In Memoriam

Our dearest daddy, another year passes without you by our side. 21 years ago today our lives changed forever leaving us heartbroken once again. No words, no verse can express the sadness we now feel in our hearts, nor can time heal our sorrow and stop our tears. We are not separated, you are with us in our loving memories and in our broken heart. We love and miss you more every day and will forever. We cherish the beautiful memories and love we shared with each other. You have given us so many gifts in life, big and small gifts but most of all you have given us your unconditional love, the greatest gift of all. Our day will come when we are no longer apart and when we come back together we will smile and hold you close to us forever never to part again. Stay close to our dear mom, grandma and grandpa. Your ever loving and devoted family xxxxx


(Nee Marr) – Twenty years have passed since I kissed you goodbye and it has flown by. Many have come and gone since then but none have made me so sad. Of all the precious gifts in life, big and small, having you as my mother was the greatest gift. Every day I think of you with tears of joy and sadness but hopefully mum you have found your eternal peace. Your beloved daughter Hayley and son-in-law Jim. xxx
