Well Mum, what do I say, where do I start? How do I begin to tell you how much I love you? You were my Mum and you were always there for me, sticking plasters on my knee, teaching me about the the world and showing me right from wrong. You taught me to always say please and thank you, showed care and and so much love when things went wrong, wiped my tears when I cried and told me that things always have a way of working themselves out. I was so lucky to have you as my Mum, but then again, you were lucky to have me as your daughter.... ! You nearly left me twice....once outside the paper shop when I was being a baby brat and bawled and bawled and you almost walked all the way home without me!! Then when I had my foot operation you and Dad took me to Asda and made me do my shopping in a wheelchair!! Oh the embarrassment when you forgot me and left me down the freezer aisle! When Dad, Paul, Beth and I left hospital after seeing you for the last time we came over the hill and saw a beautiful, vivid rainbow and that's what you are now.... One of God's sunbeams, forever beautiful, kind and loving Xxx Goodnight, Mum, I loved you so so very much, I will always love you and I will take care of Dad until one day we can be together again. Love always and forever, Lisa xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Jen loved birds and loved bees She liked flowers and trees Big bright colours and songs Fond of rainbows and rain And old fashioned steam train Country walks short or long On our many excursions She would shoulder exertions With a smile and a quip Or sarcastic remark As we strolled through the park With her stiff upper lip Never one to complain She could laugh like a drain Or be quiet in thought Be supportive and bright But still ready to fight These things cannot be taught For Jen’s natural skill To be nice, well or ill Gave example to all We were shown her compassion And were taught with no ration To get up when we fall Now the hole that is left Leaves us sad and bereft We won’t see her again But the memories stay In our thoughts every day Of our lovely friend Jen xx

Well Aunty Jen, what a fantastic send off you had today, it was so heartfelt and exactly as you were, u would have been so proud of your beautiful Lisa as she stood and gave a tribute to you. I know you will be watching over us all and also putting the worlds to rights with my Dad who you have missed so much since he left us. RIP Aunty Jen you were one in a million xx
