The love you and Nan shared for each other is one in a million and I’m so thankful I was able to witness that. You were a fighter right up until the end and I’m so thankful I was able to be with you. We’ll take care of Nan for you, don’t worry about that. We all miss you, but we know you’re not in pain anymore. Love always, Toria xx
