Thank you for the years we shared,
The love you gave, the way you cared.
In my heart you’ll always stay
Loved and remembered every day.

To hear your voice, to see you smile,
To sit and talk to you a while.

Would be our greatest wish today

Softly the leaves of memories fall
Gently we gather and treasure them all

Memories are like stars that shine,
They last until the end of time.
Time has changed so many things,
But never the sadness this day brings.
In accordance with Hartley’s wishes a private funeral will be held
