Coping with a bereavement has been made that much harder by the incredibly difficult circumstances we are now facing. Families are separated, and many people can't say goodbye to family and friends as they would wish to.
This page is dedicated to their memory, a place to share the messages of love and remembrance that you were unable to say in person.
I can’t believe you have gone and never got to say goodbye. My lovely daughter how I miss you. It was not meant to happen this way you are not meant to bury your children, its the wrong way round. I hope you were not afraid they say you passed in your sleep and you wouldn’t have known. I know you would never want to leave us and we are all so very sad. My heart breaks every day for you Nicola. You were the best daughter, mum, sister, auntie, cousin, niece and friend anyone could ever ask for. xx
Ted was our neighbour, for several years when we lived in Stilton. He became a good and trusted friend and was kind, thoughtful and generous of spirit. He also had a wickedly dry sense of humour and would make us laugh on a daily basis and latterly with his witty letters and cards.
He helped save us from floods, caught our escapee Jack Russell (which he rugby tackled on many occasions) on the cricket pitch. We will miss his visits to us at Christmas for a ‘cuppa and mince pie’. A lovely man!
Happy birthday mum you would have been 90 today wish I could hold you and hug you again even if it was just one more day will buy you a memorial candle once I've finished isolating love you for everxxxxx💕
We have been friends for a long time, it started as work colleagues 22 years ago then became close friends.
All the years since Safeways closed you have been part of my life and have helped my through my ups and downs. I will miss our weekly chats.
Dad, you were the best dad in the world. You meant everything to me. I miss you so much and hope that one day we will meet again in the kingdom of heaven by the will of God. I'm so sorry that you had to suffer so much on earth. This world can be very cruel.
God bless, you and give you everlasting peace, happiness and love.
I was so lucky to have you as a close friend for many years. We shared many happy times together, and you will be sadly missed by a lot of people, both as a friend and in all your voluntary work for the community.
In these strange times it seems unreal that we will not be meeting up again as planned after things return to normal, as we weren’t given time to say goodbye.
God bless and keep you safe
With love and fond memories.
I have had the pleasure to have known Thelma for several years.She was a work colleague and became a good friend. She was a warm hearted,kind,caring and generous lady .I will always have many fond memories of Thelma,I will miss her dearly but will never forget her.

We all loved you dearly & will miss you, we do miss you every day...you was such an inspiration to so many. You could light a room up as soon as you walked in. Was a privilege to have known you, just wish it was for longer.

Dear Dad, I can't believe you've gone. It's hurting me so bad that I wasn't there to hold your hand when you passed. You were there for me during my life every step of the way. I feel so guilty. I love you so much and cared for you so much. You have left a hole in my life which can never be filled. Your face lit up everytime you saw me. You were so interested in anything I had to say. I just hope you were proud of me. I love you so much Dad. Rest in peace. Caroline X x x x x x X
Dad, I cannot believe you have gone, I am broken beyond words and wish I could turn back the clock. Because of Covid19 and lockdown our daily visits stopped and I never thought for one moment my last visit to Stoneleigh would be the last time we spoke to each other as had i known then what would happen on the 3rd May I would have cuddled you longer and told you over and over now much I loved you, not that I didn't tell you that. My dad, my protector, my hero and friend, I will love you forever
Mick: you were one of the nicest kindest friend that we all had the pleasure of knowing. You will always be a part of our lives and we will nevet forget you. Thank you for being a true gent and friend to us all and we will all meet up again one day . Our thoughts are with daisy john peter and lee at this sad tragic time and collectively as a family we send all our love. Rest in peace mick x
You was such a lovely lady, who I had great respect for and got to know really well over 12 years, coming every Tuesday morning to do your housework. You are in my thoughts constantly lots of love Ann xxx
My heartfelt condolences to my cousins, Jo and Dave and family. Across the miles in thought, our strength will be in our shared memories of my beloved aunt. Her zest for nature, birding, Scottish dancing and sciences were our shared interests. When a bird sings it's song she will be remembered with fondness. I will light a candle on May 4th @ 11:00 a.m.
My darling Margaret, you were my best friend, my one and only love and now you are gone, my heart is breaking but I shall always remember the love and fun we had together for the rest of my life. I Do Miss You So.
Mum, you will be very sadly missed. You were my bestfriend, my soul mate, my rock. Thank you for being my mum it was a absolute privilege too have you as our mum. 💏 it's not goodbye but farewell until we meet again. Poppy & daisy, pickles sent you a lick. Love you very very much.
Love Michelle. Xxxxxxx
I was very sorry to learn that Edna passed away last Saturday. I met Edna at Crawley Scottish country dance class where I started dancing in 1977. She (and Peter) were experienced dancers and were very good at helping and encouraging new dancers. I fondly remember sharing Edna and Peter's company at dances and SCD holidays. They were both founder members of Crawley SCDC and worked very hard for the club over the years. My sympathy goes to Jo, Ian and their families at this very sad time.
Mike-I look away for a minute and you change all expectations-I don’t know where you’ve gone but a few weeks ago I thought we’d be making the trip together- typical! You jumped the gun again-I’ll miss you, but I’ll see you soon.
It's so hard to put into words how much you mean to me. You are my everything, and my rock. I want to honor you the best way I can. You are the reason I am able to get out of bed. Your memory will live on forever. I love you very much. Can't wait to physically see you!
In the hearts of those she touched, for nothing loved is ever lost and she was loved so much. Take strength in your faith and know He is there to comfort you in the coming months. So much love to a wonderful family. ♥️
