Pat, Cindy & Victoria Nigh

Truly a beautiful and charming lady who we are very proud to call our Aunt Mary. Even though distance was a factor living across the pond in Canada we always had a special relationship. The phone calls, cards and letters I will cherish forever more. My phone call at Christmas time truly was a blessing and when I hung up the phone that day I expressed myself to Pat "there now I have had my Christmas!" It meant the world to me. A gift no money could buy. God Bless You. Sending all our love!


Mary Mary you made us laugh you made us cry, we'll love and miss you until the end of time. x

I didn't say good night , God bless, You fell asleep , you needed rest. You laid in slumber , eyes closed tight , To leave you sleeping felt just right . This never , ever happened before , You sleeping , while I closed your door . Now with regret I must confess , I should have said "Goodnight , God bless". Now you're in the hands of God , You feel no pain , discomfort , stress . Please hear me when I say tonight , Dear Mary , "Good night , God Bless " Love always Tim xxx
