STEVENSON, Noel James. (13.12.1999)
STEVENSON, Alma Jane. (14.10.2012) Today we remember our much loved Mum and Dad, Nana and Grandad and great-grandparents, they never spent a day apart so it is fitting we have one day to remember them both together like they were in this photo. There’s so many mixed emotions when we think of them not here, anger that cancer took them so soon, disappointment and immense sadness they are missing out on so much and seeing their grandkids grow, but also happiness and feeling blessed we had such amazing parents and such an happy upbringing and hope that they will be looking down proud at the legacy they have left. Missed every day. by Johnny, Yvonne, Lana and Jak Stevenson, Deb, Kevin, Michael, Kate and Ella Hall, Julie, Dave and Megan Hughes, Tessa, Jono, Jessica, Harry and Lewis Ryan, Hayley Stevenson with Hamish and James Richardson.
