“I’m selfishly heartbroken that you have gone, but I have comfort knowing you are pain-free and that all of your wishes till the last we’re exactly how you wanted them.

“Thank you, Jody, for your love, your loyalty and for an open door, and open arms whenever anyone needed a hug and a cuppa . I love you, darling.. Nan night xx.”(sic)
