  • This is my very special Grandfather that I never met. You looked a very special man and I am so sad not to have ever met you. I know you made my Grandma so happy and such a tragedy that you never had a chance to grow old with your boys and your beautiful Pearl. Can't wait to meet you one day. Love and hugs, Lorraine xxx
