  1. Thinking of you Kerry at this sad time.
    We will be watching the live stream from our home.
    You have not really lost him,
    he has not gone too far.
    He’s gone to his Father’s home,
    and left the door ajar.

  19. We will miss you Grandpa and are already missing hearing your voice. You had such a caring warm nature that we all loved. We are all proud of the man you were and legacy you have left behind. You were first to attend any events, congratulate us on our achievements and to be there for a chat and a beer at any time. I especially enjoyed our chats during our Barclay Christmases, I will cherish those forever. I find myself incredibly lucky to be your grandson and to have been such a wonderful grandpa to Amy and great-grandpa to Patrick. We all love and miss you terribly.
