Thelma Clarice Ross

To my darling Grandma,

May you fly free now from all of the pain and suffering you have endured throughout your life. You are special in so many ways and I am so thankful that my children got to know you and make you so happy.

You and Grandad both form so many memories of my childhood, the incinerator in the backyard, the go cart down the hill, the trips to McDonalds, the bingo days, the endless sleepovers that involved playing hairdressers, playing cards, watching the Wheel of Fortune, summer Cricket and listening to the wireless. I think the thing that will remain the strongest is the smell of Oil of Olay(I think it was called something else back then though).

Grandma you have been the strongest woman I have known. Your strength and bravery are just amazing. You showed us this in life and in death.

I am so pleased that after 23 years you and Grandad can be together again. Rest in peace Granny, you will be missed.

Love Andrea

I am so sorry to hear about your Granny. My thoughts are with you and your family.

I think Oil of Olay used to be called Oil of Ulan?

Karen said...

Yep, Oil of Ulan it was!
Sounds like many of the perfect Aussie childhood memories you have were formed with your Granny Andrea.
So sory to hear of her passing, I hope you feel some comfort knowing she's reunited with your Grandad again.

That was it Oil of Ulan. Thanks girls for your comments.
