Goodbye Grandad

I haven't updated my Blog for a while because I received some sad news over the weekend. Unfortunately my Grandad Frank, my Dad's Dad, had a heart attack on Friday and died on Saturday. I am not going home for the funeral, but I am going to write something to be read out during the service which will take place on Monday 6th February.

I just want to say a big thankyou to everyone who has been there for me during this difficult period. Special thanks to Dave who wiped away my tears and held me close. I also want to say thank you to my parents and sister who have kept in touch and looked out for me, even though they are so far away and dealing with their own grief.

For anyone reading this who knew my Grandad, I want you to remember the smiles he bought to your faces. I will always think of him with a full head of hair, as Gemma and I plaited and combed it whilst he sat there very patiently. May you find peace Grandad, as all those left behind remember you.

Hi Beckie.
I hope you are well and taking care of yourself. It was very sad about your Grandad, and very difficult for you being so far away. I attended the funeral. It was a lovely service. What a popular man your Grandad was, the little church at the crem was full to the rafters. I was very moved by your poem, as I think the whole congregation were. It was just perfect. I do hope you get your birthday card on time. Have a good time on the day. Love to you and David from Auntie Kazza and Uncle Graham. XX.

Hi Aunty Karen and Uncle Graham,

I am so glad that so many people were at the funeral and that everyone liked the poem. It was really hard being away but the Knight family made good use of Skype! I received your card yesterday and am now very excited about my birthday on Monday. There is going to be a big party next Saturday to celebrate me being 22 and also my friend Monica's birthday. We are having a 60s theme and it's going to be fab. Have fun this weekend with the S party and make sure you take lots of pictures. Thank you for posting. Love Beckie xxx
