    One of my favourite memories is when you made Castle Puddings and I loved them so much that you let me have one for breakfast! Another favourite memory is when you gave me your little ceramic pig that I loved in 2003 and I still have today. You will be missed. xxx

  21. Nani, my beautiful Nani. This has been so hard, heartbreaking.
    A rollercoaster of emotions, one minute I’m laughing randomly as I reminisce of special memories with you, whilst others have left me in a flood of tears. As I’m sure there had been more than enough tears shed by all, I’ll leave with some moments that should draw a smile.
    -Playing Bingo with you, and me not being able to keep up with you! ‘Lucky Phyl’
    -Locksport and our fishing trips- accept that we ‘scared the fish away’!
    -Drowning in sea of bubbles in your spa bath with our special Barbie bubbles you had for us!! But always yelling at us not to put our fingers in the jet holes or the drain!!
    -Barracking for you at ten pin bowling, so passionately that we accidentally sprayed water all over the place… as if the floor need to be anymore slippery at a bowling alley?!
    -Singing ‘Hey Big Spender’ with you, trying to reach those tough low notes together, or attempting to master ‘One’ while kicking our legs up all over the place.
    -Having our little arguments about who loves who more, I would always win because Nani, I do, love you more. Always have, always will.

    I would do anything to turn back time, so that I could have seen you more, these last few years. A regret that will haunt me forever. I hope though that you knew just how much I adore you, right from the moment I was in your arms not even one birth minute old.

    My Nani, a light of my life.
    One, singular sensation, every little step she takes.
    Shine bright Nani.
