  • Grandpa Rex is such a legend in our family. He is a role model of how amazing life can be if you have a positive outlook . The best way I can honour him is to adopt this into my everyday life. I will always remember his whistle and his warm welcome "Hello dear!". I am so proud to be his granddaughter. Lots of love Grandpa x x x
