Jim MATTACKS For your 80th birthday 21st February No one heard the footsteps, Of Angels drawing near. Who took our dad to Heaven, The one we hold so dear. He has not really left us, Nor has he travelled far. He's entered our Lord's garden, And left the door ajar. Our Dad our hero. Sharon, Rob, Jodie & Chloe x
Remembering JIM MATTACKS On his 80th Birthday 21st February 2012 I lost my life's companion. A soul linked with my own. Day by day I pray for you, as I walk alone. The house you left is lonely, and I am lonely too. Though friends are always good and kind, My heart still aches for you. Your loving Wife Eileen.
