  • BANNEAR (Dean):


    I'm lost without you, my biggest (and often times, my only) supporter.

    The pain left you with no other choice but to dig deep, and I can only imagine the strength it must have taken to stay with us for as long as you did.

    In knowing this, I can only express my gratitude for having the opportunity to meet - befriend - and share a home and a life with you, the privilege to grow with you, and above all, how sincerely blessed I have been - for the time you generously gave me, even after you were given the news that you had so little to spare.

    I will never love another with the innocence and lack of fear with which I loved you.

    You broke my heart and and I broke yours, neither of us healed fully but we gained in mutual respect and an even deeper connection, what we lost in love of a romantic nature.

    There is a wound straight through the center of my world that I know cannot be healed, until we find each other again.

    You have been a school mate, my first real crush, my lover and partner, my forever guy, at times we battled but mostly we loved.

    You were my biggest, but most gentle critic at the same time as my most loyal fan.

    The light I could always follow to safety, no matter how dark the weather.

    A true and sweet friend, a guardian angel in a world that has always been far too big for someone as small as me.

    Above all though, you've been my best friend and the most enlightening, encouraging teacher I've ever had the privilege of learning from.

    I was not prepared for this feeling at all and can only wish there was a way to hear your beautiful contagious laugh or see you smile one last time, just to know you are ok... and perhaps, to tell you that I am not.

    You will be in my thoughts until the day I stop having thoughts at all.

    You will be in my heart forever and always.....and Always and Forever.


    Eyes Open

    No Fear

    Rest now Nino - you are missed, and loved more than could ever be expressed with words.

    You will - now until always - be "Forever Young" to me and they really were, some of the most "Wonderful Days".

    Don’t think of him as gone away,

    his journey’s just begun,

    life holds so many facets

    this earth is only one.

    Just think of him as resting

    from the sorrows and the tears

    in a place of warmth and comfort

    where there are no days and years.

    Think how he must be wishing

    that we could know today

    how nothing but our sadness

    can really pass away.

    And think of him as living

    in the hearts of those he touched…

    for nothing loved is ever lost

    and he was loved so much.

    Beloved son of Chris and Keith, brother to Daniel and proud father to Talon.

    Rest in Paradise Dean - what a battle you tried so hard to fight.

    Forever in our thoughts,

    Greg and Chris Crofts

    “Perhaps they are not stars, but rather openings in Heaven where the love of our lost ones pours through and shines down upon us to let us know they are happy.”

    Rest peacefully Dean, no more suffering and no more pain, living forever in our hearts, until we meet again.

    It was an honour to be a part of your life.

    Love Stace, Jaxen and Caprice.

    To the best dad in the world.

    Remembering you is easy,

    Because I do it every day,

    Missing you is the heartache

    That will never go away.

    I love you and miss you so much dad. I promise to look after Chrissy Nanny.

    Love, your son Talon.
