Good-bye

Last week we said farewell to Jason's grandad who died at the age of 87. It is never easy to say good-bye.

Jason wrote a loving tribute to his grandad that he read out to family and friends at the funeral - it was on behalf of the 17 grandchildren who had special memories of a most excellent grandfather.

The recurring theme among the grandchildren was a memory of Grandad's warm laugh and his love of a joke. He was also remembered as a good decent working man and a exemplary role model for his children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. How lucky we were to have him in our lives.

Grandad will be greatly missed.
