Family gathering

Today was my Grandma’s funeral and it was a lovely occasion.  All the family were there plus some of Grandma’s friends and neighbours.  Best of all, we were joined by our new found cousin, Andrew, from South Africa who is Grandma’s long lost nephew – her brother’s son.  Her brother, Roger, was a pilot with BOAC and his plane disappeared many years ago and no trace of the wreckage was ever found and since then we have had no contact with the wife and children he left behind until last year when Andrew managed to find us and we are pleased he did.

I know the entire family feels blessed to have known such a special lady and whilst missing her we are all happy that it was a peaceful end with her children by her side.
