Just wanted to say thank you to you all for your kind words they are very much appreciated at the moment, given how difficult this week is proving to be add into that the news that the funeral will be Friday night into church and Saturday morning actual funeral you can imagine that this is not getting much easier. Whilst not wanting to dwell on yesterday's post what it does remind me of is how amazing you all are, I didn't want to put anything too lengthy on my facebook page as there are many of us going through this grieving process.

"thinks somewhere a very feisty old lady is being met by a very giddy Jesus in a party hat. Goodnight Grandma, another beautiful star learns to shine in the nightsky" - like I said beautiful words
