My Granny was told of the intended surprise party and instead, we will be having a memorial service on the Saturday and we will still go to the party to celebrate his life.
Ollie is so lucky to have met his Great-Grandad not once but twice. We went to visit them in Scotland when Ollie was just 3 months old and we had a wonderful holiday. They were then able to come here for a visit for Ollie's first birthday. A lot of people don't get the chance to meet their grand-parents, but I'm so glad that I have the photos to show Ollie.
It is very surreal knowing I will never see him again. He was a wonderful Grandad, full of bedtime stories, hilarious games and so so knowledgeable.
