    Bobby G Murray

    09/12/2011 – 21/03/2014

    Bobby G is my middle child. He has a big sister Erin nine and little brother Archie two. There was 54 weeks between Bobby G and Archie J, Irish twins people would say. Bobby G loved him and always showed it. He was the same with Erin he would run to greet her with a big hello and hugs everyday when she returned from school. Robyn Bobby Gs godmother collected him and Erin for school every morning along with her sister Brogan. Brogan would have a story most days of the adventures they had on the way to school. Robyn would also collect him after and we would meet in Granny Boynes for dinner, some days they would stop at the shop for a sausage. . Bobby G still demanding his dinner when he arrived home. He loved his food, tayto bread and curry night 🙂 Thursday! He would have beef curry mixed veg rice and prawn crackers.. Robyn couldn’t go far without Bobby G following or crying after her shes his godmother and best pal, his second mammy. He was the same with his grandda Boyne. Granddad took Bobby G the park and sat on the floor for hrs playing together. Bobby G really was a very special little boy, he was the man of the house. He knew our routine and by god he made us stick to it lol after their tea it was splash time. Bobby g would jump up from an empty plate and say Archie splash splash! We would sing two little ducks went swimming one day over the hill and far away mammy duck said quack quack quack quack and two little duckys went splash splash splash! Then I would throw the two ducks into the water to make a splash both boys loved this.. Bobby G loved being free and stripped off as soon as we got home or got to our Grannys 🙂 one day i actually had to bring him to Granny Boynes with just a house coat, he had eczema, really bad sometimes so he would over heat at times. This never took from his good form and big smiles. He was so good, he would ask for his creams and applied them perfectly. . He loved to sing and dance. Sang all the songs from hi5 and he loved Peppa pig. He also loved giving a hand the Hoover was his favourite thing to play with!

    Our summer routine was very different from winter.. we have a mobile home in bettystown. This is where you’d find us on those fine summer days! We had loads of adventures. The site was an adventure in its self Bobby G kept us on our toes, we had loads of fun on Bettystowns beach and in funtasia. Its a very special place where we spent lots of family time and made loads of memories!

    Bobby G called me Ailbhe this made me laugh 🙂 we really we’re best friends. He did however know who I was lol and called me mammy when he was tired or if he had hurt himself so really only when he needed me xxXx this makes my heart melt! When I think about our time together I really feel lucky he chose me to be his mammy and to be apart of our family! He had a gift he lit up every room and made everyone feel good about themselves thats pretty special for a two yr old :)… I will carry him in my heart and on my lips when I speak his name everyday until we are reunited! I love you my biggest baby boy Bobby G xxXx

    I sit to write the poem and
    as I begin to cry
    These words whisper through my ears
    It’s Sean your little boy.
    Please try not question God,
    Don’t think he’s unkind,
    Don’t think he sent me to you
    And then changed his mind.
    You see I’m a special child
    And I’m needed up above
    I am the special gift you gave him
    The product of your love
    So please Daddy don’t look sad
    Mammy don’t you cry,
    I will always be beside you
    Lots of love from your little boy.

    Our beloved precious Carla,
    you were sent to us by God above,
    to teach us what is true and pure love.

    We got to know you very well over the last 5 weeks
    and feel so privileged to have been chosen as your parents.
    Carla ,you have shown us, your gentle soul,
    which we could see clearly,
    beaming from your sparkling beautiful eyes.
    Now that you have shown us what is true love,
    and how much happiness it can bring.

    It is sadly time for you to go back to the angels ,
    your job is done here .
    Oh Carla, what a good job you have done. So good you have left us,
    and all your friends and family, utterly heartbroken.
    But its ok baby girl, its not your job to worry about us.
    We are your loving parents and we want you to fly free.

    Fly high up ,through these little beams of light ,in the parting clouds
    and continue to teach and guide us ,
    reminding us you are with us
    with every been of light, of your love.
    Good night baby girl,
    Sleep tight and let your love shine bright.

    My precious little boy,

    When you were born you captured everyone’s hearts – your Grandad would say that you had an old head- your eyes had a look that you had been here before. You were our gift and treasure; and your big brother, Daniel loved you (loves you) beyond measure – he did nothing but talk of you and when he came home from school each day would rush to see you and give you kisses. When you left us our hearts broke, fractured and the scars will forever remain. We miss you everyday; but you will always be my boy, a baby brother and now a big brother (to Lucie who just turned 3 and goes to see you and loves you), a nephew, grandson and cousin. You left your footprint and your smile and the twinkle in your eyes. We love you to the moon and back forever…

    Mum xx

    He was only 14 weeks gestation but we got to hold his perfectly formed body, to see his fingers and toes.
    I will never forget holding my son in those hours before he was cremated. The Coombe hospital were great and we had a naming ceremony for him.
    I love you son. Gone but never forgotten
