This is Spanna's final resting place, my heart still aches so much for him, he was such a special boy, full of character and so gentle. He really was the best. I have made this page to honour Spanna's memory, to help heal my own pain and also and very importantly to show others that making a special place for our loved ones can help us to heal, and keeps a little of our lost ones with us. At every birthday and anniversary of Spanna's passing, together with Christmas, he and his garden is always remembered in a special way. I always buy some plants or flowers as a small token of my thanks to the joy he brought us, and to celebrate his life. It is wonderful to see the plants changing with the seasons, watching them grow.
This summer I had intended to have different flowers in Spanna's garden compared to last summer, however, nature had it's own mind and the Nasturtiums that I planted last year have sprung up again. I will leave them now as nature intended and plant something different later.
I put bells and a fairy in Spanna's garden this year.
This is the candle I lit for Spanna.
It is now 3 years since Spanna's passing, it is sometimes hard to believe that the time has gone. His garden has grown and changed a lot during this time. I placed the tub of forget me knots in his garden and planted some peaceful looking white flowers, I think they are called Margarittes. I am not a great gardener and forget the names sorry.
Christmas Eve 2003
I have placed a snow covered decorative Chirstmas tree in Spanna's garden together with some fairies and bells. It looks very pretty. I still miss Spanna very much, but it is comforting having him so close
Sadly on 1st September 2013 our lovely boy Reggie passed away, this was very sudden and was not expected as he had been very well right up to the night before. I am currently working on a memorial page for him. He joins Spanna in the memorial garden.
29/09/13 - The plants are now growing and changing, a beautiful reminder of my special boys.
