I didn't get to meet Eileen until later on but I already knew so much about her from Hannah. She had already instilled in me how precious her grandparents were to her and how influential they had been in her upbringing. Once I met Eileen everything I had been told was accurate, and the glowing descriptions had not got near to helping me understand just how caring a woman she was. Even when she was not well herself that seemed to be the last thing on her mind. I can't even comprehend how Billy must feel but with the love and support of their children and grandchildren I hope he is able to find comfort. The only consolation I can think of is that Eileen is no longer suffering. The world is definitely a darker place without her but the loving and caring nature she possessed lives on through her daughters and grandchildren. Enjoy your deserved peace Eileen - the queen of the family x

I’m not sure where to start with the memories of my Nan and the hole she will leave in my life so I’ll maybe just try to recall my earliest memory. I have many early memories on videos taken by my Aunty Vicky that I’m sure I will watch forever more! But an early vivid memory is being in the front room at Nan and Grandad’s house, stood in the middle whilst they sat in their chairs, surrounded by pieces of paper with words written on them and jumping about as Nan shouted ‘now jump on the word... Sky’. Always made learning fun. Playing ‘boy, girl, fruit, flower’, cards and the infamous game of shop - given a list on a piece of kitchen roll and going off to the shop (actually the kitchen) to pick up the ‘messages’ for the day with coppers and counting out the change. The games I’ll hopefully play with my children one day. You taught me so much as I grew, Nan. To be kind, giving, how to cook, to always look your best because you don’t know who you might bump into! I miss you more than I could explain. Hannah x
