    Granddad, You will always be in a special place in my heart. I have so many happy memories of you that I will cherish for ever. Although it hurts that I will never see your smile, or hear your stories and your cheeky charm again, I know you are no longer battling through your days.
    You once told me during our many chats that you had no regrets in your life, and if you were given it to live again, you would live it exactly as you have. You loved, laughed and lived and were loved by many.
    Rest peacefully my lovely Granddad.
    With heavy hearts Margaret & Roxanne. X X
