  3. Thank you grandad giving me a good childhood and teaching me so much when I was little to building bird boxes to put in your garden & in the woods where we used to take prince.

Say hi to prince for me too and take him on good walks again please. I’ve got a part of you close to my heart everyday and you will not be forgotten ever From David, mason & Riley

  5. As my father in law i remember all the good times watching football with you and having a beer after the game. We went all over the place to watch football had lots of laughs. I miss those days. I hope the last 8 years were enjoyable for you coming over to Weymouth and eating out at the Rock Hotel Saturday nights when they did steak dinners for a fiver. We also ate out in a lot different places to numerous to mention. Well time for your next adventures, i wonder what they will be, i shall always remember ours.
    Rest easy and peacefully.

  6. Cedi was a great friend & neighbour,always happy to help or advise me on anything to do with the garden or d I y ,but as he was such a perfectionist he could always spot the small mistakes I had made even if nobody else could! We had many nice meals out together,stocking up on sweets on the way home,I have always admired the way cedi was never afraid to say it as it is ,great memories rest in peace my friend ,you will be sorely missed,
