Another year gone by Shuggie and the world is no better than when you left it. You would be disgusted by the way thing have been dealt with lately as my mum and dad would to.

Anyway I hope where you all are is a better place than here. Im sure you are all celebrating in style for your birthday.

Please say hi to my mum and dad for me and also to Cathie your wife. Miss you all as much as the 1st day you left us.

Will see you all on the other side soon enough. Take care and luv to all.

The years have passed but your memory will not be forgotten. You are still a huge loss to all you're family.
You could light up a room with you're personality. You could hold an audience in the palm of you're hand.
Love & miss you always.

Happy Heavenly Birthday Shug! Hard to believe that you would have been 82 today! Recent events suggest to me that you are forever young & very happy & whole where you are. I can just imagine you singing Gamblin' Man & surrounded by loved ones, including our wee MacDuff, who you were always calling to say you were coming to

As usual I'm late Shuggy but as they say better late than never.

Hope you had a lovely heavenly 80th birthday I'm sure my mum & dad Bertha & Dave would have made sure you did. 

You were like my 2nd Dad and I loved you to bits Shuggy.  I remember when Suzy and I would try and sneak in from school,so you couldnt shout us in to the living room because you always wanted to know what we had been up to that day. I never could visit without sitting having my chat with Shuggy.............. secretly i actually loved it as much as you did.

Any way happy 80th Shuggy please say hi to mum and dad for me .

Luv ya lots

Like the dad I never had, I remember him threatening to ask my mum for her social money because I was round so often! I remember the caravan holidays, fishing n picking whelks!! I remember the songs and the the good times. Wishing you a happy heavenly 80th birthday. Say hi to Cathy and my mum if you see her. Love you all xxxxxx

Not a day goes by I didn't wish I was a little older before you passed and that i had the time to grow up with my grandparents around me. Not a day goes by where I don't think what we have missed out on and how much I just wish things had been different. Not a day goes by I don't wish my wee dad still had his wee dad around to share life with.
Although I haven't any stories or memories of you, I know that I love you with all my heart and forever will.
Love you Grandad Shug

Dad, 30 yrs ago today, you told me........"1 more minute and that poof gets it" the poof in question was none other than gay icon & musician Boy George! I had played karma camelion on loop 10 times! Dare i play it for the 11th? sadly one does! He challenged me, and i took it. 1 min into to song...he papped a beef & tomato pot noodle up my bedroom wall over the BG! The LP? 4 mins in microwave=Ashtray! It was his 50th.sorry Dad, Threw a strop, didn't go! He was going to Elinda & David's. Incidentally Steven, Gordon & Elinda chipped in for that microwave & I got my name on the tag for heehaw! Result! Suzy 2 - Shug 1.

Loved and lost. You could light up a room with one gumsy smile. Your personality at times was bigger than you were. An entertainer without a doubt. You left a massive whole in all our lives. It took a long time for the pain to go and a lifetime still to miss you.
Happy what should have been your 80 th birthday.
Love you forever.

Happy 80th Birthday to the worlds best Granda.. Miss you & Granny very much but know you's are looking down on me & my kiddies. Tell them stories all the time - ranging from necking cold hot chocolate cuz I didnt like the one's you made (sorry!) to sitting on your knee asking for one more bedtime story of the mischievous shenanigans that my daddy & Uncle Gordon got up to when they were little boys. Forever missed - love always, Gillian xxx

Think of you often & remember your many late night phone calls saying that you were coming o'er to Canada to break in our hoose to steal our wee dug! You gave us many laughs Shug & made many friends when you did visit Canada. Always missed & often in our thoughts...and we wonder if you have wee MacDuff with you now. Xx
