Nanna, it's been 6 years since we lost you (6/5/18) and it feels like yesterday. Not a day goes by that we don't miss you. I miss your hugs, they always felt like coming home. I miss your smile, it would always make a day brighter. I miss your voice, I miss you! Whenever I'm sad I think about your hugs, Nanna I miss you and always will. I know Grandad and Dad would give anything to have you back too. Sending you love from all of us, you may be out of sight but you will never be out of our minds, all my love Shorna xxxxxxxx
