    to a dearest nan

    you will forever be in my heart and ill always be thanking you for every feather that i ever see. a secret shared with me and emma that even beyond the grave you knew about as you sent a feather to fall between us both. when not even a bird was in sight.

    its hard to know that i cant come and see you, to sit by your graveside, at the moment but believe me the family are doing all they can so that we can come and see you and poppa once more.

    you were the most wonderful woman i have ever met. someone who i dont think it is ever possible to be replaced. someone who was always there with a brave smile when times were hard and a cup of tea that you were never allowed to get away from. made with real tea.. not teabags! endless stories and endless cups of teas along with endless laughs. a woman who never once showed her age or lack of fighting spirit.

    tomorrow carol, nigel, emma, adam, mum and i will be sending you our best from those cups and saucers.

    to a dearest nan, someone who will never be missed and forever in my heart

    mand....this is so beautiful. your nan was an amazing woman - and i think you have much of her, inside yourself.

    it's a lovely tribute, and a lovely gesture to use her special teacups and share in her memory on this day.

    i'll be thinking of you all the while - hoping that you still feel your nan's protective love around you....she will be with you always.
