ForeverMissed

In loving memory of Fran Nicol who passed away on 14th August 2007.

Fran was born on 10th January 1952 in Manchester and attended Moss House High School where she met Alex when she was 12 years old. They became childhood sweethearts and later married in 1970 and had their only child, Lisa, in 1972.

Fran qualified as a lawyer in 1978 and practiced in Manchester for the same law firm until she retired from the profession in 2000.

Fran spent the last 5 years of her life in Southern Spain where she moved in 2002 with Alex and Lisa. Prior to the move the family lived in Bury, Manchester, UK where Fran was a keen and regular tennis player at Bamford Tennis Club

All who knew her loved her so much and her passing has left a gaping hole in all the lives of her family and friends.

We love her, and miss her very much.

Wow, 65 I can't believe how the years fly by. Do you qualify for a pension there or do Angels not get any older. I have.nt gone bald so you still can't divorce me seems you have me for eternity. Happy birthday my love and big hug and kisses to Lisa too. Love you both so much and much more!!

God knows I miss you both so much, my heart breaks every day that you both are not here in my physical presence but you are both all around me in everything I do.

Two Angels met in heaven last night,
To talk and laugh about their past life,
One of them was my daughter, The other was my wife,

They were taken six years apart,
and together they live forever in my heart,

I wonder if they know just how I feel
or the void they left behind,
The depth of love I share for them
or that special place in my mind.

Two angels met in heaven last night,
I saw them on a star,
My Daughter and my Wife,
Whom I worship from afar.

They only wish me good in life,
Their happiness is mine,
My Baby and My Wife,
Two Angels and the're ours."

Godbless you both. I expect your birthday went with a bang up there, like it did down here. Godbless Love Chris and Nanxxx

My Dear Fran, There isn't a day goes by that I don't speak about you and Lisa, and tell people what a wonderful life we had together. You are both forever in my heart. I wrote this for you yesterday, I hope you enjoy it.

Two Angels met in heaven last night,
To talk and laugh about their past life,
One of them was my daughter, The other was my wife,

They were taken six years apart,
and together they live forever in my heart,

I wonder if they know just how I feel
or the void they left behind,
The depth of love I share for them
or that special place in my mind.

Two angels met in heaven last night,
I saw them on a star,
My Daughter and my Wife,
Whom I worship from afar.

They only wish me good in life,
Their happiness is mine,
My Baby and My Wife,
Two Angels and the're ours.

Our Baby

Shared by Alex Nicol on January 26, 2014

Our little baby Lisa is now with you, taken even younger than you were on 11th December 2013. She missed you so much as I do. I sit here now writing this totally broke hearted and wondering what life is all about, I'm searching for answers and can't seem to find any. Lisa was my strength in your passing and now I have neither of you save in my heart I cherish you both so much and one day we will be re-united this I know but in the meantime for whatever wrongs I have done in my life I have to remain broken into shattered pieces just waiting, just waiting. I love you both so very much. Yours forever Alex.

A Christmas Poem

Shared by Lisa Nicol on December 21, 2009

This is christmas in Heaven
I see the countless
Christmas trees
around the world below
With tiny lights, like Heaven's stars,
reflecting on the snow
The sight is so spectacular,
please wipe away the tear
For I am spending Christmas with
Jesus Christ this year.
I hear the many Christmas songs
that people hold so dear
But the sounds of music can't compare
with the Christmas choir up here.
I have no words to tell you,
the joy their voices bring,
For it is beyond description,
to hear the angels sing.
I know how much you miss me,
I see the pain inside your heart.
But I am not so far away,
We really aren't apart.
So be happy for me, dear ones,
You know I hold you dear.
And be glad I'm spending Christmas
with Jesus Christ this year.
I sent you each a special gift,
from my heavenly home

above.
I sent you each a memory
of my undying love.
After all, love is a gift more precious
than pure gold.
was always most important
the stories Jesus told.
Please love and keep each other,
my Father said to do.
I can't count the blessing or love
he has for each of you.
So have a Merry Christmas and
Wipe away that tear
Remember, I am spending Christmas with Jesus Christ this year.

A poem for you mum!!

When Tomorrow Starts Without Me
When tomorrow starts without me,
And I'm not there to see,
If the sun should rise and find your eyes
All filled with tears for me:

I wish you wouldn't cry
The way you did today,
While thinking of the many things,
We didn't get to say

I know how much you love me,
As much as I love you,
And each time that you think of me,
I know you'll miss me too:

But when tomorrow starts without me,
Please try to understand,
That an angel came and called my name,
And took me by the hand.

And said my place was ready,
In heaven far above,
And that I'd have to leave behind
All those I dearly love.

But when I walked through heaven's gates,
I felt so much at home.
When God looked down and smiled at me,
From His great golden throne,

He said, "This is eternity.
And all I've promised you.
Today your life on earth is past,
But here life starts anew."

"I promise no tomorrow,
But today will always last,
And since each day's the same way
There's no longing for the past."

So when tomorrow starts without me,
Don't think we're far apart,
For every time you think of me,
I'm right here, in your heart.
