BROWN – Janet Nicolson MacLean, passed away February 28, 2011.
Mum’s room is empty, she’s moved away,
She departed this life and has gone to stay,
There is no struggle, but with great ease,
She closed her eyes and took her leave.
– The Brown family, home and away.
In my rose garden of memories,
I see you standing there,
An angel in disguise,
Who taught me how to care
Miss you, Granny.
– From the grandchildren, home and away.

DOCHERTY – In loving memory of my son, John Anthony Docherty, who died February 26, 2018.
Of all the special gifts in life,
However great or small,
To have you as my son,
Was the greatest gift of all.
A special time,
A special face,
A special son,
I cannot replace.
With an aching heart,
I whisper low,
I miss you son,
And I love you so.
You will never walk alone.
– Love, your heartbroken Mum xxx.
DOCHERTY – In loving memory of my brother, John Anthony Docherty, who died February 26, 2018.

And you were always there to catch me when I’d fall.
In a world where heroes come and go,
Well God just took the only one I know.
– Love you wee sis KD xxx.
