  • I am Alister Wallis's granddaughter by marriage. He married my Nana, Eileen, who was & will forever be, the love of his life. He was a fabulous Granddad, had a heart of gold & a vitality for life that will never be beaten. Many a tear rolled down our families faces with his jokes, stories & anecdotes. A very very special man whom I miss every day. He was my Granddad & I was his Kate Bush. My only regret is that I didn't start calling him Granddad earlier as it bought us both, much joy. Love always & forever more, Katrina (Kate Bush) xoxoxox
