Messages of Condolence

Jade Yates


Grandad, you always made me laugh and smile. I want to thank you for everything you have done for me, the interesting things you have told me that I will continue to remember and show throughout my entire life. I will never forget all the cakes that we have ate together, because we both love cake! You were the best Grandad I could have ever asked for and I will always remember you forever.
Shine bright,
Love Jade xxx

Grandad, thank you for having such a big impact on my life and the way I look at things. You were a kind, honest and hilarious man who never failed to make a comment on my hair when everyone wanted me to cut it. You've told me some great stories I will take with me throughout my life.

Grandad - you were the most honest, caring, kind, and noble people I ever had the courtesy of knowing. I spent such a large part of my childhood with you, and I’m so sorry I didn’t spend more of my adulthood with you. I promise to go forward in my life remember the lessons you taught me, and I will take inspiration from you in everything I do

All my love and respect
