Let the memory of Janet be with us forever
  • 65 years old
  • Born on July 14, 1944 in London, United Kingdom.
  • Passed away on December 14, 2009 in Luton, Bedfordshire, United Kingdom.

This memorial website was created in the memory of our beloved mum Janet, who was so brave throughout her life and who lives on within our thoughts and hearts each and every day.

Do not stand at my grave and weep, I am not there, I do not sleep. I am a thousand winds that blow, I am the diamond glints on snow, I am the sunlight on the grain, I am the gentle autumn rain. When you awaken in the morning hush, I am the swift uplifting rush, of quiet birds in circled flight, I am the stars that shine at night. Do not stand at my grave and cry, I am not there; I did not die.

Another year since you went away. It never gets any easier mum.

Big changes have happened, Beechwood Road has been sold and Dad has a bungalow up here now.

Roy is living in his own place now

Last Saturday I passed my 1St Dan Black Belt

I miss you I love you - can you see my candle burning for you?

Always in my heart xxx

Oh, what land is the Land of Dreams?
What are its mountains, and what are its streams?
Oh father! I saw my mother there,
Among the lilies by waters fair.

Among the lambs, clothed in white,
She walked with her boy in sweet delight.
I wept for joy, like a dove I mourn;
Oh! when shall I again return?

Miss you mum. X

Happy Birthday Mummy xx

My tears are like the quiet drift
Of petals from some magic rose;
And all my grief flows from the rift
Of unremembered skies and snows.

I think, that if I touched the earth,
It would crumble;
It is so sad and beautiful,
So tremulously like a dream.

Hey Mum, thinking of you today...
Posted by Jacqueline Beresford on December 14, 2015
Hey Mum

Another year since you have gone
I know you just could not hang on
Life goes on, as you know
It's not the same, since you had to go
So I light my candle and it burns bright
Lightning up the crisp, cold night
I hope you see it, from where you are
So you know how loved and missed you are.

I am looking forward to Christmas this year. We are going to see the grandchildren, all having Christmas day at Pat's. First time for many, many years that Christmas dinner has been cooked for me. Never did understand how you did it all in a microwave!! Barry is well, putting on a little weight at last.  Love you and miss you, always will xxx

Hey mum,

Finlo saw your pictures for the first time today, I was looking at them on this site; it was as if he knew you all along, his face lit up and with a great big smile he said "Nana - nana, look daddy, nana!" I was a little lost for words or explaination, but should I be?

6 years mum, seems like yesterday.

Oh, Finlo wants to say something:

B ,lbb b. Nbhlppl

Posted by Brenda Futers on July 14, 2015
Well my lovely, things look better. I feel Debbie with me all the time. It's a slow journey but Barry is healing, Jackie and Nina are coping somehow, stay with us darling we're still hurting. They say laughter is a good healer, did you see the family BBQ? it was so good to have such a happy 'gathering', this time next year we will all celebrate your birthday in Skegness! Happy birthday, try to behave, I love and miss you xxxx
Posted by Jacqueline Beresford on July 14, 2015
Happy Birthday mum, it's been a hard few weeks for me and I've spoken to you lots. I'm sure you can hear me. I hope you're having a lovely day up in Heaven today... always in my thoughts mum, love you and miss you xxxx
Posted by Andy Smith on July 14, 2015
Hello Mum,

Another year has passed and so much has changed
But then, you already know that.

We miss your smile and laugh, your passion and when you are on the war path,
But then this all lives on in each of us four and your beautiful grandchildren

Love you Mum, sleep well

Posted by Jeff Redhouse on July 14, 2015
Happy Birthday mum. Finlo says hello... You'd love him so much mum, so much. I wish he could have known you. He's my joy, my life. Xx
Posted by Brenda Futers on December 14, 2014
Oh Jan....5 years and we need you more than ever...so you'll know that Barry is fighting cancer for all he's worth - the next 2 years are critical. Did you see that I had a fall - what an idiot, first member of the family to impale a limb?! We need angels Jan, send us angels - we need protecting! Jackie and I told you before that we'll always need you. Now more than ever, love you, miss you,  xxx
Posted by Jacqueline Beresford on December 14, 2014
Oh Mum, 5yrs passed since you left.
The Angels saw you struggling and they knew
There was no more hope left for you
So they wrapped you up in their love
And took you to a place above
Full of peace, calm and love,

Miss you, love you, send us Angels mum, we all need you now, I'm so poorly, Uncle Barry is fighting Cancer, Auntie Jackie needs healing love... Xxxxxx
Posted by Andy Smith on July 15, 2014
You were in my thoughts yesterday, Ewan was having a great time and I knew you were watching him, as often you watch us all. So you know how alive and energetic he is, how questioning and inquisitive his mind is. I know this because that is how I remember you. Love you Mum. X
Posted by Jacqueline Beresford on July 15, 2014
My precious Mum, I hope so much you had a lovely day yesterday for your 70th Birthday. I remember you love to dance and I hope you danced all day and all night with freedom and joy...I miss you, I miss so much it really hurts, I thought of you all day long. Look after our loved ones who are there with you, I bet you all had a super day.... I love you Mum xxxx
Posted by Jacqueline Beresford on July 15, 2014
I think of you; I shed a tear,
I wish that I could build some stairs,
To take me up to where you are,
To see you near; not from afar,
You smile and wipe my tears away,
Gently whispering 'it's ok'
Telling me 'go on your way, until we meet again, one day.'
Posted by Jeff Redhouse on July 14, 2014
Mum, happy birthday. 70 today... But that means nothing where you are now. Love always from the three of us. We miss you mum xxx
Posted by Brenda Futers on July 14, 2014
Missing you sweetheart. Have fun today, jump from cloud to cloud, race around like an idiot, play hide and seek with our loved ones. Be totally free and laugh enough for us to feel your joy. love you forever xxx
Posted by Brenda Futers on February 27, 2014
...oh Jan, I'm hurting, I'm having a very bad day, I miss you, I miss Mum, I hurt for all the pain Jackie is dealing with. And now we have one of those heartbreaking 'anniversaries' It's been two years since I asked you to take care of Deb, I'll go to her on Saturday, take some flowers, talk to her, I need to be there, it's such a gentle and peaceful place.
Times like this make me so sad, so empty...... xxxx
Posted by Jeff Redhouse on December 15, 2013
Rest in peace mum, your little grandson is so beautiful you'd be so happy xx
Posted by Jacqueline Beresford on December 15, 2013
Dear Mum, time has flown so fast since you left, not a day goes by when I don't think of you and miss you. Love you xxx
Posted by Brenda Futers on December 14, 2013
My lovely sis, we were recently threatened with severe flooding and the ferocious sea actually had the cheek to thrash and thunder over your rock. The sea was higher and mightier than1953 but it didn't break through. I laughed at myself when I imagined you standing at the top daring it to come any further.
I'll be on the rock today, we can chat about old times,  love you xxx

My darling sis, I wish I could call you and sing Happy Birthday, but with my voice that would be cruel!!! Better than that, I wish you could see your kids, you would be so proud. AND, it's perfect BBQ weather and the British Grand Prix is over. I so, so wish you were here, wish we could cuddle one more time.  sisters together........ I love you.

I just wanted to say your memorial is touching. I pray God will continue to strengthen you. I hope, you can also take comfort in Revelation 21:4: "[God] will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more…the former things have passed away.""

And so again the seasons come and go
but yet as aways there is one thing I know,
you may no longer be with us here,
but your memory will always keep you near.

Miss you Mum xxx
Posted by Brenda Futers on December 14, 2012
Throughout the years I've thought of you, and once in a while I cry.
For although you're gone, it was much to soon for us to say goodbye.
Some day we'll meet again when we shall smile and reminisce and Heaven will fill with the laughter of me and my big Sis. Love and miss you. xxx
Posted by Jacqueline Beresford on December 14, 2012
Dear Mum, How can it be 3yrs since we had to let you go? The time has flown but for me the sorrow remains. I wipe my tears and I remember your smile, your loving hugs and cuddles, your sense of humour and your determination never to give in. I think of you all the time you are in my heart and always will be. I love you xxxx
Posted by Brenda Futers on July 14, 2012
..so..I was thinking back to Norbury Grove, we 3 girls were in the street play, 3 beautiful princesses celebrating our new Queen's Coronation - and now it's the diamond jubilee!!!  I mean, surely it can't be 60 years ago - can it? Be peaceful sweetheart and remember "sisters together, never apart.... love you  xxxx
Posted by Michael Smith on July 14, 2012
I don't suppose you have birthdays any more - but I haven't forgotten what day it is. Too wet for Barbecues right now - and in any case the British Grand Prix was last week ;>). Later, I'll find a way to celebrate our life together ...... Oh! and Just in case - Happy Birthday

I'm overcome today, I don't know why, it just happens. I'm missing Debs dreadfully, hold on to her for me darling, just help her through. Guide her and love her, just as you would if you were here. I never wanted to lose you but I am not so frightened knowing you are there for Debs. God really does move in mysterious ways. I love you xxxx

Love you mum xxx,

I just thought I'd drop by and say hi and realised the music playing is Beethoven Moonlight Sonata - I don't usually have the sound turned up. I was going to make a comment about how it should be the Muppet Show theme tune, but I didn't think that was appropriate; although I just have lol... I'm Missing you loads mum, wish you were here but you're somewhere better, you lucky thing! x x x
Posted by Brenda Futers on December 23, 2011
...so here we are my lovely girl, Christmas again. Shopping finished, presents wrapped, just waiting for tomorrow when Deb and Pat arrive. I'll relax tonight, feet up and a glass or two of gin and tonic - I just know you'll approve!  love you xxx
Posted by Jacqueline Beresford on December 23, 2011
Oh mum as I wipe the tears away reading your recent tributes, I think of you, of how much I love you and how much I miss you. I wish I could have five more mins to hear your voice to hear you laugh to see your smile, all I have are memories and photogrtphs - I don't want those, I want you. Love you mum so much xxxxxxx
Posted by Nina Tidy on December 14, 2011
Thinking of you today, but its not the only day, I just thought I would tell you this time. I miss your laugh and giggles. It was contagious! I know you watch over everyone to see what they are up to. I try to keep a picture of you in my mind of your birthday, when you looked lovely in your red top and white trousers and were over the moon with your birthday cake.
Posted by Brenda Futers on December 14, 2011
When you proclaimed "this is Jan's rock" you couldn't have known the peace it would bring. When I sit there I am with you, I feel you close to me, you are in my heart. I have Jackie and she has me, we miss you, we always will. Look after us Jan, we still need you..."Sisters forever, never apart, maybe in distance, never at heart. xxxx
