    An empty space has just appeared
    A light has just gone out,
    Many hearts have just been broke

    And we know you always will.

    • Dear Uncle Mugsy,

      I see you sitting their, in your comfy chair, listening to our stories and chatter, you were always part of the agony aunts natter. You often chirped out a funny sentence and would have us all in laughter, it would usually come out of nowhere and then you’d sit back and giggle with us after. You were a strong brave man, always there for everyone. You were a dedicated husband and an amazing dad to two sons. You touched the lives of many and were loved and treasured dearly. You were stolen from us to soon but we know that you wouldn’t have given up easy. You fought to the very end, still telling the odd joke here and there but now it’s time to start your next chapter, just have a drink ready for us when we meet again. We miss you Uncle Mugsy, like you wouldn’t believe. Rest up now. See you on the other side.
      Billie & Dave xx

  6. Uncle Mugsy. You are so loved by so many people. You will be missed so much. Thank you for all the memories. Our hearts are broken. Until we meet again. xx
