Yesterday we spent the whole day saying goodbye to a beautiful soul. The service was absolutely amazing… I called you ‘son’, you called me ‘Auntie’, even though we’re not related by blood. Your infectious smile lit up the room, always full of jokes. Sleep tight my precious son, Joey Grant. Your legacy lives on, you will be truly missed.
