Hi Ian I don't normally do this kind of thing but the night we got the phone call to say you had gone was a shock to say the least after watching you fight for 19 weeks so bravely i guess it was time for you to join sheena as I know how much you missed her .I have so many memories you always made me feel welcome in to your family sorry I didn't come to see you in the chapel of rest but it's my way of doing things until we meet again goodbye adi xxx

To be honest, I don't know how to write one of these so I'll just ramble on. I don't remember many things but he did tell me some stories, like when I was young he use to take me for a walk along the canal, took me to watch trains leave and arrive at a station and many other things. He always told me he liked my hat and that would make my day. It's such a shame I will never hear him say it again :( but I guess where there's death there's life, ayy Chris and Jo. RIP my handsome and amazing granddad!

I can remember when Derby were playing forest away and my mum and dad went there. I was sat on the rug next to grandad listening to the radio and he always told me to stay away from girls. Miss you grandad

I can remember him taking me to a football game when I was at school in his Citroen bx, I'm sure he didn't like football but he watched the whole game and gave us a pep talk at Half time. The best bit was the ride home with him not realising he'd put the cars suspension in off road mode until we got home. Looked like a monster truck my mates loved it.
