I Am Not There
Do not stand at my grave and weep.
I am not there. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.

When you awaken in the
morning's hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars
that shine at night.

Do not stand at my
grave and cry.
I am not there;
I did not die.

You can shed tears that he is gone, 
Or you can smile because he lived, 

You can close your eyes and pray that he will come back, 
Or you can open your eyes and see all that he has left. 

Your heart can be empty because you can't see him 
Or you can be full of the love that you shared, 

You can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday, 
Or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday. 

You can remember him and only that he is gone 
Or you can cherish his memory and let it live on, 

You can cry and close your mind, be empty, and turn your 
back, 
Or you can do what he would want: smile, open your eyes, 
love and go on. 
David Harkins

I have enduring memories of Hugh when I was young. although he seemed very reserved I enjoyed his dry sense of humour-when I was at primary school I was surprised to see him landscaping!
Hugh is loved and will be missed in equal measure

My Hero

A firm but loving touch
is what you gave to me.
You helped me learn to be strong
and stand on my two feet.
But when I needed you
You were there all of the time.
You are my dad, my hero,
And you’re the apple of my eye.

Hugh loved Jamaica and was very upset when he had to return to England in 2006 as a result of his illness which was subsequently diagnosed as Parkinsons.

Hugh retained his dry sense of humour during his illness and would often have us all laughing at the things he said.

Hugh was always included in family activities throughout his illness and knew how much he was loved and cared for. He will always be in our hearts and we will miss him very much.

My darling sister, nieces, nephew and great nieces I have so much respect for you all. I know that the recent days and weeks have not been easy but I know you will continue to support each other knowing that you have done your very best for Hugh Williams (husband, dad and grandad).
God bless you all. xxx

Hugh Willliams

My earliest memory of Hugh was when I was about 7 and he visited our house in Kingswood Rd and he smacked me for being rude to him. I remember running down the garden and vowing never to speak to him again! Of course that did not last for long.

May your memories of Hugh Williams (brother-in-law) help you find comfort at this time. You, his family (wife - Corrine, brother-in-law - Dennis, daughters, grandchildren and even the newest great grand children) took such good care of him. Many blessings....Darral xoxo

Hugh was 83 years of age when he died from Parkinson's disease. He left behind his wife Corriene and daughters Sylvia, Joy and a son Michael. Hugh also had another son called Donald who died when he was 24 years of age. May their memories continue to stay alive and their spirits guide us until we all meet again. Joyx

My dad Hugh died peacefully at home on the 16th August. His wife Corriene was reading him some passages from the Bible Psalm 19 & 23 just before he took his last breath. He will be greatly missed by all his family. Joy x
