HOLROYD, Sid
In Memory Of My Husband Sid HOLROYD who passed away November 30, 2004. June 10th 2007 would have been our 46th Wedding Anniversary.
"Down the path of memories,
I gently tread my way,
For my loving thoughts are with you,
As life goes on its way.
I often talk about you,
With love and sad regret,
For I, who loves you dearly,
Never will forget.
The many things you did for me,
In your kind and loving way,
You gave me years of happiness,
No one can take away.
To me you were someone special,
Someone kind and true,
You'll never be forgotten Sid,
For I thought the world of you."
A part of my heart he took with him,
But his love he left me to keep,
So we will never really be parted,
The bond between us is too deep.
Together Forever; Love Always; June

HOLROYD, Sid (February 8, 1939-November 30, 2004)
In loving memory of my best friend, confidant and caring husband Sid HOLROYD Who left us in his 65th year from cancer
In a quiet peaceful cemetery
Where gentle breezes blow
Rests the one we love so dearly
Whom we lost 3 years ago
Your resting place we visit
Placing our thoughts with care
But no one knows the heartache as we turn and leave you there
Our thoughts are always with you your place no one can fill
In life we loved you dearly
In death we love you much more.
Together Forever June HOLROYD
