The Memorial Grove for:


Robbie Barr


1985 - 2007

TAKE ME TO SOME HIGH PLACE OF HEATHER, ROCK AND LEY
SCATTER MY DUST AND ASHES, FEED ME TO THE WIND
SO THAT I WILL BE PART OF ALL YOU SEE, THE AIR YOU ARE BREATHING
I'LL BE PART OF THE CURLEW'S CRY AND SOARING EAGLE
THE BLOOMING WARD AND SUNDEW HUNG WITH DIAMONDS
I'LL BE RIDING THE GENTLE WIND THAT BLOWS THROUGH YOUR HAIR
REMINDING YOU HOW WE SHARED
THE JOY OF LIVING.

Dedications:


Robbie,
This donation is from the money raised at the memorial games we play every Easter Sunday. Thirty boys will be playing again this year (2010) and remembering the times we trained and played together.
This donation comes from all who attend the games in your memory, to give something back to a cause we know you felt so strongly for.
You are greatly missed,
Murrayfield Wanderers and Corstorphine players/ex-players


Remembering Robbie, a beautiful and sweet child, who loved nature just like I do. You will remain in our hearts & minds as long as we may live.

With love,
Helen Henderson

Many thanks to Maureen, Roseanne, Christine and Rachel for setting up this grove in memory of Robbie and also many thanks to all friends and family for contributing.
Glen Affric was one of my son's favourite places and he took me and Ernie there for walks, to educate us in the wildlife, trees and the history of the Highlands. We immediately fell in love with this beautiful place.
With planting these trees your spirit will live on. May your soul be at peace now.
Missing you and loving you a lot
Mum and Ernie xx

With very fond memories of Robbie.
Love Sarah Thomson

In loving memory
Mrs Barbara Johnstone

Gisela, what a lovely way to commemorate your son's life.
Thinking of you -
Best wishes from James and Mary

To help keep alive the memory of a very special young man.
For Robbie
From Cathie and Bob

You understood these trees.
Their language and their song.
Rest amongst them now in peace, Robbie.
Love from Irene and Linda xxx

A perfect way to celebrate Robbie's life,
Pat and Bert

In loving and lasting memory of Robbie - a star who burned out too soon.

Abschied von Robbie
Du warst beseelt von dem Wunsch, echt zu sein,
dich nicht kuenstlich zu verhalten,
Nicht an deine Wirkung zu denken.
Du wolltest dich nicht zuruecknehmen aus Angst,
nicht verstanden zu werden.
Du wolltest nicht Worte sagen, die du nicht meinst,
und nicht ein Gesicht anlegen, das dich verkrampft.
Du wolltest du selbst sein, ganz entspannt,
ein Mensch unter Menschen.
Und du fragtest dich, ob fuer dich Platz ist in der Welt,
Fuer dich, so wie du bist.
In Trauer Karin

Schoen, das ich die Gelegenheit habe, in einem so fernen Lande ein Baeumchen fuer Dich pflanzen zu lassen. Da Glen Affric Deine Lieblingsgegend war, bin ich mir sicher, dass es ein besonders grosser, starker Baum wird.
In ewiger Erinnerung und tiefer Trauer
Deine Tante Rosi

Bei meiner Abschiedszeremonie am 17.Dezember im Pfälzerwald habe ich Robbie gesehen, mehr und mehr umhüllt von einem sehr warmen hellen Licht. Er wirkte zunehmend friedlich, gelöst und aufgeräumt.
Wenn Du in diesem Licht sein darf, Robbie, wirst Du kein Leid spüren.
Dein Onkel Claus

We dedicate these trees to the memory of our beloved nephew Robbie, a young man who loved nature and the old ways. Rest in peace, Robbie.
We love you and we will never forget you.
Uncle Dave and Aunt Lesley.

To the memory of Robbie from Allan and Opa, missing you
and hoping you are at peace now.

Always thinking about you Robbie.....
Much love,
Emma xx
