Mary Berryman was our founder and chairman – a truly remarkable lady. It was devastating to all who knew her when she lost her battle against the cruelty of cancer in June 2008. Mary worked tirelessly for the animals here at Flicka – even during her illness the animals came first.
An elegant, kind, warm-hearted lady, with a delightful sense of humour.
Judy Giles, Mary's daughter, and Laurie Stephenson now continue with the ‘Flicka’ legacy that Mary left.
Mary will always be our Chairman ‘from another place’ –
we miss her so much….
‘Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal’
Her Journey's Just Begun
Don't think of her as gone away
Her journey's just begun
Life holds so many facets
This Earth is only one
Just think of her as resting
From the sorrow and the tears
In a place of warmth and comfort
Where there are no days and years
Think how she must be wishing
That we could know today
How nothing but our sadness
Can really pass away
And think of her as living
In the hearts of those she touched
For nothing loved is ever lost
And she was loved so much
‘...the link is not severed…’
