You welcomed me into your family with open arms 30 years ago. The note you gave to Blair and I on our wedding day gave me assurance I would be part of your family forever. You have worked so hard, however the time has come for you to put your feet up now. I love you Bugs!

Love ‘Your daughter in law’ x


Pop, I am beyond lucky to have had an amazing pop in you and to have been able to share the last 22 years with you! I will miss you so much and I take comfort in the fact that you are now reunited with dad! Love always Lily x


Pop, you are my everything. All you taught me and showed me I will take on board. Thank you for being ‘just pop’ Ollie21
