GED WAS MY LIFE FOR 36 YEARS
30 OF THOSE YEARS I HAD THE HONOUR OF BEING HIS WIFE.
HE DIED FROM BEING EXPOSED TO ASBESTOS IN HIS WORK ENVIROMENT, AND TO THIS DAY I FEEL SO ROBBED BY THOSE PEOPLE THAT PUT PROFIT BEFORE LIFE.
OVER 250 PEOPLE ATTENDED HIS FUNERAL AND THAT TO ME SHOWS WHAT SORT OF A PERSON HE WAS.
EVERYBODY HE KNEW HE MADE AN IMPACT ON,
HE LOVED LIFE AND LIVED IT TO THE FULL.
HE WAS THE PROUD FATHER OF HIS 4 DAUGHTER'S JULIE,CAROL.JACKIE.DEBBIE,
THE TOTALLY DEVOTED GRANDAD OF HIS 7 GRANDCHILDREN.
LEE,STEVEN,KARLI,MARK.BEN,CHRISTOPHER,STEPHANIE,
HE IS REMEMBERED WITH SUCH LOVE AND DEVOTION BY US ALL .
AND DAILY WE BATTLE WITH THE PAIN OF HIS LOSS.
WE STAYED WITH HIM TO THE VERY END,
HE REWARDED US WITH SECONDS BEFORE HIS DEATH OPENING HIS EYES AND LOOKING AT EACH OF US IN TURN
I WILL ALWAYS REMEMBER THAT LIGHT THAT SHONE IN HIS EYES JUST BEFORE HE LEFT US .
I BELIEVE WE WILL MEET HIM AGAIN AT THE GATES OF HEAVEN AND THERE THE BROKEN FAMILY CHAIN SHALL LINK ONCE MORE AND OUR TEARS WILL BECOME TEARS OF HAPPINESS
OUR LOSS WAS HEAVENS GAIN.
WE SHARED OUR LIVES IN EVERY WAY
HOW I WISH WITH ALL MY HEART
YOU WERE WITH US STILL TODAY
GED! MY BRAVE HERO, YOU AMAZED EVERYONE WITH YOUR COURAGE
I LOVED EVERY MOMENT WE WERE TOGETHER
I NEVER LEFT YOUR SIDE
YOU WERE MY REASON FOR LIVING
I'D DO ANYTHING TO HAVE YOU BACK
IT WAS YOUR BODY ..NOT YOUR SPIRIT
THAT FINALLY LACKED THE STRENGTH
TO STAY IN LIFE BESIDE ME
WITH YOUR FAMILY SO CONTENT
BUT JUST ONE TEARDROP TOLD ME
YOUR BODY WAS NO LONGER STRONG
THE BATTLE WAS NEARLY OVER
DEAR GOD YOU BATTLED SO LONG
MY GRIEF IS CRYING MY HEART AWAY
OH GED, I WISH HE HAD LET YOU STAY
IF ONLY I COULD HOLD YOU
AND WHISPER WORD'S SO TRUE
THAT LIVING LIFE WITHOUT YOU
IS SO VERY HARD TO DO
WHAT A LIFE TO TAKE
WHAT A BOND TO BREAK
WHAT DO I DO WITH HALF A LIFE
I THANK YOU FOR THE YEARS SPENT AS YOUR WIFE
SO MUCH LOVE WENT WITH YOU
BUT I SEND YOU SO VERY MUCH MORE
I LOVE YOU GED I ALWAYS WILL
ALWAYS REST WITH ANGEL'S LET THE SOFT WINDS BLOW YOUR PAIN AWAY
YOU TOUCHED THE HEART'S OF ALL YOU MET
WE WHO LOVED YOU WONT EVER FORGET
YOUR DEVOTED AND SO LONELY WIFE

 Personal Notes


Since you left us Ged, you have 2 new grandchildren.
Craig, and Elle-Jayne, and another due in a few weeks,you would have been so very proud of them all,
the boys are all so hansome and grown now,
you should never have had to miss out on there lives or they on yours, this is the legacy this killer dust leaves. a family incomplete.

Added by Carole

I just told you how hansome the boys have got, how grown up they are now, well this is about the girls now,
they are so beautiful, they are talented and so pretty, Karli is so beautiful, taller than me now and is more a friend, Stephanie is busy dancing,and is never around,always off doing something,she is mirror image of her mother, Elle, what can i say about her, she talks about you like she knows you well,and she never got to see you,

Im here alone feeling weak.
god took my husband,my life
now my future seems so bleak
Ive had my emotions,too many to tell
Ive laughed and Ive cried
on lookers praise me for my strength
if they only knew,
along with my husband I fell
I search for my beliefs
I struggle for my comfort.
I envy those who still have their husbands
I beg God everyday for some relief
it is what is killing me it is the grief
