    A piece of our family furniture has gone, we are going to miss you! We will miss your funny stories and the moments where you wonder what’s coming next! Best story yet has to be naked sun bathing at the back of Brantwood! Just brilliant! You loved the sunshine! A glass of red, the open shirt and chain and the word “Pal’ will always remind us of you! Lots of love Alex, Mark, Charlie and Harriett xx
