Lee’s aunt June wanted to share a poem that best described her feelings about losing Lee.
For Our Lovely Lee
Always on my mind
Lee sent me an invisible blanket, after he went away!
He said “It’s to wrap around you – anytime night or day.
It’s not made out of fine silk or sheepskin, But of love and memories rare – Of secrets we shared together”
He weaved it with such care!
So whenever I’m feeling lonely and wishing him back with me
I can cuddle up in my blanket of dreams, And know we’re together you see!
No need anymore for those plans and schemes.
I know that in Heaven Lee is fulfilling his dreams !

In memory of Jenifer Margaret Probert.
9th December 1950 – 25th June 2020
Much loved wife, mother, grandmother, friend and nurse.
I knew today my voice would be too weak,
Tears too heavy to stand and speak,
But I could never let the opportunity pass,
To write a few words, although they won’t be my last.
Nan you are going to be dearly missed,
I would do anything for one last kiss
To hear your voice call me “Amy lou”,
I really did think that you would pull through,
I find comfort in knowing your with your parents again.
Along with the complete peace and serenity you have gained.
This is not goodbye,
This is until next time my friend.
Not in this life, but I know in the next,
We will meet again.
Your memory will live on inside me,
Close to my heart you will be,
Photos on the walls for everyone to see,
The good times I will share with joy,
And don’t worry we will all make sure grandads a good boy.
Thank you for everything, and I mean it,
You inspired me, taught me never to quit.
You really was something special.
One of a kind,
Not many nans were your way inclined.
Statement gold jewellery and a trendy top,
Your Pat Bucher earrings made your ear lobes drop,
The scent of your perfume, champagne, was divine,
You always said you were going to leave us at sixty-nine.
So goodnight Nan Jen, my Angel,
I love you.
Until next time my friend.
As written by Amy Lou, Granddaughter.

Love you always x
We little knew that morning, God was going to call your name, In life we loved you dearly, In death we do the same.
It broke our hearts to lose you, You did not go alone.
For part of us went with you, The day God called you home.
You left us beautiful memories, Your love is still our guide, And though we cannot see you, You are always at our side.
Our family chain is broken, and nothing seems the same, But as God calls us one by one, The chain will link again.
21st September 1947- 10th July 2008.
A loving son, brother, father and grandfather, and beloved husband of Carole for 26 years taken from us so suddenly with no chance to say goodbye- in our hearts now and forever.
Farewell My Friends by Rabindranath Tagore
It was beautiful as long as it lasted The journey of my life.
I have no regrets whatsoever Save the pain I’ll leave behind.
Those dear hearts who love and care….
And the strings pulling at the heart and soul…..
The strong arms that held me up When my own strength let me down.
At every turning of my life I came across good friends, Friends who stood by me, Even when the time raced me by.
Farewell, farewell my friends I smile and bid you goodbye.
No, shed no tears for I need them not All I need is your smile.
If you feel sad do think of me For that’s what I’ll like when you live in the hearts Of those you love, remember then You never die.
Patricia Rose Cook
Miss Me but Let Me Go
When I come to the end of the road, And the sun has set for me, I want no rites in a gloom filled room, why cry for a soul set free?
Miss me a little, but not too long, and not with your head bowed low, Remember the love that we once shared, Miss me, but let me go.
For this journey we all must take, and each must go alone, It’s all part of the Master’s plan, A step on the road to home.
When you are lonely and sick at heart, go to the friends we know, and bury your sorrows in doing good things, Miss me, but let me go.
A celebration of the life of Patricia Rose Cook (nee Solly) 12th November 1941 to 12th July 2005.
A loving wife to Bill, a loving mother, grandmother, sister and aunt.
Love always from a family who will never forget.

Age 21 Years
Left this world on 16 November 2005
For our darling Michelle – forever in our hearts.
A butterfly lights beside us like a sunbeam. For a brief moment its glory and beauty belong to our world. But then it flies on again, and though we wish it could have stayed, we feel so lucky just to have seen it.

A dear sister, Forever in our thoughts.
Love Nue, Lyn and Kay
Maureen was a dear wife, mum, nan, sister, aunt and friend. Anyone that knew her will have a special place in their heart for her.
She always had a smile for you and a giving generous nature, taking on everyone’s worries, putting others before herself.
Maureen lived for her grandchildren and gave them enough love in their early years that will stay with them always.
In the eight years I knew Maureen, she was a wonderful mother-in-law and a dear friend to me, I shall miss her terribly.
Bob, Lee, Julie, Jimmy and I will keep her memory alive for our children, Amy, Ellie, Joe, James, Sam and Jordan, all miss their special nanny Maureen.
Katherine Mary Jacobs
1952 – 2005
Katherine sadly died of NF after a short stay in hospital. She contracted the infection after an operation to remove a tumour.
Katherine enjoyed life to the full and was a dedicated wife, fantastic mother, and inspirational teacher.
She was a true professional with an effervescent personality, which won her countless friends both in and out of school. Katherine was happiest when in her classroom, and loved helping children reach their full potential.
Always smiling and cheerful; this is how she will be remembered.

Beautiful thoughts of one so dear, Treasured forever with Love So Sincere.

I just want to post a dedication remembering my wonderful sister Carol Hamilton who died from NF in Glasgow Western Infirmary on 4 December 2000 aged 43. Her little girl was only 6 and is now 16 and such a credit to her. I miss Carol every day of my life and cannot believe 10 years have gone by. She will never be forgotten.
