Hey brother, don’t worry.
I still hear what you say
because I talk to you everyday.
So save me a place at your table
and I’ll join you as soon as I’m able.
But not right now because I still have things to do,
some of which, remind me of you.
Know this Darrin you will not be forgotten
because I’ll always be with you.
My blood, my brother, my privilege.July 13, 2021
As kids, we lived togetherJuly 14, 2021
We fought, we laughed, we cried.
We did not always show the love,
that we both had inside.
We shared our dreams and plans,
and some secrets too.
All the memories we share,
Is what bonds me now to you.
You are my brother not by choice,
but by the nature of our birth
I could not have chosen a better one
you were the best on earth.
Rest In Peace Darrin
Love your sister Allison xx
My Beautiful Son. Those special memories of you, will always bring a smile. If only I could have you back for just a little while.July 18, 2021
Then we could sit and talk again, just like we used to do. You always meant so very much and always will do too.

Willy you where one of a kind
One everybody loved as you told it how it was
I will never forget you kindness as we had
Been neighbours for 18 odd years
We didn’t connect for 2-3 years but when we did
I seen the very caring side of you .
Like taking me on a boat ride with your family it was great
Until I had to get off , But with yours and your family’s
Help was a wonderful day .
You where a family man never interfering with anyone
Unless they needed you then you would always be there
I will never forget you sitting out the front coffee in hand
Then off you would go on your bike .
Always if I was out front you would always say
How ya going matey , that being you favourite saying
All our street knew that and that’s why we all loved about you
RIP Matey ( Willy) you will never be forgotten .
