St Mark's Mansfield

Remembering Thomas

It is not growing like a tree

In bulk, doth make men better be:

The cherry tree planted last year by the young people of St Mark's in memory of their friend Thomas Burton who died on 9 July 2014

The cherry tree planted last year by the young people of St Mark’s in memory of their friend Thomas Burton who died on 9 July 2014

Or standing long as oak, three hundred year,

To fall at last, dry, bald and sere:

A lily of a day

Is fairer far in May,

Although it fall and die that night

It was the plant and flower of light.

In small proportion we just beauty see;

And in short measure, life may perfect be.

Ben Jonson

 

 

Thomas Burton

 

 

The flowers in Church have been donated in Thomas’ memory by his family and arranged by Ann Pradhan.
