A Grove of trees in the Scottish Highlands
In Loving Memory
Bruce Mill
18th February 1969 - 13th January 2011

Bruce Mill grove

There's a very special garden

Where the trees of memory grow

Nurtured by the kindness

And concern that good friends show.

The roots are cherished memories

Of good times in the past

The branches tender promises

That souls endure and last.

It's a place of peace and beauty

Where bright new hopes can start

It's memory's lovely garden

That soothes the hurting heart.

Dear Bruce

Through this grove you will live on, not only in our memories and hearts, but in this beautiful land that you so admired.
I have such fond memories of our adventures, exploring new lands and watching you smile with happiness at the magnificence of the landscape before us. You always spoke in fondness of pine trees and the great towering giants of
the forest, their strength is how I will remember you, may you sweep through them like the wind, inhale their scent and find peace in their protection. I will miss your company, humour and friendship,
but will smile when I imagine these trees and think of you....

Rest in peace,

Love you,

Becky xxx

I believe that imagination is stronger than knowledge - myth is more potent than history - dreams are more powerful than facts - hope always triumphs over experience - laughter is the cure for grief - love is stronger than death.

Miss you little brother.
Hate that we can't speak anymore.
Look after us all and keep us safe.
Watch over Luca he'd have loved you.
Till I see your beautiful face again.
Love you TTMAB Always xxxx

A year has nearly passed since you left us....but you are still here...
your name is spoke fondly in stories, your endless payasadas make us smile,
your strength has taught us courage, but most of all....
your warmth and love has given comfort and reassurance,
you are watching over all of us, you have not gone, you are everywhere.
Sending you love and giant green smoke rings, your friend always, Becky xxx

I thought of you today, but that is nothing new.
I thought about you yesterday, and days before that too......
I think of you in silence, I often speak your name.
All I have are memories and a picture in a frame....
Your memory is a keepsake, from which I'll never part.
Your up there high above but I have you in my heart.
To my special friend Bruce may you rest in peace.
With love Sam. xx

Dear Bruce,
When we all met at Zoe & Gareths wedding
& had that mad weekend in Wales,
Me & Emma knew that everytime we saw u & Bex
we would have a right laugh together &
a hangover would be guaranteed the next day.
My only regret is that we lost touch &
did not know what was happening during your last months.
I met a few of ur pals at ur wake yesterday &
it was clear u will be sorely missed mate.
Take care up there, say hello to every1 I know
get the kettle on.
rest in peace Bruce

love from Aaron Emma daisy & Evie x x
