Please dress up for a day at the races, this will be a celebration of a long life well lived.


  1. I'm so sorry, YS. Sincere condolences from me and mine to you and yours.

    What a long, grand life your grandad lived, though. From the tidbits you've mentioned over the past few years, there was lots of spirit there into very old age. Your references to him always made me smile, as I adore feisty elderly gents.

  2. I'm going to be speaking at the service so I'll post the speech after I have given it, he's been a real character so hopefully I can raise a few smiles.

  3. You'll do him proud, YS, no doubt about it. I'll have a drink in his honour on the day ... "but just the one, mind." I hope I remembered that Tommy quote correctly. :)
