It was a blessing getting to call you my granny and baking sidekick learning to perfect your famous shortbread and fruitcake. You were my biggest cheerleader through life so far and I’ll continue to try and make you proud in everything I do. I’ll always be your gentle giant wearing my dresses with my “shoulders back” because you’d “kill for even a bit of my height” – I love you Granny, it was an honour getting to spend those precious hours talking with you in your last few days with us. Rest easy now, I just know Poppy and Christine were waiting with open arms – Charlotte xx
