My beautiful Mark. Words cannot express my sadness. I have such precious memories and cared for you the best way I could. Your strength was an inspiration. My belongings are safe, my wardrobe is now tidy, you are not wearing my clothes or my glasses. What I would give to have you back in a heartbeat. Now safe in the arms of Jesus until we see each other again. Love you always Chris XX

We watched the service in London but thought of everyone thousands of miles away. It was so simple and beautiful and a fitting tribute to such a kind man. But what a life he had and was loved by so many. Christine, I love you wore yellow, a colour of warmth and light to see him on his way.
