A Grove of trees in the Scottish Highlands

In Memory of a Wonderful Mum and Dad. grove

I would like to dedicate this grove of trees
to a wonderful mother and father.
They taught me the true value of the things
that really matter in life,
though I did not realise it at the time
and they showed me so much love and kindness
throughout my childhood,
I am forever in their debt.
Though we did not have a car and were not well off,
we never went without a holiday
for they were both very hard workers.

I have many happy memories of them
and often think of them
with great fondness and love.
It is only now that I have a son of my own,
Joseph, their grandson and named after my father,
that I realise just how much love and affection
that they showed to me.

Of all the people that have seen my son,
they never have and I only wish that they could do.
I would love and wish so much for them
to be able to meet their only grandson,
for I know they would love and adore him very much.

Thank You Mum and Dad,
I love you and miss you both with all my heart.

Your Loving Son David, my wife Sandra and your grandson Joseph.

I am forever grateful to my mother and father for the love, kindness and wounderful childhood they gave to me. Very many incredible memories. Thank You. If only we could go and do it all over again.

Every night when I put my son to bed and read him stories, I remember the times I was read to and the books my mother would read to me. I think of my mother and father at these times and of how they would love to kiss him good night, so I give him an extra kiss from them. Thanks for all your love and I think of my parents each day. Your only son, David.
