  3. “ The twinkle in his eye
    Will be that twinkle in the sky,
    That we see at night above
    Whilst we remember him with love.
    As we talk and laugh about him,
    And remember those good times
    He will always be around us
    In our lives and in our minds”

    Our heartfelt sympathy to our beautiful Winsome, Darren, Dolly, Donna, John and all the families. We are all heartbroken.xx
