    My Dad passed away 6 months ago yesterday. It has been a sad time. The funeral directors sent me a tag on which I can write his name and a message and then hang it on a Christmas Tree that they have in their foyer. I think it is such a lovely idea. So I would like to start one on here to remember all those wonderful people that made our lives so much richer.


    I miss and love you so much.

    Thank you for everything you did for me over the years.

    Be happy, be free.

    Your ever loving daughter

    What a lovely idea. My Dad died in August last year and the funeral directors we used did the same thing but I couldn't use it then so thanks for this opportunity.

    To my Dad

    Thanks for everything you did for me. I hope I was there for you when you were ill as much as you were there for me throughout my life. I'm looking after Mum.

    Love Catherine

    For Dad who died on March 4th and Mum who died on 21st October - Christmas will be so, so different this year and I am sure many tears will be shed. Yesterday, I placed a lovely photograph of you both next to the Christmas tree. you are laughing your heads off in the photograph, just how I want to remember you.

    Thank you both for being the wonderful Mum and Dad that you were for 56 years.
    Love, Carol

    for my precious dad, who died 30 July this year. with thanks for that chaotic, traumatic but wonderfully close last few months together. a gentle man who never seemed to forget that he loved me, even when he forgot everything else.

    Oh Dad, my Dad . . .
    you were always such a "larger than life" person - a raconteur, a person born ot of time . . . the most loving heart and a stoic about pain . . . so many memories of you. I wish so much we could have you back. May your belief in Heaven not be in vain. I love you now and forever. Nell

    Hi Angela

    Yes it is upsetting, but sometimes it makes you feel better to get it out.........and who knows, maybe they can hear or know how we're feeling...............still can't bring myself to go to the cemetery yet............but i've ordered a lovely xmas vase and 12 red roses.............hope i make it!............i bought a huge bunch of orchids about a month ago and they died in the boot of my car..........kept going, but couldn't go in!

    Coward or what!

    Its somehow easier to say it here, than it is to say it at the graveside!

    Love Alex x

    Beep breath as I say I would like to get a picture of a Labrador dog make a tag of it put it up on the Christmas tree , for my dad who died on Jan, 4, ,02 , that memory of when we both went together to get sandy, when I was 8 is a lovely memory that make me smile and is still crystal clear in my mind.

    Also for my untie I would make a tag photo cope of a photo of her in her nursing uniform , reminds me of her coming home tried from night work and still taking me to the beach in Gibraltar from the age of 11 , Lorena died Jan 2 06 .

    to my grandma Flo,
    you passed away on the 26th November, over 2 weeks ago and only today has it hit me that you have gone. you will be greatly missed but at least you are at peace now. At least you are with grandad and uncle peter now and they can look after you as we did.
    Someday we will meet again.
    Love always

    For my beautiful dad who was snatched away from me on the 14 June 1982.

    Thoughts of you come drifting back
    Within this heart of mine
    I take a trip to yesterday
    Another day in time.

    A time when I was growing up
    And you were always there
    Put to the test, you did your best
    You handled things with care.

    For holding out, not giving in
    When others got their way
    For saying no, my strength did grow
    I thank you dad, today.

    To you, I owe so many thanks
    For teaching right from wrong
    For many lectures you bestowed
    I sing a different song.

    I thank you for the sacrifice
    Of working everyday
    For all you’ve given in this life
    I’m thanking you today.

    For all I am, I owe to you
    You surely led the way
    So many lessons learned in life
    I thank you dad, today.

    Your loving daughter Cate

    For my dad who died on this day in 1999 ....

    I miss you so much and I'm so glad that I managed to tell you that I loved you before you left us.

    I know you are in Heaven
    I know I must keep moving along
    The path to greater meaning
    Till I find where I truly belong
    But there's one persistent question
    That keeps me coming back to you
    Was there really nothing I could do?
    While I try to find the answer
    In every phase that I pass through
    You know it's strange,
    But I grow more and more like you.

    Love, Paul

    FOR MY DAD (19-09-1913-24-08-2005)

    I miss you so much, I just wish I could still give you a hug, I talk to you, but just wish I could hear your voice, I never realised how much you did for Mum and just wished you had told us how bad things were.
