“In loving memory of my wife, partner, and soul mate, Mon., 29/04/02.
I sat and watched an angel grow, as I vanished from her sight.
I sat and watched her grow and glow, in the silence of the night.
And with the Lord’s eternal grace, hand in hand we’ll take our place.
I loved her then, I love her now. Together to the Lord we’ll bow.”
She will be missed by all whose hearts she touched, family, extended family, friends and clients.
