  1. The first man I ever loved is missing
    His voice, I loved, is still
    His place inside my heart no one can ever fill
    Dad, you shaped me into the person I am today
    And no matter where my life takes me
    I know you will be there still
    Loved forever dad, reunited with mum

  10. Terry, Cherie and Families,

    My sincere condolences on the death of your father and grandfather. I am thinking of you all and remembering the time spent at your home when we were at primary school. Distant but good memories. Sadly it feels like we are rapidly losing a generation. I hope today you find comfort in being able to celebrate Snow’s life with many family and friends.
