I know that no matter what
You will always be with us.
When life separates us
I'll know it is only your soul
Saying goodbye to your body
But your spirit will be with us always

Dear Jim, Today would have been our 54th wedding anniversary. It is difficult to believe that it is almost 4 years since you left us. You would be happy,I am sure, that Harry has been in touch after so many years. We have been catching up on the last 50+ years. Reminiscing on years spent in Derby including visits to jazz clubs both in Derby and Nottingham. Of course the "Bell" has also been mentioned!! He is married with three sons and is still in Australia. Paul visited 2 weeks ago and Louise + Kevin were here for 3 weeks during July. Alex and Kevin are now working so couldn"t accompany her. I am still in Florida. Much love Maureen

Dear Dad, I miss you today on your birthday. I think all of us do. Louise dropped by your memorial and put flowers on today. We miss your wisdom and kindness. By the way I got engaged to Elsa in July so I know you’d have been happy about that. Happy Birthday and we miss you. Love, Paul

Another year has gone past with out us being able to talk to you and see you! The boys are growing into young men. Thomas is working now, he got to work with animals, maybe not alligators, but dogs. Alex is working to support himself so he can have his own media business. Maybe the next hollywood director! Kevin has a few years to go but would love to be a cook. It is sad that you aren’t here to see them growing up, but guessing your keeping an eye on us all from Heaven! Today I planted some flowers for you on your grave. Happy birthday and we miss you.

Dear Jim, Thinking of you today on your Birthday. We all still miss you a lot and I am still here in Florida. Louise and Kevin have just been for their annual visit. It was a nice surprise that Harry posted a tribute on this site after us losing contact for over 50 years. Love forever ,Maureen

I have just stumbled across this web page and would like to tell Maureen how much I enjoyed my friendship with her and Jim, when I lived in Derby before moving to Australia. Jim was a lovely man and I was honoured to attend their wedding! I last saw Jim and Maureen in 1967 when they lived in Belper on a visit to UK and they kindly offered me a night's accommodation. I hope I can contact Maureen to update our lives. Warm Regards from Harry Morgan.

I miss you grandad, every day. You taught me so much that I'll never forget. In some ways I still think of you as alive back in Florida with grandma, and everytime I do it hurts to think that you are not. You were one of the greatest role models and men in my life, and I will never forget you. Happy 81st birthday to the best grandad a grandson could ever hope for!

I write this tribute You Jim but like to add all our family now gone. To Tommy, Lily ,Dermot, Joan. Paddy, and Billy. All gone but not forgotten. I miss you all. God bless every one of you.

Dear Dad, I can't believe you are gone. I didn't even get to see you again and because of the cancer treatment I haven't even got to talk to you properly for along time. I miss you so much. You have always been my rock, my voice of reason, the one who has helped me through this life. I don't know how I am going to do it without you to guide me. You where so close, you would have been here the next day and with us for Christmas. We where so happy when Mum and you where coming to spend Christmas with us. It made our year. Then this happens. It is so unfair. You made it through the cancer and where getting better, this was supposed to be your time to live life again. I am really struggling to except that you are gone, I feel like you are still here watching over me. It is hard to mourn when I need to be strong for the kids. I never got to tell you how much I loved and appreciated you, I hope you knew. Love Louise & the boys xxxx

I cannot say, and I will not say That he is dead. He is just away. With a cheery smile, and a wave of the hand, He has wandered into an unknown land ... Think of him still as the same. I say, He is not dead—he is just away.” ― James Whitcomb Riley
Posted by Paul Cullen on 31st December 2014
Dad, I miss you so much already and wish I could see you just one more time if only to see your smile, to feel your calm and to tell you I love you. I say however that you are not gone, that you inhabit a place forever in my soul and the souls of those who knew and loved you. Your son always, Paul
