Christian Newland DONKERSLEY

We are sadly having to announce the unexpected and tragic passing of our precious little boy, Christian Newland Donkersley.

Son to Tim & Colette, brother to Chelsea & Adam, grandson to Ken & Dorothy Donkersley, and Simone Darbyshire. Christian will be sadly missed by his aunts and uncles, cousins and all the other(s) fortunate enough and blessed to have been touched by his bright and shining personality.

So, sleep tight little man. We will always miss your special hugs and cuddles, and 10 second kisses. (We take comfort in that.) Keep smiling. See you soon.

Love always – Mom, Dad, Chelsea & Adam

In lieu of flowers, if you wish to do so, you can donate in Christian’s honour to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.


You’ll see me in the morning frost,

that mists your window pane.

That’s me, in the Summer showers,

I’ll be dancing in the rain.

When you feel a little breeze,

from a gentle wind that blows.

That’s me, I’ll be there,

planting a kiss upon your nose.

When you see a child playing,

And your heart feel a little tug,

that’s me, I’ll be there

giving your heart a hug.

So Daddy, please don’t look so sad,

Momma don’t you cry.

I’m in the arms of Jesus,

and he sings me lullabies.
