ACKNOWLEDGEMENT The family of the late Irene wish to thank all relatives, friends and neighbours who helped celebrate mums life. Many thanks for all the beautiful floral tributes, many lovely cards of sympathy and also the generous donations for Kidney Research. Many thanks to Rev Steve Davie of St James’s Church Tong for the lovely service and to Helen for all her help. Special thanks to Tong Liberal Club, where mum spent many happy hours and for the lovely buffet, not forgetting mum’s wonderful nurses, homecare and doctors who took care for her in her own home. Many thanks to Richard and Staff at Gateway Funeral Services for all their kindness and professionalism at this difficult time. She was loved by all that knew her. A mother’s love is final, unconditional and true, every child should have one, a mother just like you, gentle kind and giving, selfless to the last, making happy memories, for the future and the past.
Dear Grandma, You will be sadly missed, you were a lovely Grandma and I will treasure all the wonderful memories and times we were together, both in Bradford and when you visited Wensleydale for Christmas dinners. I hope you are with Grandad, give him my love, and here's a great big kiss for you. Sleep tight. All my love, your granddaughter, Julie x
