Peter Hitchen's memorial grove
20 February 1948 - 30 August 2008

Peter Hitchen grove

Rainbows appear through memories of laugher, smiles and joy

combined with loss and sadness, the tears our eyes deploy.

A reflection of our thoughts, briefly shining through,

memories of our love, the bond we share with you.

We've chosen you a legacy that will last for ever more,

A place to be together, when together again we can explore.

Encourage your grove to flourish, your trees to grow tall and strong

And as like us, your Daughters, in the heart you will belong.

Love is such is such a small word, for something that is so vast, for in it lies the future the present and the past... I know you loved and looked after Anne, I hope I can look your Daughter and do a good as job as you. Brian
