My husband's Nana died on Tuesday. She was Minnie's (little) Big Nana, my Shirley and Mummy to her daughters. She had been a wife.
She was a friend to everyone. She was a nurse and a teacher. She was a delight. She was wonderful company. She was funny and smart and nothing got past her. She loved candied ginger. She was not a big fan of chocolate.
She was sweet and genuine and entertaining. She hated cooking. She didn't drive. She had travelled the world. She was well read. She knitted a little. She loved tea. She loved good crime fiction and disliked romance novels. She loved the Impressionists and a good film.
She will be missed by everyone for ever.
