From Mrs. Moira Scarborough

We are remembering my Grandad. An amazing trombone player in his day as well as a terrifically talented joiner. My Grandad was like a built in best friend. So funny, his smile and laugh just lit up the entire room. And I would always feel safe and secure whenever he was near, he just had a calming presence. He always reassured you that you would be fine and give you a big squeeze and you would instantly feel better. My grandad was so determined, this showed when he had a stroke when I was younger and he had to learn how to read, write and speak again and he did. He passed away two years ago now from falling on a rainy day and after all he had achieved recovering from those traumas, it left such a hole in our lives for him to be suddenly taken when he was so healthy. Our lives are definitely different without him as he was such a light and a joy. Everyone who met him says the same, he was just a force of nature. The best husband, father and grandad in the world.
We are also remembering my Granny (Grandad’s wife) unfortunately she passed when I was a baby so I didn’t get much time with her, which really upsets me but when I hear all the wonderful and also funny stories about her I truly feel like I know her so well. She was so kind, so creative, also a force of nature. She was very determined, she ran a restaurant whilst taking care of her family and just had so many feathers to her cap! She had an eye for detail. I wish I could have spent years on end with her, going around antique shops which she so dearly loved. She was a treasured wife, mother and Granny.
We are also remembering my Auntie Bridget. When my granny passed away Auntie Bridget sort of took on the role of Granny duties. And to this day , I can say she truly shaped who I am. She was so kind, so delicate, always fair. Auntie Bridget loved church and keeping her rosary beads close to her (which is something I like to do now because of her), everything in her home was perfect and beautiful. Some of the best memories of my childhood are school holidays at my Auntie Bridget’s. And walking through her front door and getting a whiff of her homemade chicken soup that she was cooking. Everyone who knew her, held a special place in their hearts for Auntie Bridget and that’s a fact. We miss her everyday.

And finally we are remembering my Granny Flynn (Auntie Bridget’s sister and my Mums Granny) she too passed when I was baby so I don’t have any memories with her and I so wish I did because of the stories I hear she was such a kind and wonderful person to know. I have one picture of her holding me when I was just born, I’m asleep in her lap and she is looking down at me just like an angel and she is so very gently holding my tiny hand with the tips of her fingers, the picture is so beautiful and special because although I never knew her that picture shows how much she loved me and how many memories we would have made together , the memories would have been wonderful. My mum describes her as so elegant and very much “a lady” and she was a huge part of my mum’s growing up, almost everyday they would see her, she was like a “second mum”. It just shows how treasured she was.

Lyn Alcock

From Mr. Gary Alcock

Lyn and I didn't meet until our mid-40s and it turned out we had less than 8 years together, 4 of which were in the shadow of cancer until she passed away in November 2016. But in those 8 years she made me the happiest man in the world. We were married in 2011, just over a year before her diagnosis after which we still made the most of the time we had remaining. She never complained, never sought pity and a lot of people didn't even realise her situation until the last months when she had to give up work. The St Barnabus Hospice At Home team were the greatest source of help and support in that final period, and the day centre were too before and, for me, after that. I'll never be able to thank them enough.

Peggy Hollands

From Miss Daisy Allen

My grandma collected on behalf of St Barnabas for many years prior to her sad passing. I spent the majority of my Christmas’s with her, sharing the festive day which normally ended with some games of scrabble, of course, she always won! In honour of all the work she did to help St Barnabas, I want to carry on her legacy by supporting this charity which was very close to her heart.

Stewart Bristow

From Mrs ruth bristow

Stewart was a lovely man and at this time of the year he would be getting his Santa suit ready for a busy month ahead with visits to care homes, schools, playgroups, toy library also private visits to homes without dad as he would be serving abroad! He was. Proud Freeman of Lincoln, always wearing his gown with pride! Sadly missed by his family but always in our hearts❤️

Doug Johnson & Ethel Johnson

From Mrs. Pauline Ventress

Gordon Holman

From Miss Elisabeth Holman

I have so many memories of my wonderful Grandad, but one of my absolute favourites was when I took him to the hospital for an appointment earlier this year. When we got there I got to wheel him around in a wheelchair which he found absolutely hilarious as I was so scared of pushing him into a wall or a door frame! He even joked as we were leaving about me passing my wheelchair pushing license – making a joke about me not passing my driving test yet! But this is one of my favourite memories because it was the first time I had seen my Grandad genuinely smile for a very long time.

Dave Nottingham & Karen Hirst

From Mrs. Beverley Carmichael

Christmas is never the same again after a loved one dies but you learn to be grateful for the happy memories and to look for the good in every day.
Dave and Karen, you are both loved so very much.
