IN MEMORIAMS
MACDOUGALL – In loving memory of my dear husband, Duncan, who was tragically taken from me on January 18, 2018.
I have lost my soul’s companion,
A life linked with my own;
And day by day I miss you more,
As I walk through life alone.
– Love you, always and forever, Dawn.
MACDOUGALL – In loving memory of our dad, Duncan, who was tragically taken from us on January 18, 2018.
We think of you with love today,
But that is nothing new.
We thought about you yesterday,
And days before that too.
We think of you in silence,
We often speak your name.
Now all we have is memories,
And your picture in a frame.
Your memory is our keepsake,
With which we’ll never part.
God has you in his keeping,
We have you in our heart.
– Lots of love, your boys, John and Campbell.
MACDOUGALL – In memory of our dearly loved son, Duncan, who is in our thoughts each and every day, tragically taken from us on January 18, 2018.
Remembering you is easy,
We do it every day,
But missing you is a heartache,
That never goes away.
– Mum and Dad.
MACDOUGALL – In memory of Duncan, a much loved brother, brother-in-law and uncle, who tragically lost his life aboard the Nancy Glen, on January 18, 2018.
Our family chain is broken and nothing seems the same…
– Alison, Stephen, Ella and Jack.
You’re the brother I’ve adored since I was small, and for me the day you left us is the saddest time of all.
Love and miss you Duncs, so so much.
– A x.
MACDOUGALL – Treasured memories of our son-in-law, Duncan, taken from us, as the result of a tragic accident, on January 18, 2018.
The blow was great, the shock severe,
We little thought his death was near,
Only those that have lost can tell,
The sorrow of parting without farewell.
Loved and remembered always.
– Lachie and Moira.
MACDOUGALL – Duncan, taken too soon, on January 18, 2018, much loved cousin and nephew.
Never more than a thought away.
Loved and remembered every day.

Though absent, Mum, you are always near,
Still loved, still missed, still very dear.
Sorely missed.
