Put no difference into your tone. <br>Wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow. <br> <br>Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes that we enjoyed together. <br>Play, smile, think of me, pray for me. <br>Let my name be ever the household word that it always was. <br>Let it be spoken without an effort, without the ghost of a shadow upon it. <br> <br>Life means all that it ever meant. <br>It is the same as it ever was. <br>There is absolute and unbroken continuity. <br>What is this death but a negligible accident? <br> <br>Why should I be out of mind because I am out of sight? <br>I am but waiting for you, for an interval, <br>somewhere very near, <br>just round the corner. <br> <br>All is well. <br>Nothing is hurt; nothing is lost. <br>One brief moment and all will be as it was before. <br>How we shall laugh at the trouble of parting when we meet again! <br> <br> <br>Canon Henry Scott Holland (1847 - 1918 ) <br> <br> <br>At Terry’s request there will be no funeral service held. Memorial donations may be made directly to the Heart and Stroke Foundation, 144-5241 Calgary Trail NW, Edmonton AB T6H 5G8, Canadian Diabetes Association, 6-5015 48 St, Red Deer AB T4N 1S9, or to a charity of your choice.</div>
