A few days ago I lost one of the most important people in my life, my grandad. He was 95.
He was mischevious, funny, lively, admirable, caring, loving and one of the most amazing people you could ever know.
Not only did he cheat at cards and you knew he cheated but couldn’t prove it, it didn’t matter. The games were always filled with laughter and glee that a few pennies extra in his pocket were nothing important.
Talk about tall tales. Every telling of one of his tales got more and more outrageous
Right up to the end despite his poor health he would look at you and focus on you with love.
He had 4 wonderful daughters, 9 amazing grandchildren and 5 great grandchildren. add to that his son in laws and grandson/grandaughter in laws and you had a wonderful mix of family and we all adored him.
Grandad. This is how l will always remember you. A big smile a sparkle in you eyes and a proud look on your face. You slipped away from us . Night night Grandad, you are with Grandma now. Sleep peacefully. I love you and will miss you so very much.
