Hi Mom, I thought I was doing well today kept busy went to work. But tonight I'm sad- its 12 years today since we lost you.

I'm gonna light a candle and remember you, the way I know you would like me to remember you. The good times, the wisdom you imparted, your smile and laughter- so many happy happy memories.

Love and miss you Mom- I always will.

Hi Mom, it’s 12yrs today, and it’s been a while since I wrote on this site. I just want to say how much I’m missing you, I will visit you today and probably take Ash with me.
I won’t mention what’s happening with me, because you already know, I believe you’re watching us all.
Love you forever ❤️❤️❤️

Love and miss you ❤️ I'm 30 now nan and I still think about you everyday. I wish we would of had more than almost 12 years when you was well. I traveled on my own for the first time on the bus to see you on December 19th 2003, if I would of known that was the last time I'd ever see you walk and talk I would of cherished it. Christmas is always hard for me because of you becoming really sick during that time. I honestly wonder what would you of thought of me as a man or how my life would be. You was the only grandparent I loved as I never knew my dad or his family and I never knew grandad very well and had no connection with him.

I just feel so sad that we never got much time together at all. To have such a massive stroke at 64 and to die at 71 no age at all. The only grandparent I knew was taken away from me when I was so young. I just don't have many happy memories of you Nan because I was still so young. I mainly remember you being sick.

I love you so much, I'm still heartbroken by how cruel life can be.

I can't believe it's 10 years ago today. I'm worried as the years go by, my memories of you will fade. Life isn't fair. 11 years old I was, when you became sick with a stroke. The only grandparent I ever loved and knew. I am about to become a Dad again, and this time to a little girl. I've already decided to give my little girl your name, as her middle name. You was full of laughter, and could light up a room. It's just a shame, an awful shame that I only had you for 11 years. And the nearly 8 years after you wasn't well. I was only 19 when you passed away in the hospital bed. I'm 29 now, and it is still painful knowing that I'll never see you again. And that you'll never meet my kids.

I've thought about you everyday since the day you've became ill. The day you died and until I die.

Love you forevermore

Hi Mom, its been a while and I'm sorry I've not been in touch. The world is a different place at the moment. Pandemic, sickness and isolation for many of us. Today's a significant one for us. We lost a battle we couldn't really fight and I'm so so sorry. We are still strong and healthy and I know you would say that's the main thing.....Love you Mom Xxx

Hi Nan. Jevon again, been thinking about you more and more lately. I am so scared the older I get , the less I will remember about you. As I was so young when you was taken ill.

I remember the last time I saw you walk and talk was December 19th 2003. I had travelled for the first time on my own to see you. And how proud you was of me. And if I had any idea that would be the last day I would ever see you, walk and talk and well again. I would of cherished it. Life has truly never been the same. My childhood became terrible when you was sick.

Even at 28 I still feel so so sad about it all. I'm starting to get jealous at anyone who still have their grandparents. Or who even had their grandparents longer than I did. I feel like a dark cloud has hung over the Templeton family for years. We are an unlucky unlucky family.

I get so sad more about the life, we should of had. The life where you were around and got to live until you was old. 64 to have a massive stroke. And 71 years old is such a young age to die. It's really not fair.

I love you forever and always Nan ❤️ I'm so sorry that we couldn't have had longer together.

Miss you Nan. I think about you all the time. It just doesn't seem fair that the only grandparent I ever knew and spent time with, I only had for not even 12 years. While other people I know my age who are almost 30 still have their grandparents. I feel like I was robbed. And you was robbed.

Seeing you sick and not being able to talk and walk really affected me. I wish you was here. ❤️
Love you

Hi Nan, Jevon here. It's been a long time since I saw you talk and walk. I wasn't 12 yet. Wish things could of been different and you could of watched me grow up. I have two sons now who would of loved you and I know you would of loved them. I think about you everyday and will do so until we meet again. Jevon ❤️

Happy 80th Birthday Mom. It seems like yesterday that we were all together under your protective loving wing. Your children are older adults now, 4 out of 5 of us in our 50's. Children and grandchildren of our own. I know you would be proud of our achievements and love the new additions to our family. Always in our hearts and still so missed - continue to rest in peace Mom and enjoy your birthday with your own parents, siblings and loved ones we know you all watch over us.

Its my 55th birthday today Mom, thinking about you more and more, how much I miss you, how we would have celebrated today, how much you would have enjoyed my grandsons, Lorenzo and Leonardo and how much they would have loved you. It does not get easier as I grow older and the length of time that I haven't had you around get longer, I miss you as much now as I did the day we lost you. I want to believe that you are watching over us, I need to believe that. Love you Mom, always will.......

14 years ago, the stroke altered your life so drastically Mom. You were so brave and never let us see how hard it was for you. Although sometimes I could see sadness in your once beautiful sparkling eyes.
You are my inspiration. 
Rest in eternal peace Mom, you are still so loved and missed....xxx
