We are very sorry to announce the passing of Mike Greig on October 14, 2018. He will be sadly missed by his three daughters, who will be taking him back home to British Columbia after his cremation, as there will be no official funeral. Michael Shane Greig was born on June 21, 1965 in Duncan, B.C. He was predeceased by his parents Dennis and Marie Greig and he has one sister, Susan. He loved and adored and was very proud of his daughters, Abbigail, Jasmine and Katrina. They were his world and he would have done anything for them. He was the kind of person who was never afraid to stand up for the things he believed in and the people he loved and cared about. We realize that not all of Mike’s history is here. To any family and friends who would like to add anything, please feel free to share who you are, how you know him and any favorite memories you have. You can send your memories and condolences to cherishedmemories@saskatel.net. In the past, Mike had mentioned he wanted Katrina to sing the following song for him after he passed, so we have included the lyrics to the song by Annie Lennox below. ~ “Into The West” ~ Lay down- Your sweet and weary head- Night is falling- You’ve come to journey’s end- Sleep now- And dream of the ones who came before- They are calling- From across the distant shore- Why do you weep?- What are these tears upon your face?- Soon you will see- All of your fears will pass away- Safe in my arms- You’re only sleeping- What can you see- On the horizon?- Why do the white gulls call?- Across the sea- A pale moon rises- The ships have come to carry you home- And all will turn- To silver glass- A light on the water- All souls pass - Hope fades- Into the world of night- Through shadows falling- Out of memory and time- Don’t say: <<We have come now to the end>>- White shores are calling- You and I will meet again- And you’ll be here in my arms- Just sleeping- What can you see- On the horizon?- Why do the white gulls call?- Across the sea- A pale moon rises- The ships have come to carry you home- And all will turn- To silver glass- A light on the water- Grey ships pass- Into the West-
