Hi Barbara, hope you are enjoying yourself up there in heaven and have caught Elvis, seriously though I miss you and your hugs you used to give me when we were young and I'd got another hiding off Mum when I'd taken blame for something or other, you were always there for me, and I wish God hard taken me instead so you could have seen the wonderful way your girls have worked out and the way they work hard like you did for their children, I will always love and miss you, you were always my world, Go and sing with the angels and thank you for all you did for me. Love always, Bernardxxxx

Hi Barbara, Still missing you so much. You were more than a sister to me I remember how you really looked after me. I think about you every day and wonder what you would be doing if you were still with us. I remember coming for drinks at your flat and when we used to talk about what's happening in the family or just day to day things. Hope you've met up with Cousin Jim as he's gone to heaven too now. Love and miss you more than life itself I will see you when God decides it's my time Love always. Bernard. xxxxx

Hi Barbara, Still cant accept that my beautiful sister is now an angel up there in heaven. Please look down on your children and help them. Maggie I can see is so happy now shes with Rob. She still needs looking after by you, as does Janet and Maz, and due to the way you brought them up they all work and are so successful and you would be so proudof all of them. You were my best friend as well as my sister and looked after me when I was little and I thank you so much for that. You were and are a wonderful person who saw the good in everyone. Love you forever. Bernard. xxxxxxxx

Sleep well, Your my angel.xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Hi Barbara, Once again I am here, and it seems that since you and Mum went to Heaven, the whole family has broke up, your daughter Maggie is sticking up for Jade when all Jade is doing is laugfhing at her and Janet for believing her when she tells them lies and not the full truth about the messages she responds to when I put something online which is nothing to do with her, They will Learn. Hope you and Mum are Ok, Love and miss you loads. Bernard. xxxx

Hi Barbara, They had a Service at St Srephens Church to celebrate the lives of the people who died at Willow Woods in the last six months, including Mum, but I did not go as It looked to me that it would be more about Willow Wood Hospice than the people who died and they did not have a Service like that when we lost you, Hope you are ok with mum and Stephanie.
