Cowart's Common Room
Lixtroll's sparkling Gran

I just wanted to offer a huge Purple Hug and loads of love to Lixtroll and her family as her wonderful 'sparkling' Gran passed away yesterday morning. It was one of the 'Cooers' who came up with the phrase 'sparkling Gran' in response to a post Lixtroll put up many months ago about her Gran - the description fitted perfectly

Lixtroll's Gran was an amazing lady of 96 and had many tales to tell of years gone by - especially those of her years in her drama club.

She slipped away peacefully yesterday morning in hospital after a severe chest infection.

It was a genuine privilege to have known her.

Love and Hugs to you Lixtroll

Milla's Avatar my sympathies to you, Lixtroll. Even when it is a "good end" it is still a shock and a great loss. I miss mine! My sparkling Gran died on the night of Lockerbie - she would have been FURIOUS to have been overshadowed! The coffin was all but spinning. She had given birth to my mother as a 44 year old widow, had claimed to be dying from that point and made it to a fortnight off her 91st birthday. One of a kind our Grannies are. xx
