To Nina
I met you in Peryn aged 2, which was 38 years ago. Although I was too young to remember that first meeting, I can honestly say that my whole life is filled with such good memories of you, Johnny and your kids. You were part of my life since before I can remember.

We all grew up together and even though you had 7 kids (which is enough), you never made me feel like adding another was too much. You always made me welcome and my childhood memories are filled with you - Brown Derby’s on a Sunday in the wimpy down the blue, caravan days, holidays in Spain, dinners in Frankland, sleepovers at your house. I could go on forever. I always felt like part of your family and I still do. I love each and every one of your kids. And I admire the family you raised.

I can picture those memories so clearly in my mind and I’m heartbroken that you’re gone. I hate to see your kids hurting, and the sadness you leave behind. I know people always say this, but you truly were one of a kind - In the most special and amazing way. And the family you leave behind are a testament to the person you were.

I hope you are peaceful now. And I know without a doubt that you are with God and your family, and that you are looking down on everyone with your beautiful smile.

P.s. I will miss the Christmas and birthday cards. You never ever forgot!
Thank you for being in my life and for making me part of a really special family. I feel blessed to have known you.
Good night and God Bless
Nikki
Xx
