our loving family

Dads biggest dream was to make sure his children were successful in life . There was no measure of success ... but that the happiness of each of us was fully reached in what ever measure it was achieved. Family was everything to dad. On joining our mom in the heaven gates we know the celebration of all they share is still going strong and hold that close to our hearts as once again they are united as one guiding us forward in our path . As mom always said ... dad and mom .. to be continued....

The Aldreds

Hearts break when a loved leaves
They’re here and then they’re gone
Their body, soul and spirit rest
But their memory lingers on.

To have another moment
To talk with a cup of tea
About the times of joy we shared
And sometimes the misery

But we can no longer visit
And live in their generosity
We can share their love to others
It is our legacy.

May the memory of both Jim and Betsy be in our minds and hearts and may we be blessed in knowing them.
Love to the children, their spouses , grandchildren and great grandchildren.

So sorry to hear of your dad's passing. He was a great partner for Betsy, the two were very caring lovely people. I had the prevledge of calling them aunt and uncle through marriage.
