They say remember someone in the blowing of the wind, the shining of the moon and the stars, and the tide as it ebbs and flows - and that is so true - for wherever I go I take you with me and think of you.  Our pond here still has lots of little newts and these in particular remind me of the stories you used to tell us when we were little of Boldon and the brooks where you used to be as a young kid. The bees remind me of you.  So, everything, everything reminds me of you. Thinking of you especially today when you had to leave us in 1975. I am proud to say you were my dad; forever I will miss you, and forever I will hold you closely in my heart. x Love you my dear dad. xxxx

My dear wonderful precious Dad xx you were such a wonderful Dad. I’ve just read the tribute left by our Marg. Precious memories brought vividly to life by Margaret’s beautiful words. You can tell how much she loves you.
We do love you, so very much. I’m imagining you and Mam being in a beautiful place of happiness this Christmas Eve xx always thinking of you both xx ♥️♥️

My dear dad, hope you and mam are sitting together warm and cosy on this Christmas Eve.  I have happy memories dad of you going downstairs to light the fire - and for us to check if Santa had eaten that Christmas pie...there were always just crumbs left on the plate.  The memories are always here of you singing with us Christmas Carols beside the lights glowing from the Christmas tree.  Oh they are such happy memories that I will cherish forever.

I miss you and think of you every day.  John would have loved you dearly and our Andrew too. x such a precious dad xxx

Love you dearly dad, I close my eyes and imagine giving you the biggest hug.  The salvation army are playing on the C.D. we have right now - and the sounds of those carols fill me with such emotion.

LOVE YOU DEAR DEAR DAD XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

Hi ya my dad, thinking of you always am xxxx they are putting new steps at Marsden, which brings to mind the times when you used to take our Aud and me to the beach - what a big sea! we used to run down those steps and wait and you used to hold our hands down the rest of the steep steps onto the beach.  I am sure you are still holding our hands - in fact I know for sure you are - as you are there in our thoughts no matter what we do, or where we are. Love you dearest dad forever.  Love you xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Dad, today me and John stood and watched men drilling down for water testing at Whitburn Colliery.  I felt as though you were there with us. Especially when the man mentioned the coal seams.  I think you were very brave going down the mine - as they were telling us how deep they were drilling. The sea water is seeping through and meeting fresh water. Yes I am very proud of you my dad xxxxxxxx LOVE YOU FOREVER XXXXX

THE LOVE OF ANIMALS AND ALL WILD LIFE

Shared by MARGARET ELSY on June 23, 2021
We owe you, dear dad, for us loving animals as we do.

The newts in the pond remind me of you every day - and how I wish you were here right now to walk in the garden.  But, then, I am sure you are with me everywhere I go.  The garden is full of bees and lots of birds - thank you for showing us the love of all of these.

I hope you are looking after our mam who will be with you now forever.

We learned to sing with you, and you used to tell us stories for Brer Rabbit - how I wish we could sing with you now.

Love you forever. xxx
