Re: Shirley's Resting Place

Hope all goes well when you meet with Yusuf Trev. As You have posted you have not touched Shirley's resting place and until Yusuf gives permission you won't. I think a headstone and pots for flowers to be placed would be agreeable, and there may be enough left from the remaining 395.
As you posted the bench is on spare ground between two graves, I would think Yusuf will not have a problem with that.

It may be difficult but if you get the chance please convey all our thoughts for Shirley, we are doing this for a much loved member.

Thanks again Trev for all that you are doing.

Thank you very much Diana.Its post's like your's and all the rest on TLF that makes helping people worth while.
I remember years ago when I did a Fire Inspection at an Old Peoples Home,this old lady ask me "Young man why do you do what you do and what's the most pleasurable thing about doing it",my answer was simple,"Helping people who are frightened and helpless and a simple Thank you makes make it all worth while",I would have done that job for nowt really.I really do enjoy helping people and I hope Shirley's looking down and giving me a wink and sayin Thanks Pal.The last week has been very stressful but seeing her grave and bench finished will have been worth it.

Trev.

Re: Shirley's Resting Place

I did know Shirley very well. We used to meet up every Tuesday and called ourselves thr Tuesday Girls. I will never forget her she was so warm and funny with a wicked sense of humour. It was a privilege and honour to have been her friend and she will stay with me for the rest of my life. She touched so many people's lives and gave good advice and help to all she could. She had had such a colourful life and made everyone laugh with the stories she used to tell us all. Only Shirley could have gone though what she went through in life and come out of the end with a smile on her face.
R.I.P Shirley we miss you so much ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

Re: Shirley's Resting Place

Ah Mildrid, I am sure Shirley will still be there smiling on her Tuesday Club gang. I saw a photo on facebook only this Tuesday gone of all Shirley's friends having a meet up, she would be chinking a wee Vodka to you all. Thank you for sharing your special memories of someone I never met, but who I chatted to almost daily on facebook chat, she used to make me laugh too. Her passing was such a shock to us all as the night before she shared a lovely evening out on her balcony with her Yusuf.

Hi TNT123 we met at the cemetery on Monday when you were building the bench, that it's finished I think you should be very proud, a job well done. Hope to meet you again soon.

Re: Shirley's Resting Place

Hi folks.Just an update to keep you posted.Today my Turkish friend and I met with Yusef,Shirley's Husband. Yusef has asked that I convey his gratitude and heart felt thanks for the Bench in Shirley's memory.He was amazed that the Bench was in the shape of an "S" for Shirley and he became quite emotional.
However,when asked about a Headstone he said thank you but no thank you,the headstone is a personal thing that he wishes to do for Shirley,as Turkish custom is such that the grave must not be touched for the first 12 months,when this time has lapsed he intends to have a Headstone and do the grave Turkish style.He asked me to convey his thanks to all the people who loved Shirley and has no objections to anyone visiting her grave .He has requested that no one who visits,places anything other than FLOWERS on her grave.
He has promised to contact me in September through my Turkish friend with details of the Headstone and marble enclosure around the grave,but would have no objections to a contribution from TLF if the members so desired.I will leave this to the members to decide.
Trev.

Re: Shirley's Resting Place

I am so appreciatedl for all that you have done Trev. Also it is good to hear the reason behind Yusuf not wanting to touch Shirley's resting place until a year after her passing as is his culture. It would have been emotional for him and I am so pleased for you that all went well.

As you say it is open to what members think, but in my opinion I am more than happy to provide a contribution from Shirley's fund towards a headstone for Shirley.
Thank you for your update, I have been thinking about you today, as it would have been an emotional meeting for you too.

Re: Shirley's Resting Place

Wow, what a relief Trev for all yours and others hard work to make this happen.
I'm so glad Yusef liked the bench and appreciated the fact that it was something we on TLF felt we wanted to do as a tribute to Shirley.

I'm easy re. the remaining funds, and will be happy to follow the majority vote.

Thanks again.
