Love u grandma we will miss u but u will never be forgotten now u r watching over us like papa we love and miss y’all but one day we will all be reunited but until then watch over us

My Grandma

She wasn’t like the other grans,

Spoiling kids with sweets,

The minute you stepped out of line,

That slipper’s off her feet!

She never was a pushover,

The final word was hers,

And if you were to argue back,

She’d ring your bloody ears!

She had her own opinions,

She made her feelings known,

And when it came to grandad,

She could always pick a bone!

But she was someone I’d depend on,

Whenever things turned bad,

And someone I could talk to if I was feeling sad!

She was someone who’d stand up for me,

No matter what I’d done,

Someone who always loved me,

Like a second mum.

I’m gonna miss my grandma,

More and more each day.

I think the world’s a sadder place,

Since she passed away

Paula, Linda, Lorraine and family,

I just can’t believe she is gone. Mazie has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. There is no one like her. There will never be anyone like her. I know we all thought she would be with us forever. I will always appreciate her being there for my Mom. She lived her life to the fullest, rarely slowing down. I will miss her forever and I know you all will miss her more. My heart goes out to each of you during this time of sorrow.
