“Thank you all so much for your kindness and care of Alice during the past few weeks. Also you support and guidance to the family over the final days were much appreciated. Bless you all.”
You all cared from the heart and not because it was your job. You were so kind to grandad and to me and my family too. I know grandad grew close to some of you and thought a lot of you. Thank you so very much for everything. With love.
