March 2002 was one of the holidays that I and Gary enjoyed tremendously. I had read a lot about Egypt when I was a child. My father would read library books on Egypt and I too read them. I was fascinated reading about Egypt. When we went to Egypt we stayed in a Movenpick apartment. We booked places to sightsee. Hatshepsut Temple, Luxor Temple, Aswan Dam, The pyramids, A cruise up the nile, but my favorite was visiting the valley of the kings and queens. 'The jewel in the crown as they say' was visiting the tomb of Tutankhamum, it was amazing to actually see this tomb in person after having read about this pharaoh as a child. Gary and I had many holidays over the years, all where special because Gary was with me and I cherish all these holiday memories.

Following the 8th March 2018. I re-arranged the date of Gary's ashes to be interred. On 11th April. I asked that as Gary had passed away in 2016 , and I had his ashes at home. I asked that could it be that Gary's family members and those who were part of our life together would attend this internet. Tricia Gary's Loving partner x

After not being able to lay Gary's ashes to rest on 8th March 2018, I returned home from Bent cemetery with Gary's ashes to plan another date. A little 'hiccup' as they say in my plans. However I knew I would eventually be able to lay Gary to rest.

2018 was the year It was time to lay Gary's ashes to rest in Bent cemetery. I bought a full plot at the end of January 2018. The date was organised for 8th March 2018, 2pm. However it was not to be, as Robert Burns in a poem stated ' The best laid plans oh mice and men'

The Point to Point horse racing day held every March was a day in our calendar that we always looked forward to. It was a full day out with all our friends. If the weather was good it made it especially more enjoyable. Crowds of people would attend this event every year. There was always plenty of food and drink of all sorts. My friend Jean Always laid out a good spread of food . However most of all it was great spending a day with all our friends and meeting new friends. When the horse racing was finished at 4pm we would all go to the the inn in Crossford and spend a couple of hours before going home. Even though Gary passed away in 2016 I am always invited to the Point to Point, I enjoy the day as I meet up with old friends who also knew Gary. Alas the last tow Point to Point meetings have not taken place due to the Covid situation However I look forward to attending the next one when the Covid situation has resolved. It will be 5 years ago this September Gary passed, it is nice to know Gary and I's friends have remained my friends. I know Gary would be happy with that Knowledge.

The shops are full of mothers day cards. Gary was always good at sending me loving valentine cards, birthday cards, Christmas cards, however he always left it up to me to pick and send my mother and his a mother a mothers day card. I always chose them and signed them from both of us. Both our mothers passed away the same year. Every time I see mothers day cards in the shop it brings back happy memories of my mother and Gary's mother, especially the times they came for dinner on a Sunday. They always got on very well and enjoyed a chat with each other. I treasure these happy memories.

Yesterday, I visited Gary's grave. It was a lovely day, sun shinning it made you feel like spring was just around the corner. I tided up Gary's grave as I always do and placed a lovely bunch of pink fresh carnations. I had my usual chat with him letting him know how things are. That I was getting on O.K in his absence, and not to worry about me. I am sure/feel he is looking down on me from above. I take comfort in visiting his grave and showing my respects to such a loving partner that I miss. As usual whilst I was there I popped around to his parents grave as a mark of respect for his mother who I knew and got on well with when Gary was alive. I feel as a matter of respect to his parents it's nice to place a couple of flowers on their grave when I am visiting Gary. I find when you visit a loved ones grave you frequently notice the same people visiting their loved ones as well. Its nice to see other people visiting loved ones graves.

February has almost finished. Hard to believe that it was almost one year ago that the Covid problem in our country came to light. I feel lucky, as a front line worker I have been able to continue working full time and have remained healthy to continue my work as a nurse. Next Tuesday is my grandsons 20th birthday. 'My how time flies'. I remember when I was 20, did not seem that long ago. (Funny think I am Beginning to sound like my mother). My grandson was only a baby when I met Gary. Joshua grew up knowing Gary. Gary was very fond of my grandsons. Both my grandson's loved staying with us when they could, because they knew they would be spoiled. Joshua loved receiving presents on his birthday from both of us. I always remember Gary would carry on with Joshua and jokingly call him 'a bad stick' Joshua remembers this with fondness. I am glad both my grandsons have many happy memories of Gary.
