John Watson grove

Go forward quietly

Take courage from my hand

Let me give you over to Eternity

Swim, my darling through the clear water

Fly above your pain & darkness

Go forward bravely

To the sweetest time of life

Love awaits, & warmth & peace

Replace the trials & sickness

Of mere mortals

In memory of John who was my husband for so little time. I loved him dearly & he will be forever in my heart. Alison

Add trees to this grove

21st July 2007

In memory of my beloved brother John with the cheeky smile and a twinkle in his eye. He will be sorely missed by us all. Barbara Alan David Andrew & Michael x John, I only knew you briefly; but your passing effects us all. We walked for miles in ARI, John, Jean, Sarah and I. We made sure we checked on one another every day, took trips down to the coffee bar to catch up on the day's news and have a good laugh. John was always cheerful in spite of what was going on in his head, always interested in what was happening to us. We all became very close in the short time we knew each other and had a special bond. We miss John and can't believe he is not here any more. We will always remember him. Jean Guild, Sarah Gordon and Christine Atkinson always remembered. Irene Colin & Rosie Leslie. In Memory of John from Dorothy, Tricia & Margaret Allison Best wishes from Nicky Forster In Memory of John In memory of John In Memory of John from Andrea & Keith Borsden John, I enjoyed the time i spent working with you in Asia. Travel onward towards peace my friend you will be missed. Roy Gone but not forgotten - Andrew, Karen and family
