thinking of your smiling face
four long weeks we've been apart
taken from my arms
memories stay in my heart.

We have trifle. On the menu
we will be sure to raise a spoon
to a much loved kind & gentle man
who was sadly taken away too soon.

Thinking of you OJ, how many years would this have been for you? I am dreading our anniversary in Augustsad. Do hope you are able to spend some special time today with your lovely DC's and do something to acknowledge the day in RL.

Oj.Try to think of the happy times with steve on previous times.Sure where ever he is he will be looking down on you eating his trifles and smiling with pride.It must be so heart wrenching for you .When do momster in laws have the memorial planned.I know it was a friday but cant remember if it after you fly out to scatter steves ashes.It will be very tough for you to do that but you can always bring them home and do it another time when you feel stronger.You have amazing friends.JUst tell inlaws you have scattered them even if you dont do it this time.It will get them off your back about that.EXpect they will think of some thing else to have a dig.Try to rise above it,you have done so far.Steves sprirt lives on in the children.GOD BLESS XX
