I often sit and think of you and how you died, to think you could not say goodbye before you closed your eyes, I loved you Derek and I always will, I did in life, in death I do still.
Each morning I start with a broken heart but carry on daily playing my part.
A smile, a brave front,that's what you would want, I do that for you Derek.
You broke my heart and let him die, to take my Husband who did no wrong, forgive me Lord if I ask why.
Love, Wife Christine.
We sat beside your bedside, we talked to you and cried, westroked your hair and kissed you, the tears we could not hide.
We held your hand right to the end, a memory we will keep, so tired you could not fight any more, all you wanted was to sleep.
Goodnight, God bless.
Love, Son Andrew and Nikki.

We sat around your bedside, not knowing what to do, we held your hand and kissed your face and gently talked to you, we told you that we loved you and wanted you to stay but in our hearts we realised, you had to go away.
Miss you Dad.
Love,Son Gary and Alison.

A beautiful memory, dearer than gold, of a Father whose worth can never be told, there's a place in my heart no one can fill, I miss you Dad and always will.
Never be forgotten.
Heartbroken Daughter Diane andBryan.
We look up at the stars each night to find the star most twinkling bright, our Grandad Dek smiles through that star and we smile back to where you are.
Love you Grandad.
From Adam, David, Chelsea, Ryan and Chloe.
