Wife, husband, mother, father, sister, brother, nanny, grandad, grandma. Best friend.

‘A gardener and plantaholic who loves to draw and paint’ - mum’s chosen description of herself. 

She was so much more to us.

She was loving, kind, considerate, patient, tolerant and nurturing. She was beautiful.

An adventurous spirit that travelled widely, yet was most happy in her own garden or studio.

She was physically and emotionally strong, she held us all together and gave us her strength.

Dad was an old soldier. Not very sociable. Sometimes stubborn and grumpy.

He loved cricket, football, birdwatching, collecting things and having grandchildren. Not necessarily in that order.

We will miss them always. Hopefully re-united now xxx
