On Christmas Eve, Sam's Grandad passed away. So Christmas Day was a little different than expected - tradition put aside and the doors flung open for everyone to be together. It was still full of warmth and fun in spite of the sadness- still "a bit loud for me" - as George would have said. I like to think he was watching us, as he always did, sitting in the corner with a smile on his face, surrounded by the family he loved so much.
What a kind, wonderful man you were George. It was a real honour to have known you. I'm so glad you got to see your first grandchild get married this year.
