  • my dearest Grandfather, pop Graham I love you dearly, I wish that you could be here, I know you will be proud of me what I did in my future of doing of my Special Olympic Swimming and Acting and for me to complete my swimming comps, I do know that you will still love me what I am going through, I lost my love of my life, the man that I loved that was Daniel Mullen who lives in Hamilton and I know deep down that I still love him, and he will do the same for me, please pop I need your help. I would love him to come back together with me as a couple to be in a realtionship, I know you haven't meet him before but I do need you to say something to him please speak to him that will be great if you can do that for me..... I love you poppy
