I am a daughter of one of Dougie's pals and have not asked for Douglas' family permission to make this, i would if i could but i have no contact with them and my father only really new Dougie. If anybody knows of his family could you please tell them about this and let me know if they are ok with me making this. If not i will take it down, i hope the family don't mind... I just want people to remember Dougie and share their thoughts...
Douglas 'Dougie' Bryson was on holiday in Gran Caneria with four of his closest friends, when a week into the holiday, Dougie went on a pleasure cruise and went for a swim. Although a stong man and a good swimmer, Dougie came into trouble when currents pulled him further away from the shore.
Unfortuantly by the time help arrived Dougie had died due to drowning.
Dougie left behind his daughter Chloe who was just 12 at the time. Chloe chose what song was to be played at Dougie's funeral, she chose Ronan Keating's If tomorrow never comes. A beautiful song with the true title. Everybody just wishes they could see Dougie again to tell him what an impact he made in people lives and now how much a void is in place now he is gone.
God does really choose the best, and boy was Dougie a toppa!! I was 17 when Dougie died and i was gutted, still am...every girl fancied him like mad. Who can blame us, he was gorgeous and beefed up with a lush tan.
All we have left are memories now, please do share some of your thoughts and memories with me.
It’s lonely here without you.
We miss you more each day.
For life is not the same for us
Since you were called away.
God Bless Douglas.
Lots of love and healing thoughts to your lovely family.
To all my GTS friends,
Sorry for the lack of tributes and the lighting of candles recently. I’m afraid things haven’t been too good for the last couple of weeks I have done nothing but cry just recently. I haven’t had access to the Internet since 13th December thanks to BT! and in fact I have had to borrow my Son’s computer to send this. Last week I had to go for an assessment with regards to my job because of the emotional state I am now in as a result of the taking of Rebecca’s life. For the last week I have had a really nasty flu virus which has really wiped me out, I have hardly been able to walk round, and then yesterday when I got our local paper, they were doing a review of the past year’s events and they had done an article on the sentencing of the monster who murdered my poor Rebecca and going on about how vicious it was and how he was found guilty of torture. As you can imagine, it brought back lots of very upsetting memories. So all in all, I’ve been in a bit of a state.
I send all my loving and healing thoughts to you all at this very emotional time of the year and of course all my love to your special angels in heaven. It is such a very difficult time to get through. Although we know they are always with us, we still miss their physical presence don’t we? I just can’t wait for the 2nd January to come when it will all be over.
Thank you for all the lovely things you continue to put on Rebecca’s site – the tributes, the candles and the lovely pictures and presents. They all mean the world to me and I know they will to Rebecca.
I cannot express in words how much this site has helped me. Being in touch with people who genuinely know what I feel like and who genuinely care has made such a difference to me and I would like to thank you all for your friendship, support and your love and hope and pray that somehow things will get better for each and every one of us.
THINKING OF YOU
When someone is taken from us,
It often seems unreal.
And sometimes it is hard to express
the sympathy we feel
Please know you are being thought of
in the grief that you now bear.
And that there are others all around
who in your sorrow share.
Lots of love as always to Douglas' family.
Our dearest darling Douglas,
How can we find the words to say
To tell of how we miss you,
Throughout every single day.
We miss our little chats –
The way you’d listen to us moan.
And how you always cheered us up
Whenever you would phone.
Living life without you,
Is so very hard to bear.
And we’d give all we have to waken
And to see you standing there.
i was there on the boat that day in gran canaria, and although we had only known him a few hours i have never and will never forget him! my prayers have been with his family and friends all these years, goodnight god bless dougie xxx love kayleigh (1 of the scouser girls)
DRY YOUR TEARS
Please dry your tears and laugh again.
Let go your hurt, release your pain.
Accept that my time on earth was complete.
My lessons all learned, some bitter, some sweet.
Envisage the me who was healthy and strong.
Don’t hold on to the memory of where it went wrong.
Know that the place where I am feels so right;
I’m surrounded by love and bathed in white light.
Don’t cling to the heartache and think I’m afar
For I stand by your side, wherever you are.
In your joy and your sorrow every day
I’m there with my love, just one thought away.
Step into the sunshine, come out of the rain.
For me dry your tears.
For me laugh again.
If roses grown in heaven
Lord, please pick a bunch for me.
Place them in Douglas’s arms
and tell him they’re from me.
Tell him that we love and miss him
and when he turns to smile,
Place a kiss upon his cheek
and hold him for a while.
Remembering him is easy,
we do it every day.
But there’s an aching in our hearts
that will never go away.
Hope you are well and managing to cope.
One of Rebecca's loves was writing and reading poetry. As it is National Poetry day today, I just wanted to share with you one of her poems that she wrote when she was 8 years old. Her Teacher asked the class to write a poem about a part of their body:-
On our bodies there are two layers of skin,
One layer is fat and one layer is thin.
Out skin starts to stretch when our bones start to grow
And goosepimples come when the wind starts to blow.
Some skin is yellow, some skin is white,
Some skin is dark and some skin is light.
Our nails are a skin, a special kind too.
I have got them and so have you.
But it doesn't really matter what colour your skin;
It's not what's on the outside but what is within.
Lots of love.
