17 years ago today, my beloved Grandmother passed away. I thought that I would share a few of my favourite photos of her.

- Bottom right – taken circa 1948 with my Grandfather and their daughter, my Mum.

Thanks for stopping by Nell and your comment. She was an incredible influence on me. I have some really fond and amusing memories of her and thankfully I did make lots of notes of our conversations together.
She looks a lovely lady Julie. I wish I'd written down more of my grandmother's stories which she told me when I was a child. She died a few days after my daughter was born. It's great that we can pay tribute to these wonderful women through the blog.
It is lovely that I have photos and I have quite a few of them. Sadly non of her wedding. We were very close and I think of her often. She was an amazing lady.
Isn't it wonderful to have photos of your grandmother to remember her by. Sounds like you were close.
Thanks for a lovely comment and for making me #2 on the list. I am off to check out your page now. I really wish I had though of doing a top 5 each day….maybe next year!
