A Grove of trees in the Highlands of Scotland

In Loving Memory of

Robert Wilson

28/11/1953, 01/04/2010

This grove was created in honour of Robert Wilson who was a loving husband, dad, granda, brother and uncle, You'll never be forgotten,

You never said I'm leaving
You never said goodbye
You were gone before I knew it,
And only God knew why
A million times I needed you,
A million times I cried
If Love alone could have saved you,
You never would have died
In Life I loved you dearly
In death I love you still
In my heart you hold a place,
That no one could ever fill
It broke my heart to lose you,
But you didn't go alone
For part of me went with you,
The day God took you home

Our grove

The donations total of £210 will plant a grove of 40 trees!

Not just a father was he
But a daddy and a friend
Even when he punished me
The purpose had an end

You traded away your youth
Worked hard day and night
Dedication revealing truth
To raise your children right

One of the last of a generation
Of fathers tough and true
Earned our respect and admiration
Like good role models do

Your time on earth ended
And although I'm empty and sad
Wounds are somehow mended
With loving memories of you dad

Love and Kisses Lynnie

Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal. love and miss you always. Karen, Shannon and Freya xxx

On this day a year ago, your life came to an end.
So much has happened, so much you have missed.
We still think about you everyday, and miss you more and more.
Lots of love, dad. Lynnie xxxxx


An honest man lies at rest,
As e'er God with His image blest;
The friend of man,the friend of truth,
The friend of age,and the guide of youth;
Few hearts like his,with virtue warmed,
Few heads with knowledge so imformed:
If there's another world,he lives in bliss;
If there is none,he made the best of this.

Robert Burns must have known my brother Robert in another life.

Love and miss you till the end of time.
