Shared memory & candy winner!

My eldest Son, my Mam & Nephew boys loved to wear Grandad's Trilby's. I think this was taken in 1982 the boys were around 2 there is only 5 months between them. Mam adored her grandchildren.

It's a sad day for me today, it's my Mam's memorial.
I was only 26 when she passed away 28 years ago. She was only 59. Not a day goes by that I don't think of her. Tears don't fall as often as it does get easier but I am so grateful for all the wonderful memories.
So I decided to draw my blogaversary candy on the 29th to celebrate the wonderful person she was. Everyone loved her so much,
Drum roll............. my candy winner is Avril Ann!!
Congratulations Avril Ann.
Let me have your postal address ASAP and I will get it in the post!
