I know of so many places dear to her and can tell you of some if you like. She loved her Green Volkswagen Transporter van. Many of you wave to me when I am driving it, I'm sorry if I don't know your names. She loved her Baby Blue and Orange mountain bike, bought new in 2000 on which she covered about 20,000 miles nearly all offroad, actually prefering to go uphill, being cautious on the downs. She loved her bright yellow sit on canoe, which is a great way to get out on the water for some peace and quiet, seals would sometimes bump the bottom of it as she paddled on the Estuary. Most of all she loved her children, Kate and Lucy, Hannah and Matthew. Kate was always quiet and artistic, and still is. Lucy always possesed an unshakeable confidence. Hannah has twinkly eyes and an ever present smile. Matthew has the heart of a lion. Together, do they remind you of anybody?

In August 1993 she gave birth to Hannah, a tiny bundle of joy. And in September 1995 Matthew came along, our only child not born at home. It was not very long after this that we felt the need to live near the sea, near Dartmoor, in the South Hams. We moved ourselves here in the Summer of 2002. And she really started to find herself. The Deb that most of us remember was a product of the South Hams. We have always loved the outdoors but here we came to avoid being indoors. Remember her in open spaces, next to rivers, and in woodland. Remember her smile, those twinkly eyes, the cheerful rudeness. Remember her love of favourite clothes and shoes, which she wore until they fell to bits. Remember her painting the outside of the cottage, singlehanded. Remember her mowing the grass in the dark. Remember her love of swimming from the beach in the winter. Remember her dancing around the kitchen, eyes closed and arms in the air. We were at our happiest somewhere remote and peaceful.

Neil's reading

Deb and I met in the Autumn of 1977, when we were both 15. After that we stayed mostly together, but sometimes not, until Christmas 1981, when we were married aged 19. Looking at the photos now we look like two kids in fancy dress, which I suppose, we were. But it worked very well from the start, we were always happy. Sarah was born in January 1983, but only lived for a few days. Going through this brought us even closer together. Kate was born in April 1984 and we became very very happy. It was clear Deb was a natural mother. Lucy came along in June 1987 and our lives just seemed to get even better. When I was 29 Deb insisted that we actually sell our house to open my bike shop, the banks were not lending money at that time. We sold, paid off the mortgage and spent nearly all the rest stocking and opening my little shop. Not once did she ever seem to falter in her confidence in me, or in helping me to live my dream.

Kate's Reading

Not a day went by when she didn't smile, Upon her rosy cheeked face, A result I am sure, (Because is less really more?) Of eating jam doughnuts at pace! And were we suprised to see Mum stomping by, Wearing little more than her wellington boots! Or rushing around in her beloved T4, With three spaniels walked but ready for more! I think what we can see, Is that she loved cake and tea, As much as the rivers, the woods and the moors, Not one day of her life you could say was a bore And she will stay in my heart, Too soon did she part, She was just my wonderful Mum xx

I am so happy that in her last few days, nothing could be said to her or by her that wasn't said many times while she was with us. We know she loved all of us, and she knew that we, indeed many people, loved her. She created so much joy in her 51 years, I am priviliged to have known her, and amazed that she wanted to grow old with me.
