In Memoriams


Our dearest Dad another year goes by without you by our side. Twenty one years today our lives changed forever and again left us with a broken-heart. No words, no verse, can express the sadness we now feel in our hearts, nor can time heal our heartache and stop our tears flowing. We are not apart, you are with us in our loving memories and in our broken-heart. We love and miss you more each and everyday and will forever more. We cherish the beautiful memories and the love we shared together. You gave us so many gifts in life, gifts both great and small but most of all you gave us your unconditional love the greatest gift of all. Our day will come when we are no longer apart and when we come together again, we will smile and hold you close to us forever, never to part ever again. Stay close with our dear Mum, Grandma and Grandad. Your ever loving and devoted family xxxxx


(Nee Marr) - Twenty years since I kissed you goodbye and it has gone in the blink of an eye. Many have come and gone since but no other has made me feel so sad. Of all the precious gifts in life, however great or small, to have had you as my Mum was the greatest gift of all. Every day I think of you, with tears of joy and grief, but hopefully mum you have found your eternal peace. Your loving daughter Hayley and son in law Jim. xxx
