Initially Gran herself was not so keen on a large get together. She finds it difficult to hear what you are saying to her when in a large crowd, with lots of others talking in the background. But recently she has said that she is really looking forward to it now. There are some people coming that she has not seen in an awfully long time and very, very nearly all of her family will be there. Sixty two in total. There is one very dear man who won’t be able to come, but I am sure Granddad is looking down on us. We miss him, Gran most of all.
Today and Saturday though will be two extra special days, remembered and treasured by us all.
