In Loving Memory Of A Dear Husband and Father.
There is

a corner in our hearts
That is kept aside for you, as long life and memories last
We will always remember you

Sadly missed by your wife, Frances and son, Adrian.

Vanessa Bella Maria Plata
Departed: December 24, 2008

It’s 14 years since you’ve been gone
God looked around his garden
And saw an empty space
Then he looked down from
heaven and saw your face
So he stretched out his hand
and said: “Fear not my Child, make haste, for today you will be spending Christmas with Jesus at my place”
We have only your memory,
Dear Vanessa to remember
The whole life through
As this healing and pain continue.
We’ll treasure the image of you always

Mom Frances and stepdad, Errol and brother, Adrian
