Only here for 3 days but loved forever

From Mum

Dedicated to Sara Davey

To my beloved, beautiful, courageous and wonderful wife Sara. You brought so much light into my life from that day we first met in the spring of 2006, getting engaged a year later, our wonderful so happy wedding day in Devon on 23 August 2008. You meant oh so much to me. You would light up the room with your love for life and laughter too. I was oh so lucky to have found you when I did and to be able to share our lives together. You will never be forgotten by me and everyone who was so lucky to have met you and be your friend too.

Dedicated to Joan Owen

“Mum, together with Dad and the rest of the family, you loved and supported me through my heart problems in the 1970s and 2004 and my more recent psychological struggles. I’ll be forever grateful.
We all miss you so much but we know that you are everything, you are everywhere and you are evermore.
“You are the quack of a duck
You are the wind in the trees
You are the lessons in a book
You are the sweetness of peas
You are the bird flying high
You are a flake in the snow
You are the star shooting by
You are everywhere I go.
You are the green of the grass
You are the love of a dog
You are the chatter in the class
You are the warmth of a log
You are the lap of the wave
You are the ebb and the flow
You are the lives that we save
You are everything I know
You are the cheese on the toast
You are the light of the day
You are the potato of my roast
You are never going away
You are the tick and the tock
You are the welcome at the door
You are the hands on the clock
You are the love, evermore
You are everything, you are everywhere, you are evermore.” ~ Mike Owen
