Memorial

Every month, Grandma, Mum and I go to this place where there's a fountain, beautiful flowers and gardens. We take a bunch of flowers to add to the rose tree that is already there.



It's usually sunny when we're there and we have a lovely time sitting by the fountain. I like to watch the fish. Sometimes they splash and scare me. No I'm not a scaredy cat! Some of them look bigger than me!



Sometimes we feed the fish.



Mum tells me that this is a place to remember my Grandpa. I've never met him but I think I would have loved him. He was an amazing Dad to my Mum and was the true meaning of unconditional love.

He had to go away a few years ago, much sooner than anyone thought. Especially my Mum. She misses him dearly, every single day and sometimes gets leaky eyes thinking about him.

Even though we know we can remember all the happy memories and think of Grandpa wherever we are, I really enjoy going to this place with Grandma and Mum every month.

  4. Gemma, what a lovely post. It's wonderful that your Mum's dad is remembered in this way. Losing someone we love is so, so hard and sometimes, we think that it will never get better. You are very sweet to go with your mum and we are all sure here that when she has leaky eyes, having you around is a great comfort.

    Woof.
