We will not forget our conversations, walks in the Dorset countryside, late night drinks at the house and our precious memories from Mexico when we got married. You fought cancer valiantly and with a grace, you will never be forgotten. All our Love Andrew, Mariana and Astrid.

  20. Gill, you left this world fighting with so much grace and were taken off us far too soon. Now, your resemblance lives in something beautiful and as a reminder of how much we should appreciate life, no matter what. The memories of you will prevail in eternity. In the Country Side scenery, in the gorgeous wisterias, in every single bluebell, in the Dorset blue skies. Thank you for your friendship, your love, your time. For the laughs and walks, for every single thing you done for me. I’ll remember you in a sunny day, walking through the Jurassic Coast with the wind in your face, so graceful and full of life.

    Rest in peace my Scottish Princess 💜
