In Loving Memory


Today is the funeral of my aunt, who passed away on 9th January. Sadly, as we feared, my uncle struggled to go on without her and was  reunited with her on Saturday evening. Unfortunately I can't be at my aunt's funeral today but my thoughts are very much with my family, particularly my cousins who have now lost both their parents in such a short space of time.

RIP Auntie J and Uncle K. We remember you both with much love and fondness. And to my cousins, A and N, we send all our love and sympathy. Our thoughts and prayers are with you x

That is very sad, Mel. I'm so sorry to hear you lost your aunt and uncle so close together. My heart goes out to your cousins - a dreadful loss for them.
It's been 2 years since we lost my lovely auntie too. I still miss her, but it's comforting to know she is now well and happy.
Sorry that you couldn't get to the funeral, but I hope you have many happy memories to comfort you.
