  7. Remembering my wonderful Godmother, Auntie Susan.
    All the memories I have are very dear,
    Even though you’re no longer here.
    Your smile, your laugh,
    When we did something daft.

    Even though I can’t be there today.
    Will be following along.

    Sending love to Uncle Richard.
    Thinking of you always.

    What a lovely person you were and a great godmother to my girls.
    I will miss you as a person, remembering and missing your smile and infectious laughter. Rest in peace my friend.
    Love you always Maureen xxx
