|Let the memory of Urania be with us forever|
"Well Nan another year without you. Where has 40 years gone? I can remember that day, so painful, but it wasn't your fault. It was just your time. Things move on - now into 2017 with our Katy's wedding due in July. Mum knew about Katy but sadly didn't survive to meet her. Hopefully you've both been watching her grow. Jeni spends her first Mothers Day this Sunday with Matthew, growing fast, crawling and pulling himself up. Hope to see them soon, looks like this Nanny will be needed at some point as they have decided to move. Your Mary has been in touch. So hard to think her and Frank are both mid 70's now, even worse to think of me mid 60's. Sleep well Nan you deserve it and God willing we will meet again one day. Love you to the moon and back, always have and always will xxx"
"Well couldn't get to this nan on your birthday as was on way to Jeni to visit them all and get to see Michael and Matthew. Matthew is now just over 3 months old born on our wedding anniversary of all days. So we now have Matthew Byron David Horne. He's the most smiley, happy baby with sparkling blue eyes. His big brother is just amazing. Loves grandad to bits - no time for nanny really but maybe things will change. I do get hugs now mind you - but can't complain as he's not in that awful reflux anymore. Heartbreaking to hear him cry so. Anyway we don't have a Urania yet in the family!!!! Nearly the end of another year now and next year sees Katy married. Miss you like it was yesterday - my one hope is that somehow I'll get to see you again."
"Another year Nan. Says 39 years ago since I saw you last. More news. You'll hopefully be a great, great mother again in the summer. Our Jeni expecting again. Sadly lost a little one not meant to be last year. She won't tell me if he or she and has often said she wanted to use the name Urania as a middle name if a girl. If you're watching us nan please watch over Jeni - she's having a rough ride again with this one. I hope there is something after this life to see you again. Miss you so much. xx"
"Yet another year nan, another birthday to remember. Mine two weeks ago tomorrow, Marys one week ago tomorrow and yours today. We had such a laugh as I never have caught up with Mary. She's doing ok, Franks ill though with Parkinsons now. Denise is now a grandma through Tobi. Our Katy is now engaged, getting married in 2017. Do miss you so much still - wherever you are nan I hope I get there one day to see you again. Happy Birthday nan - love you to the moon and back xxx"
"Oh nan I so need you today. So much has happened. Fallen out with Katy so a broken link there now. Your great-grandson Michael is driving his mum and dad mad beyond belief - just doesn't like sleeping. Finally found my birth mother only to find she died in 2000. I so much need a hug from you - and miss you so so much. I've lost a lovely friend Doris recently and as I was away I didn't have time to say goodbye. I need you to tell me what to do. Everything has gone so wrong."
"Another birthday year nan. Why does it get worse the older I get in missing you so much. Time heals - I don't think so. More news - Mary is going to be a great grandmother would you believe it. Denise's boy Tobi is going to be a dad next April - same month our Jeni was born. Our Katy's going to be a homeowner in about 2 weeks time - guess you'd be pleased both our girls have done so well. Also found pictures of where grand-dad's eldest brother is buried in France - lots of things going on about WWI now. Often wondered if grand-dad said anything about him. I'm 63 now nan - whenever my time is I know we'll meet up again. Love you."
"Left a poem nan, it's in photos - think it says it all x love you always"
"Well nan, 37 years gone now. Hope you like the photo I've added - finally going through everything. It's Ron's wedding and you're standing next to him with my mum next and then me! Long time ago that too considering mum, Ron and Pamela are all gone too. Why do I still miss you as if it happened yesterday? One day I'll see you again to get one of those hugs I miss so much. I love you so much nan."
"Yet another year Nan. I'm a grandmother too now - Michael Keith Alan Horne was born 4th May 2013. Should have been nearer when I lost mum but he arrived 2 weeks early. looks just like his dad. I hope you felt about me what I feel about him. Please watch over him."
"Where has all the time gone nan? I remember that day as if yesterday. Talking to you one minute and you'd gone the next. So sudden - I know you didn't mean to leave me like that. My Jeni's having a little boy in May - just around when mum died all those years ago too - so you'll be a great, great grandmother. Jeni was going to use Urania if it had been a girl. I miss you so much nan x"
