"Dear Dad up above
Wrap our Mum with tender love
Together in death as you where in life
Reunited as husband and wife.

You called her name that fateful day
Who are we to make her stay.
All we ask don't be alone
Until the family trees regrown.

Until we meet up once again
We know your both free from pain
We know you'll guide us as time gos by
Our special parents in the sky.

Love you both Mum and Dad  miss you forever your heart broken
Daughter Julie xxxxxxxxxxx"

"Dad if you can hear me
Please listen to my prayers
Help Mum through her pain
And take away our fears.

We love you both so dearly
And we know you done your best
To stay with us forever
But you had to go to rest.

We need you more than ever
To send a loving hug
Wrap your arms around Mum
And give her all your Love.

Please don't let her leave us Dad
So soon after we lost you
Send us down a Angel Dad
To help to see her through.

Love and Miss you every day your broken hearted Daughter Julie xxx"

"Dad i want to hold your hand
To look upon your face again
But that can be no more
And all i can feel is pain.

I want to tell you i love you
And see you smiling eyes
I miss you Dad it hurt so much
Because then i realise.

You are no more with us Dad
My heart is broke in two
I know your now at peace
But i want to be with you.

My nights are full of memories
My days i just go on
I still cannot believe it Dad
That you are really gone.

But i must carry on this life
And pretend that i'm ok
But never will i forget you Dad
Or the day you went away.

Love and miss you everyday Dad
Your Heart Broken Daughter Julie xxxxxx"

"Dad i'm sitting all alone
thinking thoughts of you,
The times you took us to the park
and sometimes to the zoo.

I have so many memories dad
some vague and not so clear,
A memory i have of you
is sitting on a chair.

We would all gather round you dad
and wait and wait to see,
Who would be the first of us
To sit upon you knee.

You loved us all sincerely dad
my heart is broke in two,
Cause all i have are memories
To share from me to you.

The last time that i saw you dad
i sat and held your hand
I told you that i loved you dad
I hoped you'd understand

I know you had to leave us dad
but that cannot ease the pain,
The family life without you dad
will never be the same.

Loved and missed forever xxxxx"

"Uncle Will, the last time I seen you was only at the beginning of last year when you came to visit your Beloved sisters Nancy and Rita my darling Mum who I am sure you are now with in heaven putting the world to rites with a glass of whiskey or brandy with nanny and grandad and all our other loved ones who have passed over to the great beyond.  You came to Llandudno with  Aunty Jean, Alan, who I had not seen in years and Ian, we had such a laugh cause when you all got together you all made such fun out of anything and you were great company together.  I remember my mum crying when you all left cause she said that you had said to her, this is probably the last time we will see each other and she said she hoped not but I think you all knew in your heart of hearts that it was true.  I kept meaning to take my mum and Nancy to see you all in Liverpool but as it happens life gets in the way of the best of plans.  Just want to say that I loved you Nancy and my Mum very much and that I know your all together with your mum and dad, our nanny Mary and grandad William who you were named after and also to say your legacy's will live on in your children, grandchildren and great grand children and all of the extended family who's lives you have enriched.  Good night and God Bless Uncle Will, Aunty Nancy and my Mum Rita, we will love you and remember you always for the good times we shared.  RIP until we meet again. Xxxxxxx"

"Dad i cry so many tears
Enough to fill the sea
If they could make a wave
To bring you back to me

I would cry until the end of time
If only this was true
I have  never felt such pain Dad
As i have of losing you.

I know your watching over me
I feel it in my heart
But i cant stop the tears Dad
Why did we have to part

I know one day we'll meet again
And i can dry my tear's
Until then i have just memories
Of many happy years.

Love and miss you so much heart broken Daughter Julie xxxx"

"I only met you once but it was one of the best days of my life. All the pieces of the jigsaw were complete when I met you and your wonderful family. I thought about you many a time following our first meeting. You'll always be in my thoughts. RIP Grandad. ❤️"

"This is so hard and equally heartbreaking to put into words those memories I have of you, Grandad. What gives me strength is knowing that your life, and all those memories that we all have of you, are all good, all positive and we can all celebrate your life and what you meant to us all.

Grandad, I have many memories of you from when I was a child growing up. Most are from the times that me, John, mum and dad went to visit you and nan at the home you all lived in as a family for many years, at 2 Ashfield. I remember the roast dinners, the way you would often make us laugh or tease us (you called me "Pedro" a few times, I remember that so well). I remember you reading your newspapers.

Grandad, you always knew how to lighten the mood, I never saw you arguing with anyone or saying a bad word towards anyone.

Of all the memories I have of you, there is one in particular that stands out vividly in my mind, even though it's a humble example. It was very sunny day and we travelled up to Southport, by train if I remember correctly. I remember how sunny it was when we arrived and one of the first things we did was sit down on a bench in the shade and eat sandwiches. I even remember what we had on them. Ham, cheese and pickle. It must have been the first time I ever tried pickle. I have liked that combination ever since.

It's a simple memory, Grandad, but so vivid.

I want to finally say that you will always be an inspiration to us all. I, personally, will take a lot of that inspiration from you in my own life.

R.I.P. Grandad!!! Deeply missed, loved and remembered so fondly by all.

Peter xxx"
