(The Most Beautiful Niece - Both Inside and Out...my chief Bridesmaid)


The sweetest smile you've ever seen,
Belonged to my niece, Geraldine.
A heart of gold, an angel on earth,
She suffered so much,
From the time of her birth.



A hole in her heart,
And blind in one eye,
Not once did she question,
As to the reason why.



She fought so hard,
To keep up with the rest,
And achieved so much,
And was one of the best.



Her confidence grew,
She began enjoying her life,
But that life was taken,
Before she became a man's wife.



A lorry stopped, on the icy road,
But the driver's mind was on delivering his load.
Not seeing her fall,  as her bike slipped to the ground,
He drove the vehicle forward, and she was Heaven bound.



We all cried that day,
When the angels came,
And none of our lives,
Were ever the same.



At her grave we all wept,
There was not a dry eye,
Her boyfriend broke down,
And just wanted to die.



It was the hardest of days,
For us all to live through,
But we had to go on,
There was nothing we could do.



It's been 25 years since that awful day,
When at 19 years old she was taken away.
I've never stopped missing her,
My niece and my friend,
And today as ever, to sweet Geraldine,
All my love I do send.

Nothing in this world can take away the pain
even after all this time...

Nothing can take away
the love we have for her and always will...

Nothing can take away
the hole left in all of our lives...

I know a loaf of bread is an odd thing to bring back memories about someone but to me it brings back lovely memories of Geraldine and myself trying to track down yeast in Hertford so that I could make bread.

It was the 1970s and because of the miner's strike and the three day week bread was scarce. If you didn't get to the shop early you didn't get any or you had to queue for ages for it. Instead of having all that hassle I decided to make some but we couldn't find any yeast in Ware, Hertfordshire where Geraldine lived so we got on a bus to Hertford to track some down. We got some and went back to her house and made loads of loaves and filled the freezer with them. I think she was only about 9 or 10 at the time. She and her brothers didn't know that you could actually make your own bread..after all..bread came wrapped, fresh from the supermarket didn't it? lol
