  3. A part of you will live on in us all, whether it be organisation, a leader, standing up for what we believe in, or sipping a glass of red. You’ve created a wonderful family and I have so many lasting memories of my childhood at your place with my cousins. Fly high Grandma, time to get back to pulling Grandpa into line ❤️❤️ Love always Kristy, Shaun, Darcy, Blake and Hayden.
