, who has been reunited with many loved ones lost
Elizabeth McCallum 24 December 1923 – 18 December 2013
Whom moved to heaven 6 days before her 90th Birthday. On Christmas eve we raised a snowball to Grandma and toasted her party in the heavens.
Grandma suffered much tragedy in her life, she lost her baby girl Sandra at birth, She lost her beloved Jim over 30 years ago, her Son stuart in 2004, her Son in law (Mike’s Dad) in 2005 and our darling Reuben her Gt Grandson in 2012. She also lost all her possessions in a house fire in the 90’s.
Despite suffering such tragedy, Grandma Betty remained a fair, generous, warm, kind and loving lady to all her knew her and especially to her beloved family.
We have been fortunate to share every Christmas with Grandma betty since Mike and I met, 8 in total.
She was very much missed this Christmas past.
Never a quiet moment, she always had a great story to tell.
Mike and Kevin made lovely eulogies to Grandma today, and both had a lovely air of sentiment and comedy about them too. Grandma would have liked that.
We will MISS you Grandma Betty – please give our darling boy an extra cuddle tonight and tell him how much we MISS him and love him very much
And as played in church today
“We’ll meet again,
Don’t know where,
Don’t know when
But I know we’ll meet again some sunny day
Keep smiling through,
Just like you always do
Till the blue skies drive the dark clouds far away”
Love always,
Nic
