I shall be thinking of my Dad who left us on Christmas day 2001, and my Mum who used to love Christmas so much, she died in July 1994 and it seems like yesterday. At my age there are many others both family and friends who have passed on and I shall remember them all with love.

Yes, of course I also miss Daff terribly and Caz too and they will be among those I think of on Christmas day, together with their loved ones. Every time I throw glitter around when card making I think of Daff and of how she loved everything sparkly and loved her lights.

Love and respect to all the ancestors I've discovered in this past year, many of which I didn't know about. You've made me what I am.
Most of all to my Mam, who died June 2008. <3

Remembering my Mum and Dad especially at Christmas, and the memory of their Wedding Anniversary on 29th December, my beloved daughter who never saw a Christmas tree, my friend Lizzie, and all my friends gone ahead, my Dad's cousin Joyce who gave me so much info and anecdotes about my ancestors, my Aunt Elsie who always made Christmas get togethers so special and memorable, and our lovely friends Deanna and Caz and others lost to us from these boards and our lives.

So many people who left a footprint in my life and who will be sadly missed as the Salvation Army bands play and the Carol singers sing. So many names I can no longer write cards to but who I think about as I go through my address books.

To our only child Neil who was born 20/1/75 and who was run over and killed on 1/1/2005.

Missed so very very much everyday. Christmas and New Year are such a sad time for us which are spent in quiet reflection of all those very precious memories.

Must admit I have shed a few tears typing this



OllietheOwl Report 19 Dec 2012 19:16

Also remembering our son who was stillborn on 31/10/1976.



LaGooner Report 19 Dec 2012 20:29

Remembering my darling Dad who died 43 years ago on 15th December, still very much thought of and missed.

Also remembering my Darling mother in law who died on Boxing Day 2004. This lovely lady treated me like her very own daughter and we loved her so very much.
