Burt Wile (Burton Munroe Wile)
April 26, just an ordinary day in any calendar year. At least that is what I thought. Until this year — Burt passed away that day. Now, April 26 forever will have a reverence that is allotted to those days in our lives we always remember.
Cancer was cruel and punishing to Burt. His only saving grace was to relax and try to live each day as normal as possible. Our journey into the ‘Cancer World’ was very brief.
Empathy, understanding and heartfelt sorrow came to me from some of the most unexpected people. I am blessed with loving and treasured friends, so their tears and hugs were comfortable and familiar.
However, for those people who extended themselves toward me in respect and honour, I am forever in awe. Facing someone who had lost part of themselves to death is a big challenge. A sincere sympathy card says all the ‘right’ things.
The genius of Burt touched many lives. His friends (you know who you are) were his faithful fan club. His mechanical mind was always inventing, improving, simplifying all the tasks he encountered. His understated manner instilled confidence and intelligence. His adoration for his constant sidekick ‘Skipper’ — proved a deep love and caring that he proudly displayed. His devotion to me was most evident as all things stopped when I required his assistance. He was not ashamed when he was teased about my demands . . . he was proud.
The day of Burt’s funeral was heartbreaking. For me, to see so many people take time from their busy lives to say farewell to my beloved Burt was extremely gratifying. The sadness in the room was heavy. As Skipper and I listened to the prayers, hymns and eulogy, we felt Burt’s essence with us. We prayed for his peace and rest. It was very difficult to say goodbye, but if we had to do it, Mike Zinck at Dana L. Sweeny’s Funeral Home was just the man to help us do it, with grace and sensibility.
The days since have been upsetting. Our loneliness is the bond that makes me cherish my little fur-covered friend, and in turn he attaches to me like velcro. We comfort each other with our neediness.
The entire community of Blockhouse has opened their hearts to me. I am forever grateful for my neighbours, immediate family and Canada Post associations. Every kind word, every shed tear, every card, call and email unites us together with Burt as the tie that binds us. I’ve experienced more love and kindness in these rugged days than I ever expected. When the phone rings I am often surprised to hear kind words from folks who have had minimal contact with our lives. These unexpected events have strengthened my faith in my fellow man on this troubled planet.
Skipper and I will continue to rely on our friends and family to help us through the transition of believing Burt is not with us. We truly thank everyone who thinks of us and prays for our lives to be much more tender. We hope we are able to repay your help for us. If we are not able to do that we want everyone to know that we sincerely appreciate the little things as well as the big things you did for us.
Burt has left me with a legacy of kindness. With his patience and gentle ways, he influenced my attitude for life. Joy came in the small things in his life. Sorrow in true losses, not should haves. Delight in pleasing someone else. Regret seeing me cry. I hope I have learned his lessons well. If I’ve learned nothing his time with me would have been wasted. I must ensure that never happens.
Rochelle and ‘Skipper’
