Dedicated to the memory of Joel Langford

This site is a tribute to the memory of Joel Langford, who was born on February 22, 2002.

Joel was lively, headstrong and enthusiastic, with a dogged determination. He faced many challenges, but succeeded at the things he put his mind to, most recently his outstanding GCSE results.

Joel's desire to be a role model for younger children facing similar challenges is part of what has prompted the decision to leave a legacy for the Special Educational Needs Department at Great Marlow School. We also would like Joel to be remembered for what he brought into our lives. 

All the staff at Great Marlow School accepted Joel for who he was, but the Special Educational Needs Department played a significant role by providing him with a safe space throughout his Secondary Education. Money donated will go towards this phenomenal work, which is often overlooked and under resourced, helping the SEN staff to continue to support other young people.

Thank you for your generosity and for honouring Joel's memory in this way. 

He is much loved and will always be remembered.

Thoughts

I’m 21 years old, I take care of kids, teens, adults with autism and other special needs. I really wanna send my condolences out to the family. This makes me wanna thrive harder and teach these kids it’s totally ok to be different. I really hate hearing these things. This makes me extremely sad and it hurts my heart. May you stay in peace angel ❤️.

I do not sleep. I am a thousand winds that blow. I am the diamond glints on snow. I am the sunlight on ripened grain. I am the gentle autumn rain. When you awaken in the morning's hush I am the swift uplifting rush Of quiet birds in circled flight. I am the soft stars that shine at night. Do not stand at my grave and cry; I am not there. I did not die.

I Am Standing Upon The Seashore I am standing upon the seashore. A ship at my side spreads her white sails to the morning breeze and starts for the blue ocean. She is an object of beauty and strength. I stand and watch her until at length she hangs like a speck of white cloud just where the sea and sky come to mingle with each other. Then, someone at my side says; "There, she is gone!" "Gone where?" Gone from my sight. That is all. She is just as large in mast and hull and spar as she was when she left my side and she is just as able to bear her load of living freight to her destined port. Her diminished size is in me, not in her. And just at the moment when someone at my side says, "There, she is gone!" There are other eyes watching her coming, and other voices ready to take up the glad shout; "Here she comes!"
