Sadly my lovely Nan passed away on Sunday at the ripe old age of 91. We are utterly devastated but realise that her quality of life wasn't good anymore and it was her time to go. I will remember her generosity and kindness and toilet sense of humour...always brought out at the dinner table much to the despair of my Mum!
This is her and my Grandad when they married in 1942, he was in the RAF. He sadly died at the age of seventy back in 1988. I remember fantastic holidays with them when I was a child. I lived with her for a while before I started my nurses training as I was working back in High Wycombe at the time and I remember many laughter filled evenings and nights..she would read the rude bits of her Mills and Boon books out loud to me and we would be in hysterics! I will miss her but do realise that I am very lucky to be in my forties and have had a Grandparent for so long and that she was also a Great Grandparent to my son and my Brothers three children. My brother and I will be lost without her as we were very close to her. I am so glad we both saw her just before she died. I will always remember what she used to tell me 'You'll never be a lady as long as you've got a hole in your bum, and you'll always have one of those'!! Thank you Nan for many wonderful memories and lots of laughs.
