Ron. A very special dad, always there to help through the good and the bad. I didn't always give you the easiest of times in my younger days, but you always saw the best in me. We shared many secrets as we continued through the years. You were always there when I needed you. You are my dad and friend, we still laughed and cried together until it was your time and you peacefully fell asleep. I will miss you so much, you will never be forgotten - you were simply the best. Lots of love as always ~ Lesley (Lelly) xx

SHIPMAN (SHIPPY) - 2002
On the day that we were married they told us we were one,
But no one told us what to do when half of one is gone.
What do you do with half a heart or half a will to care?
What do you with half a life now the other half's not there?
You were the other half of me a heart linked with my own,
What do you do with half a life now that I'm on my own?
Shippy my love my life - Peggy.
