    To Dear Fred, May and Hanna,

    I can't believe it's been 8 years since we lost you, it doesn't seem right that you died on our wedding day. The fact you never saw your grandchildren will haunt us forever. Hanna, you never got to walk down the aisle like I did, and see the one you love waiting for you at...

    So he was laid to rest on Saturday.

    That car crash left him looking almost unrecognisable. I'm glad I didn't view the images - I wouldn't want to remember that. Another soul departed. Young and free. Gone but never forgotten. R.I.P. Cuzzo :-(
