My Silent Sunday last week, was a photo of me with my Grandma. It was taken the first time she met Alfie and is one of the last photos we had taken with her before she died.
She died on the 10th June 2011. It was the first anniversary of her death last Sunday. She lived in Co Durham so it would have been difficult for me to visit with flowers on the day. I wanted to have something here that I could have as a memorial to her, and something that the children can remember her by as well.
I have such lovely memories of visiting with her when I was growing up and going on trips to the sea-side. We used to go on the Mystery tour on a Sunday afternoon. I never quite understood the concept of not knowing where you are going until you get there! Molly still talks about her now, sometimes she asks when she can go to visit her to play dominoes again. She tells me how much she misses her and I know that she has lovely memories of her too. Memories that we can cherish and hold in our hearts.
So last Sunday we planted a new addition to our little garden.
A beautiful patio Rose which is now starting to sprout some gorgeous pink Roses in Memory of a beautiful lady.
RIP Grandma, you are loved and missed more than words can ever say xxxxxx
