Uncle derek
What a wonderful man you were. Thank you for some of the fondest memories growing up and taking me in for the short time you did and treating me like one of your own. You and aunty Gill are in most of my memories growing up. You kept my feet on the ground. One of my memories were the multicoloured shopping bags you used to put your shopping in and taking candy for a walk over the fields. When I used to come from school was hang your coat up not on the floor on the stand in the hallway. When I close my eyes I can still see you aunty Gill. Karen, Paul and robert and me in the house in saxonfields. Xxxxx lots of love sent and thank you for being an. Inspiration and role model xx R. I. P sleep tight love kerry xxxx
