Robert Wilson grove

This grove was created in honour of Robert Wilson who was a loving husband, dad, granda, brother and uncle,
You'll never be forgotten,


You never said I'm leaving

You never said goodbye

You were gone before I knew it,

And only God knew why

A million times I needed you,

A million times I cried

If Love alone could have saved you,

You never would have died

In Life I loved you dearly

In death I love you still

In my heart you hold a place,

That no one could ever fill

It broke my heart to lose you,

But you didn't go alone

For part of me went with you,

The day God took you home

Add trees to this grove

I can’t believe it’s been 9 years without you dad.
It doesn’t seem that long,
but then I look around and see everything you’ve missed
and it feels even longer.
We all miss you so much, xxxx

Not just a father was he
But a daddy and a friend
Even when he punished me
The purpose had an end

You traded away your youth
Worked hard day and night
Dedication revealing truth
To raise your children right

One of the last of a generation
Of fathers tough and true
Earned our respect and admiration
Like good role models do

Your time on earth ended
And although I'm empty and sad
Wounds are somehow mended
With loving memories of you dad

Love and Kisses Lynnie

Aye life goes on Robert but its a lot sadder with you gone.
You are always in our thoughts

The best brother and uncle without a doubt. xxx

An honest man lies at rest,
As e'er God with His image blest;
The friend of man,the friend of truth,
The friend of age,and the guide of youth;
Few hearts like his,with virtue warmed,
Few heads with knowledge so imformed:
If there's another world,he lives in bliss;
If there is none,he made the best of this.

Robert Burns must have known my brother Robert in another life.

Love and miss you till the end of time.
Morag, Graham and all the gang.xxx
