Last night after I wrote my previous post I went to bed. I couldn't keep at it any longer, it was hopeless. The words were not gelling and I couldn't see through my tears. So I thought I would have a crack at it with a fresh head this morning. Not that my head is very fresh these days with an unsettled teething Bubbabo who wakes numerous times during the night. So whilst Bubbabo was happy playing and singing on his own this morning, I wrote Max's epitaph. The words finally came together.
So here it is, with names changed obviously. There will be a small camera icon above his name.
Born 28-8-64 Died 11-5-10
A loving husband to Vee and an adoring Daddy to Bubbaboo.
The love of the camera allowed Max to leave many memories
for his family and friends to continue to enjoy.
Max will never be forgotten.
It has been sent to the cemetery consultant now and hopefully the plaque will be ready in time for Max's birthday. It was such a challenge and I am so glad it is now behind me.
I just noticed something....Should the word husband and daddy have a capital letter or not ?
