This memorial website was created in the memory of our Dad ,very much missed and loved by every one and a great Dad ,ONE OF THE BEST ,Royce Mowbray Thomas,born on September 14, 1933 .me being dads eldest son thought it was up to me to start the web site to keep dads memory alive ,,,
Dad passed away on July 28, 1998. at 5.25 pm in Wanganui hospital ,he was under there care and he died they had no idea how to treat him,
it shouldnt of happened,, ,a great shock to us all ,We will remember him and love him forever,taken much to soon .only 64 years old .we dont have a grave site or memorial at a cemitery to visit,which is hard but by his wishes he was cremated and his ashes spread at sea,as he loved to fish,and loved the sea.he will always be in our hearts and thoughts .
Thank you so much for being my dad and loving me as you did ...ill never forget that ever   . ...it ment so much to me ..
17 years later june 22 ,2015 at 12.05am and our mum also died under treatment while at Wanganui hosptial,once again ,it shouldnt have happened again ..... we had to say good bye to mum also ...SO VERY VERY MUCH UNFAIR ...
