our love to you
I shouldn't be posting here today. All of you, shouldn’t be reading this.
Nat was too young and too good, for us to be seeing this today.
But yet, here it is.
It has been an incredible honour to know and love Nat and to know how much her mother and friends loved Nat.
I could write so much about Nat, but no matter how much I write, or how long it is, it wouldn't do her justice.
Nat was so many things to so many people.
A daughter, a co-worker, a friend, a sister, my wife
5 short years ago I met Nat.
I remember she was so nervous because she was trying to set up one of her friends, but she thought I was ok and fortunately for me she didn't let her friend know about me, and our relationship started, but it has been cut short, way too short.
Nat just wanted to be the best wife that she could be, the best daughter the best sister, but most of all she wanted to know the love a mother has for her child, but this dream couldn’t come true because of this disease.
She wanted to change the ideas that foreigners had of Thai women and anyone who has met her will know that she did.
She wanted to work hard, be smarter, try new things, and push herself to achieve goals.
I admired her for her dedication to her work. I admired her dedication to family. She worked and supported her family when others were unable or unwilling. I admired the fight in her, the will not to give in.
But what I admired most was, the way she tried to make others feel ok. Even when the end was in sight her words to me were don’t worry your Mama and Papa will look after me now.
So with my deepest love Nat, I wish you safe travels on this new journey of yours.
I will miss my lovely beautiful Nat, my friend, my wife.
But as I was preparing this farewell, I realised that I didn't want us to just think about what we've lost.
I wanted to find something good that we could hold on to.
So I started thinking about Nat and what I really love about her.
I really love her smile, the giggle she had and how she made me laugh.
Her huge loving, forgiving heart, and how she had the ability to forgive even those who hurt her deeply.
As I said, I could write forever and couldn’t say enough, so, in this moment when it feels like there is none, here’s the good news.
Death may have taken Nat, but it can't take our memories of her.
Those wonderful and perfect and beautiful memories.
Those, thank god, are ours to keep
our love to you
Passionate, powerful, eloquent, sad and uplifting.
I'm so sorry to hear your news and wish you and your family all the best in coming to terms with your loss.
I'm very glad Nat found you as you care deeply for her, and I'm glad you found Nat and so much love. You're right memories are what make us, and we are made better people for having the honour of knowing those rare people who are so selfless.
I don't know you jimmbo but your story touched me deeply and I am truly sorry.

There aren't many things that bring a tear to my eye, but that just did.
If you're offended by any assistance I give, it says far more about you than it does me.
So sorry to hear your news, our condolences to you and all that knew Nat
Beautiful words, so sorry for your loss.
jimmbo, it is our custom in my religion to give condolences and to wish you long life. Our thoughts are with you.
Thinking of you both Jimmbo
Words are not enough. Heartfelt sadness to hear of your loss.
To lose someone that had became your everything must be hard to bare, My thoughts are with you and your extended family at this sad time.
So very sorry to read of your painful loss.

A great tribute, truely spoken. Nat R.I.P.
The World is made up of far more good than bad people but it's always good for the very best to receive a special mention. Jimmbo be proud, stand tall, shoulders back, head up, chest out always whenever you think about your lovely Nat. Happy memories.
So sorry to hear about your loss, take care

So sorry to hear about your loss. You have put it so well and as you say thing of all the good times you have had together. I hope you will be able to move on with your life but it's very difficult. I can say no more than what has already been said by other members. Be strong.
It has been 3 weeks since Nat passed. Thank you for the kind words and responses. I wrote the eulogy and posted because there was no opportunity for me to say or express my feelings as we get to do in the UK at Nats funeral.
lovely words and no words i say could ever replace youre loss ,keep strong
Such lovely and eloquent words. Very very moving. So sorry for your loss.
