On behalf of myself and my family Claire, David, Stephen, Nichola, Luke, Oliver and Izzy a huge thank you to everyone who attended Syd’s funeral. We did not get to speak to everyone, it was impossible, but to know so many people cared was lovely.

Syd was the most kindest loving generous man you could wish to meet, and he would give his last penny away. He had the most infectious smile and personality, a true diamond to us all.

Syd was so proud of his little family, they meant the world to him and if possible, he will be even prouder now.

As a mam seeing them so hurt is heartbreaking. Cherish every precious moment you have with your loved ones. Life is so cruel in the blink of an eye you can lose someone you love so suddenly, our lives will never be the same without this amazing man who was and is loved so much.

Thank you to my sister Ann,Norman and Sam for their help and support. Thank you to Syd’s family and all our friends, love to you all.
As Irene told me the pain never goes away, but you learn to live with it.

All our love Syd from your devoted family xx

On behalf of my mam and sister we wanted to say a huge thank you for everyone’s generous donations at my dads funeral. We raised £1,008 to split between the two charities. Thank you for everyone’s support in what has been a very tough time for our family.

I am gutted to hear you’ve gained your angel wings uncle Syd. Gone too soon you were as fit as a fiddle and it’s such a shock. You truly were one of a kind.
