Sad & Bittersweet....In Memory of Michelle
My friend Michelle & I above. Michelle & her Grandad who was my Uncle Vern as well.
Today is a sad day. A lifelong friend of mine passed away today at the tender age of 30. I call Michelle's parents my Uncle & Aunty even though they aren't, but we've known their family since before I was born so it only seems natural. Michelle's Grandad was like a second Grandad to me. So many of my memories of growing up include having Uncle Vern around. Michelle was a fun, friendly & loving soul, & my times grocery shopping wont be the same without running into her & Aunty Gwenda. So during a day of tears & memories, it was a sweet surprise to receive a little package in the mail today from the lovely Miss Vanessa of Two Squirrels Vintage. Inside was a lovely bird card & a little silver Tui bird brooch pin with a splendid vintage hanky in my favourite colour combination green & pink. I love it. Thankyou dear Miss V.....you've really brightened a sad day.
