    Mrs Nicky Murrie

    In memory of my sister who was taken from us far to soon, aged 42. She passed away 4 weeks after contracting Covid-19 on 2 December 2020. The heartbreak of not being able to see her before she passed away was devastating to all the family. She was a Mother, Daughter, Wife, Sister and Niece. She was such an amazing person and she is missed every day. I miss you so much and she leaves a massive whole in all the hearts of her family and friends from Eccleshall.

    Loving memories of a wonderful husband

    Forever in my heart xxx 


    My 100 year old mother was in a care home when older people with Covid were sent to care homes to free up hospital beds. I was petrified that my mother would catch it and it would end her life.


    We have all suffered, lets pull together, moving forward. Unfortunately when the Covid arrived it was always going to take lives. I, like many others, lost friends, thankfully my family survived. I, six months in, had a shut down with my lower back and body causing me to being laid up. It was a very uncomfortable struggle for a month to six weeks. Was it Covid, I am not sure as I did not seek medical advice as resources were stretched and felt I did not want to impose. I have since had the jabs and booster but have had two bouts of being unwell for two to three weeks. I fear we are not done so lets help each other support all the services involved showing kindness to one and all!

    Mr John Donnelly

    In memory of Dad, Grandad, Great Grandad. You were taken from us too quickly 20 October 2020. You were always there for all of us and lived life to the full. You were interested and supportive of everything we did and we all miss you more than you will ever know.
