In Memoriams


Four years on 14th May I wish that I could see you, just for a little while, I wish I could hold your hand and long to see you smile, But wishing gets me nowhere and longing is in vain, So here you will stay within my heart, until we meet together again. I love you now and will forever and miss you so so much. God Bless you darling, your devoted Wife Marie xx


24 years today on Friday 17th May. Silent memories keep you near Joan, as time unfolds another year. Love and miss you so very much sweetheart. Your devoted partner Brian xx

Love always your loving wife Janet and beautiful daughter Rebekah, husband Stephen, and baby Henry Stuart. Lots of hugs and kissed always. Your Darling Wife Janet xxxx
