“In loving memory of a special brother and a darling husband.
“Since you passed away life hasn’t been the same.
“The time we spent together meant the world to me, I have many treasured memories as we grew up together happily.
“Your thoughtfulness and the way you care will forever be in our hearts.
“Your wife, Joanna misses you so much and the children believe you are coming back.
“You are truly a wonderful brother, a loving husband and a caring father.
“Our hearts still ache in sadness and secret tears still flow. What it meant to lose you, no one will ever know.
“You will be missed. We love you even in death.
“Keep resting in the bosom of our Lord Jesus….”
