Dad, what can I say, you touched so many hearts and impacted on so many people. So much love and respect for you. Everyone is doing you so proud and helping to raise so much money to help those who face the same battle you fought so bravely. You kept a smile on your face through all, showing us all how truly incredible you are. I can honestly speak for everyone when I say you are truly missed. Miss you Dad, you'll never be forgotten. X

Jim,
The day you left Milver was a sad day for me, today is even more so, it would be so easy to say " What a lovely person who will be sadly missed" from my heart, that's exactly what i'm going to say, it has always been a pleasure knowing & working with you, nothing was too much trouble for you, we shared break-down problems, cups of tea, jokes, crossword clues and good conversation, many peoples working life were made so much more pleasant purely by your sense of humour and caring nature.
Saying Goodbye to a Mate, Holding on to Good Memories.

Jim.
We have worked together for so many years and have shared good times and bad.
You have supported, advised and carried me through the lowest time of my life.

Through the genes of our fathers we have inherited a sense of humour and tom foolery that has brought laughter and put smile`s on many a face through our life and this will continue with just the mention of your name.
Some of the stories that we have shared in the past, sounds like the family traits will follow on forever.

Memories will live on for all who came into contact with you and we are all blessed with a mind’s eye that we can still see and hear you getting up to mischief and playing that bloody trumpet either when working on your own or in the shower at work.

Your love for your family was always evident when we would talk and I know how proud you are of all of them.

You will never be forgotten and will always be in my heart
