As funeral directors we see the enormous impact that the work of the dedicated team at Havens has on families. For us ‘Hares About Town’ is a fantastic opportunity to support Havens and raise awareness of the amazing work that they do every single day.
Having to deal with any bereavement can be difficult. But the support given to the patient and their families at Havens means those faced with difficult outcomes can spend crucial time with their loved ones in a relaxed and friendly environment.
Many people feel that hospices are only about caring for the dying, but this couldn’t be further from the truth. Havens have many outreach programs and community projects that offer so much support to our local community and those in need. At Stibbards we feel they should get the recognition they deserve for these.
‘Somewhere Over the Rainbow’ is often played at funerals to symbolise the grief process. And as part of the ‘Hares About Town’ event, S Stibbards & Sons Ltd are inviting you to leave your fondest memories of a loved one. Share yours below.
It's been exactly 10 years this year since you passed, 21st June, the first day of summer and the longest day of the year - and didn't we know it! You weren't just my nana, you were my best friend and mother figure too.
You taught me rights from wrongs, educated me and guided me onto the right path, which made me who I am today. Now at 25, I wish you could see the woman I have become and what I have achieved, but I know deep down you watch over me every single day. The robin who comes to see me every morning on my windowsill, the feathers on the floor where I walk. You're in my memory today and every day Nana B X
My mum wasn't just my mum but my best friend. I will forever treasure the many happy memories that we shared together & all of the times that we had a good old laugh!
There are so many things that I say & do that I'm always reminded of you & I couldn't be prouder of having you as my mum. Thank you for making me who I am today xx
Not a day goes by when I don't think how lucky we were to have a Dad like you, we're still getting by on the lessons you taught us even after 16 years without you. Miss you Dad. x
Forever our beautiful baby boy. Thank you for sending us your rainbow brother Baby Charlie, we miss you so much. X
I will always love you and miss you more each day, not a day goes by that I don't think of you. I know you're looking down at us and making sure we are safe.
You would be on your way to the beach by now, with lots of chocolate hidden in your bag so Nan couldn't see, but you would always get caught sneaking out the house.
Love you lots xx
Forever loved and missed and you leave such a gaping whole of personality, spontaneity and completely crazy chaos and I miss it all so so much. Since you left us five years ago you have been made a nanny five times, its so hard to express just how our little ones are missing out on such an amazing woman. Thinking of you always ❤
We lost my mum 4 months ago due to heart/covid, was the biggest shock to our family.
She was my bestfriend and during these beautiful summer months we both would be driving round southend or Essex singing our favourite songs with the windows down so everyone could hear. I miss her so much I think of her everyday and both her grandchildren miss her very dearly.
We lost you when you were only 13 years old, and life hasn't been the same ever since. You're in my memory today and every day. I miss you so much!
I remember the silly times of dancing around the living room to songs on MTV and attempting to learn every lyric. I'm pretty certain we weren't very good at that! I will never forget you getting lost in the National History Museum and everyone frantically searching for you. (Still makes me giggle now). The daily hour long phone calls and getting told of by our parents for racking up the phone bill!
Amy, you were my best friend and you taught me so much without even realising it. I wish we had grown up together, side by side but I know you're looking down on me and always guiding me. Thank you for coming into my life and always showing me the rainbow when I need it most. You were taken from us too soon. Thinking of you always.
