You always used to say that the one thing a parent can’t teach is how to grieve for their parents when they are gone. And grieve we have done, it will always be there, not time nor space will not lessen the fact that we will never again see your face, smell your sweetness or be in the presence of your grace. You made us all feel so special, unique and loved.
We cherish your memory, each in our own way, and wait for the day until we meet in a new and special way. Read More»
