The following tribute was written by Vesta's granddaughter Lindsey who read it at Vesta's service.


For our “Toot”

A sunset at the end of a beautiful day is often thought of as “The End”, that’s it, time for sleep… Goodnight. 

It seems to mean the day is done, we can’t have it back and we can’t do it all over again. 

What the sunset actually means, however, is that a new day is coming. 

This new day will be brighter, shinier and happier than the day before. 

This new day will be free of pain, free of worries and abundant in love.   

Let us always remember at the end of a beautiful day that a new, beautiful beginning is coming. 

Let us always remember at the end of a beautiful life that a new, beautiful beginning is happening. 

The sun may have set but we know it’s not “The End”.  

Goodnight, Toot, sweet dreams… We will see you tomorrow.
