To my dearest grandma and grandpa,
It feels so strange and so sad not being able to pick up the phone and call you and ask if you have seen the latest photos or Ariana and Alonso. We always joke how Irish they look, especially Alonso, I know that you would have absolutely adored them. It hurts me so much that you never got the chance to meet them and for the time we lost over this last decade. You don’t know how many times I think back to my childhood and all the time spent with both of you, all the laughs, all the fun we had. I never needed any other children around when I was with you both that’s how much I loved being with you. I still remember watching billy elliot upstairs in the bedroom and dancing with grandma to ‘I love to boogie.’ I remember being amazed when grandma sat in the front seat of grandpa’s car just to prove to me that she did actually know how to drive. I remember grandpa teaching me how to ride a bike. I remember you saying until the very end that I would always be your ‘wee Irish girl.’ You always told me to never forget my Irish roots and all the memories and I never did, I never will. Thank you for giving me such wonderful childhood memories, ones that I will cherish for a lifetime. I hope you’re both dancing up in heaven along with Leanora and Gavin.
May you both rest in eternal peace. Love always, your little Irish girl Nadia xxxxx
Good night and God bless, may you sleep peacefully side by side. I will never forget all of the beautiful times we spent together, those precious memories will be forever in my heart. I miss you and will always love you. You will forever be in my prayers.
Your loving son, Martin Gerard.❤️
One of my earliest memories is of you saying “let Sallie stay here for a week” while we were on a visit to Corby from Derbyshire.
Although I was very shy, I remember having fun with Martin Gerard, Margot and Leonora. I did, however, get in to a bit of trouble for telling them that Santa wasn’t real.
During that week you taught me Molly Malone and found a green, White and gold outfit to wear to return home.
I loved to hear Aunty Anna sing and can’t hear “Frankie and Johnny” without thinking of her.
RIP with the family waiting for you. Sallie
To Grandma and Grandpa,
Thank you so very much for all of the many memories that you created with me. I love and will never forget a single one of them. I love you both very much and it warms my heart knowing that you will both be buried in such a beautiful place.
Rest in eternal peace ❤️x
A loving couple who visited me in Sheffield and listened to jigs and reels.
Aunty Anna was a wonderful singer. I particularly liked her singing shores of Americay.
God bless them both.
