In Memory of our Queen of Hearts

Lady Diana The Princess of Wales

 Its been Sixteen years since in the early hours of that fateful morning Aug 31st, 1997. That Princess Diana along with her boyfriend, Dodi Fayed and their chauffeur Henri Paul, were killed in a horrific car crash, in the Pont de l'Alma Tunnel alongside the Seine River in Paris, France.

Princess Diana was an incredible lady who is still greatly missed, no one who knew Diana will ever forget her.  Even in death Diana remains the "people's princess" because of her devoted charity work.  Donations made at the time of the Princess's death in 1997 saw the creation of The Diana, Princess of Wales Memorial Fund

Goodbye England's Rose
May you ever grow in our hearts. 
You were the grace that placed itself
Where lives were torn apart.
You called out to our country,
And you whispered to those in pain.
Now you belong to heaven,
And the stars spell out your name.

And it seems to me you lived your life
Like a candle in the wind:
Never fading with the sunset 
When the rain set in.
And your footsteps will always fall here,
Along England's greenest hills; 
Your candle's burned out long before
Your legend ever will.

Loveliness we've lost; 
These empty days without your smile. 
This torch we'll always carry 
For our nation's golden child. 
And even though we try,
The truth brings us to tears;
All our words cannot express 
The joy you brought us through the years.

 




And it seems to me you lived your life
Like a candle in the wind:
Never fading with the sunset 
When the rain set in.
And your footsteps will always fall here,
Along England's greenest hills; 
Your candle's burned out long before
Your legend ever will.

Goodbye England's Rose
May you ever grow in our hearts. 
You were the grace that placed itself
Where lives were torn apart.
Goodbye England's Rose, 
From a country lost without your soul,
Who'll miss the wings of your compassion 
More than you'll ever know.

And it seems to me you lived your life
Like a candle in the wind:
Never fading with the sunset 
When the rain set in.
And your footsteps will always fall here,
Along England's greenest hills; 
Your candle's burned out long before
Your legend ever will.
