We have placed a box on the moor somewhere. Our box has been placed in memory of our dog and our Niece.
Lacey loved walking on the moors and was a keen letterboxer.
Rachael died at the age of 19 from Brain Cancer.
Rachael and Lacey were great friends so we thought it was fitting to place their stamps in the same box.
Below is a copy of the headers we have put in the two visitors books.
THIS IS IN MEMORY OF MY DAUGHTER
RACHAEL SPEAR (WHO’S PHOTO IS
ENCLOSED WHICH WAS TAKEN AT HER
18th BIRTHDAY PARTY). SHE WAS BORN
ON 23-11-1982 AND LOST HER FIGHT
WITH BRAIN CANCER ON 4-12-2001
AGED JUST 19 YEARS.
SHE WAS ALWAYS FULL OF FUN AND
NEVER STOPPED LAUGHING AND
JOKING RIGHT TO THE END, EVEN
THOUGH SHE WAS IN THE MOST
INCREDIBLE PAIN A LOT OF THE TIME.
SHE SPENT HER LAST MONTH IN
ROWCROFT HOSPICE IN TORQUAY
WHERE ALL THE STAFF WERE
FANTASTIC IN LOOKING AFTER HER
LOVE DAD, SHARON HER SISTER
LAURA AND ALL THE REST OF HER
FAMILIES – SHE IS ALWAYS IN OURTHOUGHTS
This box is in memory of my dog Lacey.
She loved her walks on the moors
helping me and my daughter find
She was like my shadow always
following me wherever I went.
Lacey was my loyal friend
and was always there
for me especially during the
difficult times in my life.
Rachael was my niece so I thought
it was right to have the boxes together
I will never forget Lacey.She will always be there in my heart.
