sorry for posting on xmas eve with this but there is a message at the end for you all....



about 6 weeks ago my gran died (thanks for the support) and now on xmas eve my grandad has sadly passed away, dad and sis are in new zealand on hol to try and get over loss of gran and hes not due back till feb.

grandad was an amazing fella, shot in the head at 19 in the war, battled through that and was left partly paralyzed down his right side, won some medals, never gave a stuff what people thought and always said what was on his mind, but at the same time a true gent with an eye for the ladies.

he will be sadly missed and never forgotten by me, same as my gran.


so......... this xmas, when little tommy is running round screaming and your getting headache, mother in law is giving out sneaky insults aimed at you, the xmas dinner gets burnt etc

just be grateful for what you have got, dont let the small things upset you and have a fooking good xmas and thats an order not a request.


yabba.

My sincere condolences to you and the rest of your family. You've had a really **** time of it these past few months. I admire your strength in ploughing through.

I hope you manage to enjoy Christmas as best you can and think of previous Christmases you shared with your Grandparents, look back, and smile.

This beer's a toast to your Grandad and your Nan.

And to you.

Merry Christmas Yabba!

:cheers:

Hi Yabba, really sorry to hear your grandad has passed away! 2005 has not been a very good year as it?

Remember the good times spent together and the many treasured memories. I'm sure he and your gran wish you lots of happiness so try keeping your chin up during these sad times.

Wish you a peaceful Christmas.

Paola

sorry to hear this. but sympathy will only weaken you. good times are still to come, and be happy in the knowledge that your grandad is'nt lonely anymore now that he's with your gran. they're probably holding hands now sitting by the river of eternity looking in to it and seeing you guys and feeling happy at all they've achieved. remember, they haven't left you, they'll be waiting for all of you at a place where we will all eventually go to, as long as you remain strong and good here, and be true to your self as to your family and friends. best wishes! :angel:
