Happy Birthday Shelbie



Happy Birthday Shelbie

She's 12 years old today and our only Grandaughter, she's outnumbered by the boys, it's a good job she's such a lovely, pretty girly girl and can keep them all in line.

Have a lovely day, we're all thinking of you here in Manchester, Preston and Berkshire.


With all our love,

Nana Sue, Alan, Great Granny Joan, Great Grandad Syd, Great Uncle Graham and Uncle Jason.

Dad is relatively comfortable in the Hospice but is slowly slipping away from us now.  We all sit with him and have brief little flashes of recognition from him as he wakes slightly and reaches out for our hands, but then he drifts off back to the deep sleep he's experiencing now.  It won't be long and we will always be with him while we still have him.

Thank you for all the hugs, we shared them between us and added them to ours.

  3. This shows exactly the double edge of life- celebrating your Grand childrens' birthdays while your dad slips away. They were lucky to know their Great grandfather - many don't.

  5. I can't imagine how you must be feeling right now, I had a little cry reading this, it is so hard seeing a loved one slipping away. I can imagine you are in two minds, one wanting him to suffer no more but the other wanting him back, the man that you know and love and have many fond and happy memories of.

    You are all in my thoughts, thinking of you today as I have been all week. Lots of love and hugs to you all x x x x P.S Stay strong x x
