JAMES, Kane Barry. 07.04.1974 – 04.06.2018
Of all the special things in life,
However great or small,
To have you as our Son was the greatest gift of all.
A special time, a special face,
A special Son we can’t replace.
With an aching heart we whisper low,
We miss you Son,
And love you so
– Mum and Paul xo
