Brian Blanthorn: We remember you

This is your second real anniversary, even though you died eight years ago today, 29 February

This is your day

Remembering you is easy

We do it every day

The glass you made reflects you

Striking, unique and different

It sparkles brightly every day

You were a special person

As we all know, you were yourself in every way

You left a glorious legacy behind you

We know that was important to you at the end

You were our dad, brother, husband, uncle, friend

You were frustrating, exasperating, funny, with a wicked sense of humour

We loved you, and always will

Pauline, Jenny, Tara, Oliver, Eilah, Claire, Martin and Malcolm.
