A Grove of trees in the Scottish Highlands
Treasured Memories Of
Natalie Hughes
26/8/75 - 21/2/2010

Natalie Hughes grove

Natalie was one of life's finest. She was loved by so many, so very much for so many different reasons. She was unique! Expected little more than genuineness, honesty and loyalty from people she deemed to be her 'True' friends. Her personality was 2 extremes - The loudest and the quietest, most revealing but most private, so care-free yet so over-analytical, the moodiest but also the most jovial. Her qualities were many and she had a sense of humor second to none.

Natalie was consistent where it mattered to her. Consistent in her loyalty to others, in her views, beliefs, morals and in her opinions and she never failed to make people laugh. She had a good heart and a sincere genuineness and she was always true to herself .....Oh, and she was consistently always the last one standing and talking at any party and she was always ready to entertain any flagging guests by treating them to a song and a dance Her star piece was her Liza Minelli impression singing 'Mien Heir' from the film Cabaret. This was one of the songs played at her cremation service. Natalie's sense of humor was deliciously wicked and because she was very observant, she made a superb mimic. Her individuality, quirkiness and quick wit were but a few super elements to her makeup.

Her passing was so sudden and such a shock as it was so unexpected and so very untimely. There will always be a missing Link in her family and friendship chains and these links will forever be irreplaceable. She left a lasting impression on so many and she will continue to remain in our thoughts and in our hearts forever.

Natalie was happy and content with the simple things life had to offer. She was a very artistic person with an original imagination and a creative mind. She loved the Spring-time, the re-generation of colors and the re-birth of natures beautiful elements. Spring-times 'newness' seemed to bring out the creative side of her personality.

Natalie was a beautiful person, inside and out. She was adored by Family and friends and admired and respected by work colleagues. She had an individual and special relationship with each and every person that grew close to during her 34 short years. We all feel honored to have been part of her life and we will NEVER forget her.

We decided the perfect way to honor Nat's life would be to plant a Tree Grove in her memory as it is accessible to everyone who knew her and people could view her memorial page, share memories and plant a tree in her grove. All the trees planted in Natalie's grove will see countless seasons and will remain standing in her name for centuries yet to come.

It will then be added to her grove tree total at the bottom of the page and you can write a few words will also be posted to this page.

"No doubt we'll meet again someday Nutty..
Until then, we'll be seeing you in our dreams Swoodart!"
