You are never more than a thought away xx By Ann Osborn on 16 Oct 2013

Thinking of you always

Uncle Kevin- you left us this time last year after a brave battle. You are missed as much today as your were a year ago. Your memory is kept alive by your family, who love you so much. Thinking of you today and always x By Sarah, Adam and George on 16 Oct 2013

Such tragic news.....

Jane, you may recall that I was Kevin's deputy when he was Store Manager at Invicta, Dartford. (1984 approx). We certainly shared some long, arduous and difficult days (and nights) particularly in the early days while Kevin was living away from home, before you both moved to Kent. I really am so sorry, in fact devastated to hear the news and can only confirm what others have already said. He worked so hard and deserved so much better. Like others, I've lost not only a much respected old colleague, but a good mate; a chap I always wanted to meet up with again some day - even if only for a natter and a good old cup of 'splosh'. (One of my unfortunate sayings that always seemed to amuse him). Such a pity we lost contact when Kevin went to Plymouth Society. Our thoughts are with you and your children.

Six months today.

Darling Kevin. Today it is 6 months since I lost you. Sometimes it feels as if I only saw you yesterday and sometimes it seems I last saw you a lifetime ago, I love you and think about you every single minute of every single day. I know you are up there sending me strength and I think you would be proud of how I am coping. I keep thinking how you would do things and you are the inspiration behind all my decisions. Keep looking out for me. I find it a comfort that you are locked in my heart forever. Xxxxxx By Jane Chatfield on 16 Apr 2013

New Year 2013

Happy New Year darling. Hope you got the messages on the lanterns last night. As 13 is your lucky number I know this would have been a special year for you. Keep watching over us all and never forget how much you are loved and missed. Hugs and kisses and all my love. Xxx By Jane Chatfield on 01 Jan 2013

Happy New Year

Happy New Year Uncle Kevin- tonight we raise a glass to you, all our love Sarah, Adam and George xoxo

New Year


This time last year we were all together with the Osborns seeing in the New Year, having a wonderful time. It was a party full of your favourite things - red wine, 'picky bits', music and being surrounded by family.

We were so happy at the start of 2012 when you were given such positive news about your health and how your treatment was really starting to work. It was everything we had all hoped for and everything you deserved.

Despite what you deserved and despite your courageous battle and amazing attitude towards life - it wasn't to be. What we wouldn't give to still have you here now...

You are missed more than words could ever say. We miss your laugh, your smile, your (bad) jokes, your stories, your hugs. We miss EVERYTHING about you (I think mum misses your cooking too, haha)!!

The thought of starting a new year without you is very hard to comprehend. We will ALL try to make you proud and we will think of you throughout everything we do.

Love you loads, three kisses!!! Love Soph

Christmas time

Darling Kevin I have been thinking about you every second all through Christmas and wishing so so much you were still here sharing it with us. We always used to say in our Christmas cards to each other 'looking forward to being together over the holiday' although that usually amounted to just two days before we were back to work again! I would give ANYTHING just to have two minutes with you let alone two days. I hope that wherever you are you had a glass (or two!) of red, a game of pool and maybe some of your favourite festive bubble and squeak on Boxing Day! I am trying so hard to keep strong and positive and live life for both of us but I miss you so very much. Love always. Jane xxxx By Jane Chatfield on 30 Dec 2012

A Really good guy

My sincere apologies I could not say good by on your day, you were a great person with a very similar sense of humour to me.

I will never forget you

Kind regards

Robin Rickard and family.

A poem for GUK

I love you as big as the world,

I love you as deep as the sea,

I love you as bright as the sun,

I love you. And I know you love me.

I love you as blue as the sky,

I love you as long as the days,

I love you as high as the mountain top.

I love you in so many ways.

I love you as strong as the wind,

I love you as soft as the dew,

I love you as far as a star,

I love you because you are you!

Lots of Love from George

Smiling when I think of you

Dearest Uncle Kevin. It’s so hard to find the words to say goodbye to you. Somehow it seems whatever I write, it just won't be enough to tell you just how much I love and admire you. I have the sincerest respect for you, you fought so hard and were so brave every step along the way. I could not be prouder to call you my Uncle.

Over the last few years and particularly the last few months, with the lead up to the wedding, I have looked up to, and admired your relationship with Auntie Jane. You loved each other so much, from so young, throughout all the good times and the bad. You told me recently that I am a great mother and wife, which meant the world to me. Like you and Auntie Jane, Adam and I fell in love at a young age. We, like you, have grown up together and are growing older together. It is deeply sad that you will not be growing old together but you will see each other again, we will all see you again, I truly believe that. In the mean time, I will try my hardest to be the best wife and mother I can be and I take comfort in knowing you will be looking out for me and watching over me and my family. I pray now that Adam and I will be blessed to have a life together like you and Auntie Jane did, full of love, laughter and happiness.

You asked me to live life every day and to smile when I think of you and I will do just that Smile

With love, always and forever, Sarah xoxo

Sending all our love.

Our thoughts are with the whole family at this sad time

Lots of love the Carter-Browne family

By Laura Carter-Browne on 24 Oct 2012

Kevin, dearly loved brother-in-law, Uncle and Great Uncle

Even though you were so very ill, you fought so hard and with such courage....we all hoped for a miracle until the very end... you deserved a miracle.

You will never be truly gone from us Kevin, you will live on in your wonderful children and grandchildren.We will talk about you and remember you always, so many many great memories of all the times our families have spent together.

Rest peacefully Kevin

With love from 'The Osborns'
