Yeah, I wonder how many people are going to receive birthday cards or letters from Grandma weeks or months after she has died, she was very organised!

I guess she was always our favourite grandparent, not that the others weren’t lovely, but it was always really clear that she really, genuinely wanted to be with us and really, really loved us.

We’ll miss her a lot won’t we?!

Lots of love

There’s too much!!

One memory that will always stick with me is that she was always most happy when entertaining people and generally being with people, especially her great grandchildren who she really engaged with. Very much like she really engaged with us when we were little.

Love

Re: The things my Grandma taught me

These are the quotes that immediately spring to mind.

“No time like the present”
“Don’t put off until tomorrow what you can do today”
“If a job’s worth doing, it’s worth doing well”

Other memories include the fantastic array of cakes and ‘chocolate
grandma’ that always accompanied them when they came to stay,
Grandma’s delicious and wholesome food, home made orangeade, the Twin-
Tub and her active, hands-on participation in bath-time when she used
to swish us up and down (or maybe it was just me) as the water drained
away. Lastly, the way she always remembered people, names and faces
and the incredible amount of letters she wrote to people, I imagine
for their encouragement.

Not sure what else you want to add or how to squeeze those into
something coherent.

Lots of love

Alex
