|Let the memory of Ricky be with us forever|
"On this second anniversary of your leaving us Ricky, we wake up as we did then, with our world upside down and wishing that we were closer to you so that you could feel our tender touch and love just as you did when you were born. Today, we still love you son and we feel your presence everyday. Mam said she spoke to you all night last night and I hear you willing me on to be happy and to live today as just another day. Not so easy though but for the love of you, and all those you have left behind, including your brothers Jason and Stephen, your sister Nicola,
,your son Marcus who is now 3, Monica who has continued giving him the love you gave him, your daughters Tia and Leona, and all your nieces and nephews, as well as your friends, we soldier on son.
We hope and pray that you are comforted by the presence if your grandparents and all your family around you in the great beyond today and always. As we are about to spend a reflective and nostalgic day to remind us of all the joys you brought to everyone, peach to you Ricky and may your soul and that of all the departed be at peace. God bless you son, be with all our love and best prayers. Mam and Dad xxxx"
"Happy 42nd Birthday Ricky! I wish I could share this happy moment with you and our son. I will make sure he will know what kind of loving father you were. Make sure he will continually contact with his grandparents! Wish you have a happy life in Heaven too! Love you xoxo"
"My dear husband, you are 41 today. Your 40th birthday party was like yesterday. You bought Mark Keating an old man walker as his "surprising" present and he rewrapped it up for your 40th later. It was hilarious! Thank you for sharing part of your life and looked after me and Marcus as much as you can. You taught me to be positive! Thank you for tolerating my hot tempers. Marcus is healthy and happy. I will try to raise him in the way you wanted. We will take you to your dream land this year. We will love you forever!!"
"Happy 41st Birthday my son! Many happy returns! What would your mam and I and your whole family, your beloved son, Marcus, your daughters Leona & Tia, your dear wife Monica and all your friends here in UK and Nanning, give to hear your voice and your laughter today? Although you may have the best birthday treat in heaven today, and I know the Lord and your grans and uncles will make sure of that, we will still miss you Ricky. Today, we will retrace and walk some steps that fondly remind us of you and in quiet contemplation, recall the beautiful son who came to us on this day 41 years ago and treated us with the most ecstatic of joys on becoming your parents. As we remember your laughs and your calls for everyone to be happy and cheer up whenever the glooms ever set in, mam and dad say ' We love you always son, we walk and talk with you everyday and for today God Bless you on your birthday that will never fade away for us, son'. Happy Birthday Ricky from all of us!"
"Ricky my son, on this my 65th birthday, despite it being a milestone I wish you were here to share this with dad. I know however that you will be proud of me son and that you will pray for me to continue what you started here on earth, including the support of your loving wife, your son and daughters. I miss you and I share today's joy with you son. Lovingly Dad. xx"
"Ricky you are the only person in my whole Paul family that i will never meet but one thing is sure, is that i've heard a lot about you all my life from my dad,my mum,your dad Judex,your mum Joan,your sister Nicola and your brother Stephen and i'm proud to have someone great as cousin. For me you will always be here as you have ever been and that's how i will honour your memories. Rest in peace my beloved cousin.
James Burty Paul"
"As I prepare for a memorial service for my son Ricky who left all of us, his wife Monica, young son Marcus, his two daughters, Leona and Tia, his mam, Joan, brothers Jay and Stephen, sister Nicola, and all his nephews and nieces, aunts and uncles, and all his friends here in the UK and in Nanning, China, I pray to the Lord to help us all send Ricky on his way to real peace with our hopes of seeing him again one day. You have been an excellent human being son and your memory will live on in the hearts of all the people you touched. Peace be with you Ricky. Love from Mam and Dad and all of us. Xx"
