Life is short. Break the rules, forgive quickly, kiss slowly, love truly, laugh uncontrollably, and never regret anything that makes you smile. We're not quantified; there's no chart of desire. When the roaring flames of your heart have burned down to embers, may you find that you have married your best friend. [Steven Tyler]

Goodbye Dear Friend

May the road rise to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face.
May the rains fall soft upon your fields
and until we meet again,  
the Lord hold you in the palm of His hand.
Irish Blessing


Geoff quietly passed away yesterday morning at 05.35 am. Stuart has lost his very dear friend and his 'model railway' partner in crime. This gentle, sweet man will be deeply and sadly missed.

Our thoughts are with you all, Lynn - it's never easy losing a friend, but what a lovely verse to say farewell.

Oh Lynn, I'm so sorry. I can't believe you let us have so much fun at the workshop when you must've been crying inside.

Big hugs to both you and Stuart.

Love
