Uncle David,
Leicester Tigers and blueberries will always remind me of you. I remember the story of us going on holiday together in The Lakes when I was very little, and you kept ‘sharing’ my blueberries. I’d happily let you share anytime.
I promise every time I go to watch Tigers, I will make sure I cheer for you too. Sleep tight. All my love Joey xxxx
Since joining the family almost 22 years ago, I have always admired the love, support and guidance you have given to Lawrence and William as they have grown in to the wonderful men they are today. As a father, you couldn’t have been a better role model.
You are missed enormously.
Love John
It’s no coincidence that everyone is remembering your mischievous smile and twinkling eyes, or your kindness, sense of humour and love for your family.
Since you and Kathryn met all those years ago, I have been lucky enough to call you my brother. I have been on the receiving end of your sense of humour many times, like the time you tried to convince me you had a metal plate inserted in your forehead and you proceeded to stick a magnet to your head!! I have also been witness to the huge love and adoration you have for the family you and Kathryn created. That love is immeasurable.
The love we all have for you is evident in the shattering pain we all feel at losing you. Kathryn, Lawrence, Alice, Otto and William are continuing your legacy and will be making you so proud of them all. You live on in them all. Goodman by name, good man by nature.
Love you. See you later xxxx

It feels so strange to even be writing this but you've left a massive hole in our lives leaving so soon. The person I'd always turn to for help with any problem and who would always have a solution. The person who would always have a joke handy to lighten the mood. The person who would walk around the house creating little songs for whatever he was doing at the time. Our lives are so much quieter without you. Life will never be the same. I hope I make you proud.
Love you and miss you always x
My little brother!
Such happy childhood memories. Such mischief we got up to. Always one of us in trouble! You got away with far more than me, your winning smile, blue eyes and chin dimple melted all hearts. Loved by everyone.
I miss you so much xxx
Thank you for all of the love, laughter, fun and cuddles. We will miss you. XXX

My thoughts and love are with you all. I shall miss David, his smile, his fun. His thoughtfulness to others. His life was lived well, he had the love of his family and he gave love.x

Thinking of you and yours Kathryn. I feel so blessed to have spent those hours in the sunshine, reconnecting with you both, the dogs and puppies. David's sense of fun was so infectious and he will be missed by all who's life he touched with his kindness and humour.
