In Loving Memory


I wouldn't normally put something like this here but this has broke my heart, my dear sister Shirley was going through some very tough times and on the 17th September took her own life, she was only 58yrs, far too young to die, yesterday we had her funeral and I sincerely hope she is now at peace, this has totally devastated us all, Shirley and I had a very special bond and even in death our bond will never be broken, my love for Shirley will live on in my heart until we meet again.
Shirley had three children, 8 grandchildren and one great grandchild, Shirley's son Lee has opened a  Pete's Dragon fund raising page in Shirley's name, this is a charity that helps to support families who have been affected in such tragic circumstances, believe me the families left behind really do need all the support they can get, if any of my followers would like to help to raise funds by making a donation you can do so here

Thank you all in advance.
