  • Fred DICKENS

    In Loving Memory of my Darling Husband Fred DICKENS 26.11.1935 - 27.07.2007 Our relationship was special, I valued it with pride. But I never knew how special, Until the day you died. I look back on the good times, That you and I have known. But all the fun's gone out of it, Doing it alone. The photographs I look at, Time and time again. For a moment you're there with me, And then that awful pain. I'll always have the memories, They'll go on and on. But my life will never be the same, Now that you are gone. Darling you're missed so very much your loving Wife xx Val xx read more
