We would like to honour and remember the Hatters who have touched our lives.

“Those we love remain with us, for love itself lives on
And cherished memories never fade, because a loved one’s gone
Those we love can never be, more than a thought apart
For as long as there is memory, they’ll always live on in our hearts”
