What a.............

.............send off.......I've never seen anything like that before, so wonderful and personal, i shall miss Tone my father in law very much he was Jamaican as my mother in law re-married and i have know him for 35years he was the kindest man ever, Robbie was devastated as he was Robs Granddad and he was the proudest man when Rob past his driving test. This is what Robbie wrote and read at the service.


Another link is broken

In our family chain

But as god calls us one by one

The chain will fix again

When the nights are starry

When the sky is blue

We will look to heaven

And blow kisses up to you,

You were like the sun Granddad

You brightened up our day

You were always there to help us in every single way,

You’ll be sadly missed by everyone

Your music will be too

You will live on in all of us,

Granddad we love you.
