The following birthday memoriam was also published this week:
Raymond John COOKE
27th June To a Special Husband Ray on his Birthday, The day you left and gained your wings, It broke my heart in two, I wish you could have stayed with me, But heaven needed you. You left me with many memories, And I love you dearly still, No matter how much time goes by, You know I always will. You were a very special person, With kindness in your heart, And the love we had together, Grows stronger now we’re apart. I will think of you with love today But that is nothing new, I thought about you yesterday, And days before that too. I think of you in silence, And often speak your name, All I have are our memories, And your picture in a frame. Your memory is my keepsake, With which I’ll never part, God has you in his keeping, I have you in my heart. Happy Heavenly Birthday Ray Love & Miss You Everyday Always in my thought forever in my heart Your Everloving Wife Pat xxx Dad Today it is your Birthday Dad, A day that we find hard, You never wanted any fuss, But always loved your card. We love you so much dad, What more is there to say, We hope all the Angels sing for you, On this your special day. While your up in heaven, A star so bright and proud, We’re missing you on your birthday, And throwing kisses to the clouds. So when our days are darkest, And we just can’t see the light, We’ll look up at the brightest star, And you’ll be shining bright. Missed Everyday and loved so much Happy Heavenly Birthday Dad Forever in our hearts All our love Donna & Ian, Steven, Scott and Ellie xxx
