In loving memory of the late Terry Cartwright who sadly passed away on 4th October 2014 .dearly loved and missed by Anthony, Jayne , Tracey and Chris and ever loving wife Sue I am heartbroken and devastated at the sad loss of my wonderful husband Terry who has been taken from me too soon. I will love you forever my darling and cannot imagine life without you xxxxx

Terry was a wonderful, kind, caring man who loved life and his family especially me, he would help anybody and could turn his hands to most things, even as far as baby sitting for customers while doing building work at their home.

Terry had a small building firm with his partner M&C Builders which they ran successfully for 34 years after which he retired and continued to work on our lovely home to make it special for us.

For many years Terry and I and the children spent many happy weekends and holidays in our touring caravan making lots of life long friends and sharing lots of laughs along the way as a happy little unit.

We have had some wonderful holidays and special times with friends who will sadly miss him too.

We are very fortunate to live in a lovely village (Breaston) and so lucky to have neighbours all around us who have also turned into dear friends and Terry would do anything for them.

He enjoyed his Wednesday Morning classes at Exercise for the Heart in Draycott and will be sadly missed there too.

Terry had such a big heart as all of you who touched his life will know and hadn't a nasty bone in his body

No more worrying and no more tears God Bless xxxxx

We were so sorry when we heard Terry had passed away. He was always such a happy, helpful and thoughtful man. Mum and Dad adored their special neighbours and we know they are devastated to have lost such a lovely friend. Our thoughts are with Sue and family. Mike & Suzee Gent and family x

Dear Terry, Sandra and I only got to know you when we moved in across the road from you, and you not only became a good neighbour, but also a good freind.

Because of your career as a builder and man of all trades, you became the man to turn to for help or advised, it was always there, with a smile and very often a joke.

Whenever we went out or came in, if you were on the front garden ,or cleaning your car on the drive, you always had a few words, which then became alot, and before you knew it 10 - 15 minutes, you were always so eager and easy to talk to us or anyone, which is a gift not everyone has.
Your wit, smile and conversation on the pavement or drive will be surely missed by us both,you will always be in our thoughts, and we will both be there for sue if and when she needs any help.

So sleep peacefully terry and god bless...

One of my fondest memories will always be our trip to Cumbria with Terry and Sue to stay at rum bush cottage, spending the days visiting and walking in the lovely countryside and towns and drinking too much then playing scrabble, cards or yahtzee in the evening. I will never be able to play scrabble again without hearing the phrase "play nice" and it bringing a smile to my heart. Rest in peace Terry, I couldnt have asked for a better father in law and was proud to call you dad.

All my love
Jayne

My thoughts go to Sue and all of the family and friends Terry left behind. He was such a wonderful man, my parents neighbour and best friend. If he wasn't in his garden, washing his car or just popping up with his cheerful cheeky face and his funny little gestures, he was just such a lovely man always helping people when they'd not even asked for help he would always miraculously appear. He will be missed by so many and it's so tragic he was took all too soon. I know he will still be around to keep an eye on all his loved ones. My heart goes out to you all. Love Caron, Rebecca and Joshua xxx

The Dragonfly

Once, in a little pond, in the muddy water under the lily pads,
there lived a little water beetle in a community of water
beetles. They lived a simple and comfortable life in the pond
with few disturbances and interruptions.

Once in a while, sadness would come to the community when one of
their fellow beetles would climb the stem of a lily pad and
would never be seen again. They knew when this happened; their
friend was dead, gone forever.

Then, one day, one little water beetle felt an irresistible urge
to climb up that stem. However, he was determined that he would
not leave forever. He would come back and tell his friends what
he had found at the top.

When he reached the top and climbed out of the water onto the
surface of the lily pad, he was so tired, and the sun felt so
warm, that he decided he must take a nap. As he slept, his body
changed and when he woke up, he had turned into a beautiful
blue-tailed dragonfly with broad wings and a slender body
designed for flying.

So, fly he did! And, as he soared he saw the beauty of a whole
new world and a far superior way of life to what he had never
known existed.

Then he remembered his beetle friends and how they were thinking
by now he was dead. He wanted to go back to tell them, and
explain to them that he was now more alive than he had ever been
before. His life had been fulfilled rather than ended.

But, his new body would not go down into the water. He could
not get back to tell his friends the good news. Then he
understood that their time would come, when they, too, would
know what he now knew. So, he raised his wings and flew off
into his joyous new life!
