  1. You will be in our thoughts and hearts ❤️ forever. Loved so much and I’m heart broken 💔.Rest in Peace. Your loving daughter in law Kerry xxx

  2. Grandad…what can I say, I never expected that the end of 2023 would be the year we would be saying goodbye.
    To me you were strong, independent, content and collected and I admired this on you. I will hold and cherish many memories that we share, a lot from when I was younger.
    A couple I shall reminisce now- On a weekend when you would let me join you “up the club” you always knew to get me a glass of coke with a glacier cherry on a cocktail stick sitting at the top, you knew how much I loved those cherries and never failed to make sure I had what I enjoyed!
    Or like the time you came home with a little terrier dog and you and nana asked me specifically to give her a name in which I responded with pretty much every girls name in my school class until we settled on “Kirsty” who again was a girl at school and I couldn’t wait to tell her I had named my nans and grandads dog after her!
    You had always been there for me and our family and I knew I could rely on you for absolutely anything.
    It’s going to be strange not coming to see you in your bungalow, talk about prices of things, going into your little garden and showing me your plants, saying “there’s nothing on this bloody telly!” And especially strange at Christmas time when your chair at the table will be empty. I love you dearly and still cannot fathom you not being here but I know you shall be waiting up there for us all. Love you forever and ever grandad. I’ll be seeing you. Samantha xxxxxxx

  3. We are so sorry to hear you have gone, we have fond memories having drinks and playing bingo at different clubs. Fond times hearing about some of your past, you will be missed by Myself and Fiona and the people at Norton Club.
    Rest in peace dear friend.

  4. Will always remember seeing you walking your dog, and will always remember our brief conversations. Rest easy Gerald!
