    I count my blessings every day that I had such an amazing relationship with you Grandad! You where and always will be a huge part of my life. I miss you more than ever . I miss downland road, I miss our sing song sessions and miss making you laugh.
    100 years on this earth was an amazing achievement! But no matter what it was never easy to say goodbye to you . Untill we meet again I’ll keep playing our songs ♥️ forever and always your Lisa xx
