Memories Are made of This,
Our Memories of you are for life.
A man of purpose,who was not willing to give up the fight.
A Man of strength in times of need, compassion for others troubles.
A man of strong will, not afraid to voice an opinion.
Although you enjoyed the early days, you often pined for your family in England but never let us know.
Rather you ensured that we were safe and cared for us in your way.........family outings, camping, fishing, barbecues, playing in bands and enjoying life.
Christmas, Birthday's, Bonfire nights were never a dull affair
Later in life you were not so active, as a teacher and story teller, you helped to instill in us a sense of caring for others and to ensure that we never gave up in our life's pursuits.
Today is a celebration of your life. It is not the life in the man that survives; rather the lives that the man has helped to survive is important.
Our Cherished memories will sustain us and give us the courage to pass on the lessons you have taught us.
Rest Peacefully
From all Key Kids
Victor Marilyn David and Andrew
