Each week Bristol Live shares messages and tributes for those who have recently passed, or on the anniversaries of those who have been gone longer, right here on our page. They come in the form of death and funeral notices and these tributes tell of lifetimes spent together, adventures embarked on, loves that have stood the test of time and friendships that have made life all the more special.
Some of these tributes have been sent straight to the Bristol Post and this week we're listing those dated October 1 to October 7, in alphabetical order by surname. If you wish to share a message or tribute of your own (or leave donations/find out more about funeral arrangements) you can do so by visiting the Funeral Notices website and searching for Bristol Post.
Here are the messages for loved ones no longer with us, from the past seven days...
Still love and miss you. Husband Terry, Children Michael and Partner Maxzine, Christine and Husband Nathan and Grandchildren Eleanor, Harrison and Madeleine. x x x x x
