For a very good man




For a man with the coolest middle name, Griffin.
Who was born on the 29th February, which made him 82......or 20.
Whose vintage Mercedes sat in a carpeted garage, and for whom "up-cycling" was invented, you just never know when a piece of wood, or 300 jam jars might come in handy.
A brother, a husband, a father, a father in law, and a grandfather.

Our grandfather.

p.s. they did you proud yesterday.

The title says everything about him, never a nasty word or thought and best of all because of him, we are blessed with his wonderful son, my darling husband. The flowers were stunning and a most fitting tribute in every way. Yours with tears xxxx
