Grandad lived with my mother Kristine Savage ( Fraser ) and father Cleve Savage in Matata for my early years. Wonderful memories of licorice, dried apricots, visits to the cinema and lollies from the dairy next door. I didnt know till later that he spent periods of time in Tokonui Hospital. I loved him so much and he did spoil me on one of my birthdays with a ride on turtle. This stands out because my older sister Raeleen was the one who was normally spoiled. Granddad left to live with Aunty Emily in Hastings and I never saw him again. I clearly remember being told when he died and his funeral procession to the cemetary.
