This glade is dedicated to Woody.
Our friend. Our brother. Our son.
Architect of the second generation of Lemons.
You were a crossing point for so many groups of people, and are responsible for so many lasting friendships. You made all our lives better.
every obscene mission undertaken
every battered hat
every frame tent held together by gaffa tape and twigs
every lemon launched
every sub-1-minute rolling time
every swirling flame
every shaft of the sunrise at the stone circle
Do not stand at my grave and weep;
I am not there. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow;
I am diamond glints of snow;
I am the sunlight on ripened grain;
I am the gentle autumn's rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush;
I am the swift uplifting rush
of quiet birds encircled flight.
I am the soft star that shines at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry;
I am not there, I did not die.
You'll never be forgotten, darling. I think about you every day and pray that the life I am living is one that would make you proud. Tears, thanks, and love. Lemon lemon lemon. Fly free! xxx

Dear Scott, we are all missing you so much this Christmas.
Mum, Dad and Richard. The most incredible person we've ever known. So sorry you had to leave. You are always with us. Whoop! Love and lemons, jandan. With the greatest of pleasure and in fond remembrance of the GOOD man. Michael Hackett-Mingsong (Tiscali TMC) Woody, you were a genius and an inspiration. Martian I knew you for such a short time, yet saw clearly how much you touched others lives. People's lives have been enriched through knowing you. Lucy You made us smile and touched our souls, your laughter remains in our hearts. Through my tears, feel more than pain, each time I smile, you live again. Woody, thank you for teaching me how lush life can be, and thank you for loving me. I will always love you too. Lu xxxx Whoooooooooooooop love the LQs Spinning fire and sparkling wool, you lived your life to the full. The gifts you shared with one and all, now we'll carry on the call. A part of you we'll always take, an energy to recreate. A source of light, of love, of fun - of frenzied fire, forever young. So now with everything we do, we always ask ' ...what would 2 do?' J Will never forget you Woody. You are sadly missed. Lots of Love and Lemons. Dunc For 2. I owe you thanks and hugs W2- I hope you know that. We all miss you so much. With love and a lorryload of lemons, Hans xx A year on and I still miss you Woody, you were an inspiration, a legend and a real friend. Tiscali lost a magical influence with your departure; it's never been the same since. With lots of love, Jamie, Kathy and the little w1bbles. We will miss you always, Mum, Dad and Richard. Woody, we never forget that our family only exists because of you. Big lemony love, Derek, Lucy, Maya and Sacha xx Still missing you Woody. You are truly remembered. Hopefully they can grow some giant Redwoods in your name. Gary.
