Memorial website in the memory of your loved one



This memorial website was created in the memory of our loved one, David Parr who was born in United Kingdom on July 20, 1960 and passed away on May 13, 2006 at the age of 45. We will remember him forever. David was our eldest child of four. David was diagnosed with cancer in  March 2003 in which he had his stomach removed & after the operation we were told that david also had motor neurone. David is a father of four children James, Victoria,  Lewis & David & also left behind his wife Jayne. 
David loved his wife & children very much.



To My Darling Husband and loving Father, You are with us every single day,
It Broke our Hearts to loose you, But You did not go alone, For part of us went with you, when god called you to his home.

WE ALL LOVE YOU

 


 


 


 
















           

  



Dave was born in st marys hospital on 20th july 1960 to Dave and Sandy Parr. He started Judo at eight years old and that was the start of his kung fu kicking.

When he was 14 he worked with his uncle ken to save for a horse, which he named Star.

His love for animals was so great that he managed to turn his parents garden into a farmyard.
At 17 Dave met Jayne in the local grove club. He asked her out with a promise of a holiday 




              
        






May you be blessed by the good memories
that warm your heart & put a smile on your
face when you think of your angel


to cornwall, which she never got. But they fell in love and went on to marry at 19. They had their first born son James and then their daughter Victoria 20 months later. Dave and Jayne both thought their family was complete but five years later they had two more sons, Lewis and David, within thirteen months.
Dave lived for his wife and children, and the children nicknamed their dad "Del Boy" because every sunday he would take them carbooting where Dave was always looking for a bargain or two.

Dave and Jayne's life was turned upside down four years ago when he was first diagnosed with cancer. But he went into remission with this and all the family thought he was on the mend. But unfortunately eighteen months later Dave was diagnosed with Motoneuron Disease and Jayne and the children knew that soon one day they would lose the husband and dad they loved so much. Through all his illness he shone through making sure he celebrated his silver wedding anniversary last year with his wife, children and all his friends. 

Dave made a lot of friends through work, socialising, racing pigeons and playing darts. He was a very popular character and everywhere he went people knew him.
Dave will be missed by so many people especially his wife Jayne and all his family.

In tears I saw you sinking,
I watched you fade away.
You suffered much in silence,
you fought so hard to stay.
You faced your task with courage.
Your spirit did not bend,
and still you kept on fighting until the very end.
God saw you getting tired.
When a cure was not to be.
So he put his arms around you and whispered "come to me".
So when I saw you sleeping So peaceful, free from pain.
I could not wish you back to suffer that again
 
SunnyRaining Hearts days seem to hurt the most  Dave

Bereaved Parents Wish List

 I wish my child hadn't died. I wish  I had him back.
Y

I wish you wouldn't be afraid to speak my child's name. My child
lived and was very important to me. I need to hear that he was
important to you also.
Y
If I cry and get emotional when you talk about my child, I wish you
knew that it isn't because you have hurt me. My child's death is the
cause of my tears. You have talked about my child and you have
allowed me to share my grief. I thank you for both.
Y
Being a bereaved parent is not contagious, so I wish you wouldn't
shy away from me. I need you now more than ever.
Y
I need diversions, so I do want to hear about you, but I also want
you to hear about me. I might be sad and I might cry, but I wish you
would let me talk about my child; my favorite topic of the day
Y
I know that you think of and pray for me often. I also know that my
child's death pains you too. I wish you would let me know these
things through a phone call, a card or note, or a real big hug.
Y
I wish you wouldn't expect my grief to be over. These first years
are traumatic for me, but I wish you could understand that my grief
will never be over. I will suffer the death of my child until the day
I die.
Y
I am working hard in my recovery, but I wish you could understand
that I will never fully recover. I will always miss my child and I
will always grieve that he is dead.
Y
I wish you wouldn't expect me "not to think about it" or "be
happy". Neither will happen for a very long time, so don't frustrate
yourself.
Y
I don't want to have a "Pity party", but I do wish you would let me
grieve. I must hurt before I can heal.
Y
I wish you understood how my life has shattered. I know it is
miserable for you to be around me when I'm feeling miserable. Please
be as patient with me as I am with you.
Y
When I say, "I'm doing okay", I wish you could understand that I
don't "feel" okay and that I struggle daily.
Y
I wish you knew that all of the grief reactions I'm having are very
normal. Depression, anger, hopelessness and overwhelming sadness are
all to be expected. So please excuse me when I'm quiet and withdrawn
or irritable and cranky.
Y
Your advice to "take it one day at a time" is excellent advice.
However, a day is too much and too fast for me right now. I wish you
could understand that I'm doing good to handle an hour at a time.
Y
Please excuse me if I seem rude, certainly not my intent. Sometimes
the world around me goes too fast and I need to get off. When I walk
away, I wish you would let me find a quiet place to spend time alone.
I wish you understood that grief changes people. When my child died,
a big part of me died with him. I am not the same person I was
before my child died and I will never be that person again.
Y
I wish very much that you could understand ~ understand my loss and
my grief. But, I pray daily that you will never understand.
YYYYYYYYYYYY

                    

                          DAD'S GRIEF 

      It must be very difficult,
     To be a man in grief,
     since men don't cry and men are strong,
     No tears can bring relief.
   
     It must be very difficult,
     To stand up to the test

     And take calls and visitors,
     So she can get some rest.
  
    They always ask if she's alright,
    And what she's going through
    But seldom take his hand and ask,
   "My friend,but how are you?"
  
    He hears her crying in the night,
    And thinks his heart will break
    He dries her tears and comforts her,
    But stays strong for her sake.
  
    It must be very difficult,
    To start each day anew
    And try to be so very brave..
    He lost his Son too
.
