James Black's memorial grove
1935 - 2006

James Black grove

A dearly loved Husband, Father, Brother and Grandad.

Life Goes On

If I should go before the rest of you

Break not a flower

Nor inscribe a stone

Nor when I am gone

Speak in a Sunday voice

But be the usual selves

That I have known

Weep if you must

Parting is hell

But life goes on

So....sing as well

A fitting tribute to a man who loved the great outdoors. We miss you so much. Love Meta, Jennifer, Bruce, Finlay & Louisa When we were young and went out for walks you would quizz us on what trees we were seeing - if we got it correct you promised us a sweetie on our way home, but we never seemed to pass the shop! Our much loved and missed Dad. Heather & Jim

Your grove of trees

The trees in this grove will be carefully planted in protected sites in the Scottish Highlands where they will create homes for wildlife and forests for the future.
