Remembering Our Beloved Ian, his Beautiful song...
God gives every person their own unique song... It;s one that will play their entire life long, through the love that they give and the gifts that they share,Through the memories they make and the dreams that they dare...
It's a song filled with beauty and day-to-day grace, That plays through until they see God face to face.
A song that is heard in the heart, loud and clear - A song, if we listen, we'll always still hear.
We celebrate you, Ian through the sound you lived, the song we'll carry forever of you in out heart.
Rest in Peace, until we meet again, we love you, rest with your Family that has all gone ahead. Love you Dearly, Always.

On Behalf of Nephew Andre to his Uncle Ian.....
My Dearest Uncle Ian RIchards,
We grew up in the sixties like brothers, we played sports and learned from one another, both born in May, he was the 15th, and I the 10th, two years younger 1957. Uncle Ian was always positive and kind in every way, he was hardworking and always ready to help, a true Taurus in every way his character. I am sad for my uncle passing, so soon, but he went on to rejoined with all the people he love in one big family reunion with no more pain and suffering with his Father in Heaven. He will be missed, but never forgotten.
May he RIP.
                His Loving nephew, Andre J. Lucas

Song - Day by day with each passing moment….
Day by day, and with each passing moment, Strength I find to meet my trials here; Trusting in my Father’s wise bestowment, I’ve no cause for worry or for fear. He, whose heart is kind beyond all measure, Gives unto each day what He deems best, Lovingly its part of pain and pleasure, Mingling toil with peace and rest. Every day the Lord Himself is near me,
With a special mercy for each hour; All my cares He fain would bear and cheer me, He whose name is Counsellor and Pow’r. The protection of His child and treasure Is a charge that on Himself He laid; “As thy days, thy strength shall be in measure.“ This the pledge to me He made. Help me then, in every tribulation, So to trust Thy promises, O Lord, That I lose not faith’s sweet consolation, Offered me within Thy holy Word. Help me,
Lord, when toil and trouble meeting, E’er to take, as from a father’s hand, One by one, the days, the moments fleeting, Till with Christ the Lord I stand. Till I reach the Promise Land.
