Thank you for the memories your loving family

Goodbye my love, until we meet again your loving wife.

Dad Pa Matches
It’s not what we write
It’s not what we say
It’s how we remember you
In our own special way
Your loving family
Darren and Chelle
Kristy ,Chris , Mikaela , Danielle
And ( Black Jack ) xxxx

It’s been a privilege being your daughter and son-in-law.
Jodie and Sleepy – Love you.

I liked a little gamble,
A bet I loved to place,
A rush of the adrenaline,
I loved to watch the race.

I studied all the form,
Running heavy on the course,
Sometimes picking colours,
An eye on my favourite horse.

For me it wasn’t gambling,
It was a treasured way of life,
It took my mind so far away
From trouble and from strife.

So now it’s time for resting,
I’ve passed the winners line
Think of me, a winning ticket
And how I loved this life of mine.

Rest In Peace Pa
Forever missed xoxo
Love Holly, Phil, Hadley, Everly & Zadie

Pa, Even tho you are gone from this life I have no doubt wherever you are that your at peace and one day our paths will cross again untill then I love you and will always cherish the memories that will never leave, Love always Mighty Mouse.
