In Memory Of Nigel Richard Stow 1941-2004


Let's stroll along a garden path
And just enjoy the day
No thoughts of worries fill our minds
We'll just wander on our way.

Forget about life's problems
You'll see that they will keep
Just walk with me a little ways
Nature's blessings we will reap.

Let's find some joy in little things
We'll talk of nothing much
Just wander down the garden path
Sweet flowers we shall touch.

We'll find a spot to sit awhile
And watch the clouds float by
We'll listen to the song of birds
And sigh a pleasant sigh.

When at last the day is over
And home now we must go
Take the memory along with you
For the days you're feeling low.

Nigel Stow, the 16-year-old son of Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Stow, of Manor Cottage, Henley, accomplished a fine performance on Saturday last when he won the Berkshire boys cross-country championship over a course of about five miles near Maidenhead. Nigel, who previously had won the championship of his school, Ashmead, scored maximum points for Ashmead, who won the team event. The winner finished about 100 yards in front of his nearest opponent.
