Thoughts

I cannot actually believe it's been a year since we said goodbye to David (My Poppop). We've had a whirlwind 12 months experiencing our first Christmas', New Year, celebrating birthdays and countless occasions including saying goodbye to yet more loved ones. I think about him so much, at times I almost forget he's gone and it hits me like a ton of bricks - he is acutally gone, it can take my breath away, the pain is so real and I cannot even begin to imagine the sadness Nana, Susan or Andrew feel. He was such an incredible man, the void left in our lives is massive. I am forever grateful that we had all the amazing years we did and to The Christie for allowing us 4 more treasured years after his diagnosis. Poppop was a particularly special person - he was the only Grandad I knew (on my Mum's side) it didn't matter to him who he was related to by blood or marriage, he treated us all the same and loved us all equally. I had the honour of creating a powerpoint of photographs to share at David's funeral and whilst it has taken me almost a year I'm hoping I've managed to make it sharable whilst adding in the song that was played at the end of his funeral (unfortunately the file is too big for this page but I'm hoping it will share to facebook). I set up this memorial page because I want Poppop's memory to live on and for loved one's to be able to share special moments - even if that just ends up being me I don't care. Love you always Poppop - I will be having a little glass of whiskey tonight and make a toast in your memory. The stars have been shining so bright the last couple of nights, just like they were a year ago tonight.
