McLELLAN, Marilyn Susan. 1.01.1952 – 18.10.2016
When I think about the happiness that you and I shared,
And all the things you’ve said and done to show how much you cared.
Although we seldom mentioned it, we both knew it was true,
We had the kind of happiness, life gave to very few.
A home that we both cherished, a family we held dear,
And love for one another, that grew deeper every year.
Cherished wife, missed every day – Erroll McLellan
McLELLAN, Marilyn Susan. 1.01.1952 – 18.10.2016
For those moments we have been so close,
For those times we’ve needed you the most.
For all the loving things you have done,
For being a truly perfect mum.
For all those things, and millions more,
That never seemed to be a chore.
We give thanks and all our love,
In the thought that when we look above,
The brightest star in all the sky,
Is that same sparkle once in your eye.
We’ll never stop loving and never forget,
The greatest mum we ever met.
Loved and dearly missed mother and grandmother Kerilee, Megan, Asha and Jet
