Messages of Condolence for Veronica


Although I’ve known Ron for many years its through illness that we became friends.
We shared experiences and advice and I hope helped each other through. Its very sad that what brought us closer has now pulled us apart. Ron will be missed by all.
God bless darling, only comfort now, no more pain. Xxxx


My darling wife of nearly 50 years, Thank you for your love and the memories that you have left. Thank you for our 3 children. You fought a great battle now it’s time to rest. My everlasting love as always


My darling Ron We have shared so much together over our 40 years of not just being sister in laws but close friends. So much chatter putting the world to rights. Laughter into the early hours, in the company of Mr Pinot Grigio. I love you with all my heart. Thank you for being the most kind thoughtful and forgiving person I have known, always putting others before yourself. I miss you so much. Until we see each other again, as always, the last thing we ever say to each other. Love you. Love you. xxxxx

To Michael and family,
Though our words can do little, we hope our thoughts and prayers
will support you at this sad time.
Heaven has gained a beautiful angel
Sleep tight Veronica. xxxx


In the ten years that Ness has been my best friend, you were always so kind and welcoming to me. You made me feel like I was part of the family at times! You always asked after how I was and sent your love to my family, and for that I am so grateful. I hope you know that we always sent it back too! I wish I could have seen you again more recently, but I am glad you are suffering no more. I want you to know that I will always be by Nessa’s side. Lots of love, from Holly xx

Mum. Your courage and strength over the past two and a half years has been an inspiration to us all. We are all so proud of how you dealt with everything. You are amazing and I can’t thank you enough for everything you’ve done for me, all the patience you showed me and all the support you have given to me. Your not only my mum but my best friend. Words cannot describe how much I will miss you. Xxx

I will always remember my Auntie Ron as a loving, kind and unalterably caring lady. No matter how long it had been between visits or chats I always felt like time disappeared when in her company as she was so warm and welcoming. I have very fond memories of Auntie Ron from when I was growing up which I will cherish for many years to come. For example, the time when I little and we’d all gone for a walk in the (very muddy) woods. My wellies had gotten stuck in the mud and come off whilst I’d been trudging down a path, leaving me marooned in the mud with ridiculously wet, mucky socks… Being quite a serious child at times I was horrified, and obviously I was worried about what my meticulously tidy mom would say, but Auntie Ron knew exactly what to say and do to make me feel better and to cheer me up. She was just so easy to talk to and so gentle – it made all the difference to me that day Weirdly I guess, a lot of my other more vivid memories of Auntie Ron involve mealtimes and food… And I say that’s weird as I don’t particularly remember Auntie Ron as being a ‘natural’ cook!! But I do remember lots of mealtimes spent together eating her legendary buffets, breakfasts and Chinese takeaways, not to mention those massive, family sized lasagnas!! Glaringly, it was the company and not the food that make those memories so sweet for me, with lots of laughter and love. And real butter – Auntie Ron will remain in my mind as the only person I knew who always had real butter in her kitchen She will be missed greatly, but always remembered with love and affection by us all xx


It’s been my privilege to have known Veronica for over fifty years. Firstly as Michael’s girlfriend, then as a sister in law, as a dedicated and loving mother and subsequently a loving and proud grandmother.
Through all of these times Veronica remained a selfless, caring and loving person.
Dealing with her problems of recent years she remained positive and strong (although I’m sure there were bad moments) and this positivity has certainty helped those around her. Personally, her attitude has been a great comfort, and I take many happy memories from these last few years. Jean and I are so grateful that Veronica, Michael and Vanessa found the strength to come to stay with us in Portugal, and we have many very happy memories and photographs to treasure.
I seem to have used the word loving several times here….it would be impossible to write about Veronica and not… A truly loving sister xx


My darling kind, gentle, beautiful sister, some years ago I gave you a key ring fob containing a few simple words that carried a far deeper resonance of the love and understanding we shared.

It said :

We have a bond between us you and I, that stems from our beginning.
However great the distance between us you will always be my closest friend.

You are my sister.

Your passing has made the distance between us greater for a little while, but our bond is unbroken. It remains intact and its strength is undiminished. Our love is as deep as ever it was and will remain unchanging until we are together again.
Thank you to the best sister anyone could ever have.

Ann and Barry

Our deepest love and sympathies to Michael, a wonderful husband to Veronica and someone very dear to us, to Vanessa who lovingly and tirelessly nursed her Mum and kept her spirits up with her gentle, sunny disposition, to Andrew who always seemed unerringly to know what his Mum needed without a word being spoken, and to Georgina whose children, along with Andrew’s children, brought such joy to her life.
Our love to you all. We are lucky to call you family x


I thank you for always making me feel so welcome every time we met and for bringing one of my bestest friends into this world. Your passing is so sad for those still here & I know you will be missed immensely. Your courage and determination through the past few years of your life has been unbelievable. Wishing you many blessings for the next part of your journey xxx

To Ness and the rest of the family, I wish I could be closer to help support you during this time. Please know that I am here for you and will do anything I can to help, even from the depths of the country. With love from us all, Emmie & family xxx

Our wonderful Auntie Veronica.

Thank you for always showing us love and kindness. From your infectious laugh and sense of humour to your deep affection and thoughtful nature.
We will always miss you, but thankful we knew you as family.
Beautiful inside and out and comforted that for us you will always shine bright.
