You worked so hard for those you loved,
You always did your best,
You fought until you could no more,
And now you are at rest

Loving Husband of Janet
I miss the times that we once had,
But one day, once again
I’ll hold you close and laugh with you
I just wish I knew when
Each moment till that day arrives
Until my time is through
I’ll miss you more than words can say
And always think of you

Our togetherness was our happiness

Goodnight pussycat, l love you

There could never be another one like you

DAD YOU WERE MY HERO
You held my hand
When I was small
You caught me when I fell
Your the hero of my childhood
And my later years as well

And every time I think of you
My heart still fills with pride
Though I’ll always miss you Dad
I know your by my side

In laughter and in sorrow
In sunshine and through rain
I know you’re watching over me
Until me meet again

We Love You Rest Easy Old Boy

You were always kind and caring
And so understanding too,
And, if help was ever needed Dad
It so freely came from you.

We love you more than ever and that love will continue to grow.

In our hearts you will always be remembered

……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

As teardrops fall of loving memories to us all,
You have given us so much in life and love that we couldn’t have asked for more.
Not a day will past without you in our hearts, your jokes,
Your laughter and banter will be there for us to hold.
We love you more then you could know and always will.
Your time with us may be gone,
But your memories and legacy will live on.
We love you always Tony/Pop Pop
Rory, Case and Jamesy.
