The following poem was written by Nicole Johnson

In memory of Bou Nikolaos Johnson
Died before you could live 17th of Feb 2003 ( 9 wks 6 days)
 
Much loved by Mummy and Daddy
Will be thought of by Sophie & Brothers & Sisters to come.
 
Protected by the caring arms of Eva Audrey Ives (Nanna)
 
You are the highest angel on the tree,
The brightest star in the night Sky,
the greenest blade of grass in a lawn of brown,
The largest patch of blue on a rainy day,
Thought of and missed for years to come.
Mummy xxx
