Hi all I hope you all had a good week. It was an emotional one for us this week, saying farewell to someone close to us. Mark Challoner, one of my husband's brothers. However he will never be forgotten ever and we are going to make sure our son always remembers his Uncle Bluto, as there was a bond there that I have never seen between a toddler and an Uncle.
Thank you so much Blutes, for what you bought into our lives, for making me feel welcome into your home and life, I am so going to miss you, just wished I had known you for a lot longer.
I am not going to put rest in peace because I don't feel that it is appropriate for the type of person Mark is. He is an adventurer and enjoyed doing so many things and I know he will watch over Henry, my husband and the rest of the family. I hope that whatever pain he may have felt has gone and that he is a free spirit now who is always going to be in our hearts, until we meet again some day.
I put this little tribute together of so many great time spent together with The Blutes (Mark) and so happy that I got to know Mark for the great, fantastic guy he is and what he bought into our lives. His laugh and smile is so memorable that it is going to be hard to think I am never going to see his beaming smile again.
It is also my husband and I's 10 year wedding anniversary today. He let me sleep in today and cooked a lovely breakfast.
Happy Anniversary my love and more great years to come.
Below is a song by George Benson, Never Gonna Change My Love for you.
This was one of the songs played on Tuesday at Bluto's funeral and really sums up how I feel about everyone in my life right now.
Many thanks for reading,
