Such a sad day today for everyone who loved you. I can't believe its a whole year and still haven't come to terms with you not being here with us. You must be so proud of Danielle and Andrew and their achievements through this year at college and school. We will always keep you in our thoughts - your candlelight will always shine. All our love. Tricia, Ashleigh and Jessica x
Merry Christmas, Dee! You are always in our thoughts, especially so at this poignant time, our first Christmas without you. We will never forget your love of Christmas and the joy, love and hospitality that you showed to everyone who visited you and your lovely family. All of our love, now and forever. From your little brother and his wife! Gary and Sandra xxxx
In lieu of a birthday card to my niece, Amira, we have made a donation in memory of my wonderful and much-missed sister, Desiree. Happy Birthday Amira! Love from Gary, Sandra, Gran, Dawnand StuartRaised for the event: Amira doesn't want any cards this year (unless her mum has made them - obviously!)
To Desiree, the light of my life. I light this candle for you and to celebrate the 11th birthday of your son, Andrew on 16th October 2008. We'll make sure that we celebrate his birthday in style, as you always did. You will be in my thoughts and prayers always. Everlasting love, Mam xxxxxxxxxxx
This donation was raised by the congregation who attended Desiree's uplifting funeral service at South Shields Crematorium on Friday 10th October. Many thanks to the family, friends and colleagues who kindly contributed this money in lieu of flowers in order to help in the fight against IPF.
