Those we love don't go away,
They walk beside us every day,
Unseen, unheard, but always near,
Still loved, still missed and very dear.
With our love and thoughts
David, Joanne & Lindsay Bird
I worked with Christine at Little Imps Playgroup for a number of years and it was a joy and a privilage to do so. Many children benefitted from her care and nurture. A lovely lady who will be greatly missed. Rest in peace Christine.
Christine and I had known each other for 10 years; we met on April 19th, 2009 at Reymerston Country Club. I know that because Christine wrote to me and suggested what time to meet.
We liked each other from the start and we met each other again a few days later.
Christine always had a big smile when we met and we enjoyed each other’s company very much, we mostly went out for a ride in the car to the coast or to visit National Trust properties, we were both members.
We sometimes went to the caravan near Cromer and had tea and sandwiches or we would go to Wells or Blakeney to go for a walk.
I remember once we set off for Oxburgh Hall, a National trust property and we got lost, it should have been easy to find but somehow we took the wrong road and we drove round for ages crossing the same roads more than once but eventually we found it and it was well worth finding, we both thought it was funny getting lost and we both had a lovely time at the Hall which is a 15th Century moated manor house.
On wet days we would stay at Tulip Close and sit in the conservatory or in the lounge in the evening with Alice.
Christine kept her home looking lovely and she was also a keen gardener, her garden always looked lovely.
I will always remember Christine as a happy, caring, loving, lovely lady who loved her children; grandchildren and great grandchildren and she will always have a special place in my heart.
