  8. To my Darling fiancee Dale,
    My forever partner for the last 11 years.
    From the day we met, it was love at 1st sight, the sparks ignited on our 1st dance where we only had eyes for each other. From there our love grew stronger. I will never forget the day you asked me to marry you & l said YES. We were to be together for the rest of our lives. But it was cut short.
    You didn’t want me to leave your side, l stayed with you day and night for your last 11 nights.l was there for you with your Dear sister Claire, when you took your last breath and left us.
    You will be forever in our hearts.
    A HUGE thankyou to all the amazing DRs, nursing staff, kitchen and volunteers at Kalkee Nangatta, you alway went above and beyond.
    Thankyou for all your love and care to my beautiful Dale(Richard).
    Dale/poppy Dale you will be forever loved and missed by your friends,family & country music group friends.
    “The love we shared for each other will never be broken, not now, not ever.
    I love you to the Moon and back, Don’t forget To save the last dance for me”.
    Love your Girl Glenda XX
