HEADER CHALENGE
This weeks theme is by Lew - with MEMORIES.

As you read my Memories, just listen to my music of
 Memories are made of this - sung by 
DEAN MARTIN

My Memories of 3 loved ones who are no longer with us.
MOTHER
My Header
Mother - Me - Dad
This photo was taken by a street photographer at the   seaside resort of Ingoldmells, when I was just a whippersnapper
(Young Lad)
The poem I wrote was  for my Mother as we scattered her ashes in the garden of remembrance

Post Pics

ROB
Married to Julie before he passed away at an early age.
I first met Rob as he taught my 2 lads at school, when they left Primary school to go on to St Hughs school, we became friends with Rob and Julie  and Rob began to come out on a Friday evening for a few Bevvies (drinks) with Richard and I.
Rob,Richard and I had a weekend away in North Yorkshire. 
Rob told us many stories of Battles, and explained all the unexplained things to us pair, His interests Butterflies,The sky and stars and Nature + many more. We became to be known as 
Last of the Summer Strollers.
This Poem I wrote and read out at the Scattering of Robs Ashes
The Poem and 2 pics of us 3 in Yorkshire

ME
Rob    Richard

5 years on - I met Julie again and 12years later we are married and so Happy and share the Love of Rob.


GRACE

I first met Grace when Julie and I got together.
Grace used to be  neighbours with Rob and Julie when they first got married and became life long and true friends.

Grace was very independant and into Gardening, sowing and many more - she still had an allotment  well into her 90s.
Grace said she didn't want to see 100 and get her Telegram from The Queen.
Bless Her
Grace passed away just 6 weeks before  her 100th Birthday

Julie made this Board of Memories for Grace's Funeral


I hope you enjoy my memories of just 3 people that were dear to me and who always will live in my Heart

Please go to my side bar - near my shield and visit the other HEADBANGERS and see their take on 
MEMORIES by Lew.

GOOD LUCK.

Lovely and loving remembrances!

All touching memories, as are your tributes to each of them! Strange sometimes, how life reconnects us over time to ones we knew before.

Mac: What a neat way to share your memories of those who have passed. Love the header photo of little Mac.

Sweet memories. It warms my heart.

Say, who is that smart young man walking next to your mother? I might have assumed it was you, but it can't be because I don't see a camara 'round his neck. ;-)
