Mr David William Dalton is a well loved and sorely missed Father, Brother, Son, Uncle and friend to many. David was diagnosed with incurable Cancer about 2 months. He remained strong and bravely fought it, keeping his spirits up and with a smile on his face. Even until the very end, he maintained his positive outlook and still managed to make us all laugh with the odd devious remark or roll of the eyes which in turn kept our spirits up. We unfortunately lost David 2 weeks ago and it has left a big hole in our lives and an even bigger one in our hearts. It has hit us all very hard, especially David's Mother Peggy who is 92, his brothers Richard and Robert and lastly, his 18 year old son, Vincent, who tragically lost his mother this year as well. We are not a wealthy family and this tragedy came very unexpectedly. With no prior plans for such situation in place, we are struggling to raise the money to pay for his funeral. We are a proud family so reaching out for help is difficult for us. Whilst we should be able to lay David to rest peacefully and begin to grieve, we are unable to do so as we are desperately trying to source the money to give him a proper send off first. We are looking to raise £3,773 for the service. This amount covers the basics only, excluding his coffin and flowers for example which we have already sourced cheaper options for. If you are able to donate just a small amount, every single penny really does count here and we will be eternally grateful. If by some miracle we are able to raise this target on here and perhaps more, we would like the remaining money to be split between St Catherines Hospice in Crawley, who provided the most incredible support to us throughout and then David's son Vincent. He really has been through the toughest times of his young life already. If we can, we would love to organise a day out for him and give him something positive to look forward to. We honestly appreciate any donation you can spare. I also welcome friends and family to add their own comments/photos if they wish and perhaps write about their best memory of David. Let's stick together and keep his memory alive. Thank you. Hannah Dalton.
