Here lies Uncle Griff Owen,
who was once a Desert Rat
and always a Welshman to the core.
He taught art at the local school,
loved the hills of his country,
and sang strong in the choir.
He helped me make toy trains
when I was young, and when he was gone
I carried him into the church on my shoulder.
Here also lies Thomas Bladon,
the artist from the Midlands,
who made Snowdonia his home.

He has a PhD in creative writing and runs a writing support group for people with mental health issues.
