Remembering our lovely chats over many, many years. On Skype when your Dad and Uncle Dave would spend an hour or so many a Saturday talking cars and bikes, with dad helping U Dave as he done car repairs. In between we, your mum and you would chat about normal everyday stuff and past memories. After Skype we changed to Facetime.We were so sad when back in the October time of 2021 when you and Les shared your devastating news with us. The times we chatted till late in the night, either your late or ours! Uncle Dave remembers your shared passion in helping the elderly and unwell folk, having both worked in the caring profession. Throughout your illness you remained cheerful and positive, you spoke so matter of factly about the sickness and unable to eat much that you endured throughout your many treatments. We still have your messages when video chats were not possible. We remember you being concerned about video chats after your hair loss that others would be upset and so you would put a scarf or hat on if ythey were – it was for others sake not yours. Jacqui even through these past tough 2 years whenever we were all on a video call you remained smiling and laughing. The joy your boys Will and Chris (or had we best say William and Christopher!), Tash, Nicole and Amelia brought to you and you to them knew no bounds. Likewise all your family. Now out of pain and suffering and now with loved ones gone before. They will be waiting for you and dad no doubt will be giving those ‘rubbery knees’ a squeeze just as he always did to you girls. We will so miss your smile and chats Jacqui. Love you always and God Bless Auntie Hilary and Uncle Dave XXJune 27, 2023

Deepest sympathy to all family members
Rest in peace beautiful girl,June 26, 2023
I’m going to miss that beautiful smile.
Your past workmate from BHS.
Sharyne. Fly high with the Angels.
He only takes the best.
God saw you getting tired,
And a cure was not to be ;
So he put his arms around you,
And Whispered, Come to me”
With tearful eyes we watched you,June 26, 2023
And saw you pass away,
Although we love you dearly,
We could not make you stay,
A golden heart stopped beating,
Hard working hands to rest,
God broke our hearts to prove to us,
He only takes the best.
Rest in peace Jacqueline Blanchard.
I’m going to miss you so much.
Auntie Jacqui will forever be in our hearts and minds, she will be dearly missed as much as she was deeply loved.
Our love and thoughts are with her mother, sisters, sons, daughter in laws and granddaughter.
