Tribute to Darcy Elizabeth Reid. Written by her dad Simon on behalf of the family.
Our dear beloved beautiful daughter Darcy Elizabeth Reid was a truly inspirational talented girl. Darcy had a passion for living life to the full but also focused on her career. Achieving her goals at the University of Leicester with a Degree and a Masters. Darcy joined the police force and made some wonderful friends. Her sense of humour and wit was an instant like.
Darcy enjoyed socialising with her friends in Leicester and Tamworth. But she was also a family girl. A girl who enjoyed pairing up with her sister to tease her father. I guess that was her pay back for losing occasionally on the PlayStation. Both girls enjoyed this.
Darcy liked the simple things in life, such as going for a coffee and a cake with anyone who would say yes. Her love for food was influenced by her Mom Stef (being Portuguese). Let's say, she no longer asked her Dad on how to cook...
Darcy enjoyed family holidays and concerts with friends, mainly at her Dad's expense. But I wouldn't have had it any other way.
The day of the accident that lead to her death broke all of our hearts. Our lives have been hit hard and will never be the same. Darcy will always be in our hearts and will continue to live with us. We often say, if Darcy was here she'll do this or say that. Her wit, her dad jokes, her hugs, her teasing and educating us all will sadly be missed.
Rest in peace princess. We all love and miss you very much!
