A Love Like No Other

   When I think of love my maternal Grandparents come to mind. They had such an amazing love for each other, a love like No other.  A love you only dream about.

Love is energy: it can neither be created nor destroyed. It just is and always will be,
giving meaning to life and direction to goodness... Love will never die.

Lily and Herb met at Byron Bay, in New South Wales. 
A union made of fate, as their families were tied by the marriage of Herbs brother Percy to Lily's sister Edna (two brothers married two sisters).

They were married on the 24th march of 1956
at the Presbyterian church in Oliver Street Grafton,
New South Wales.

Today would have been their 55th wedding 
On their Wedding day, with their attendants Edna(Lily's sister) and Percy(Herb's brother)

Together they had two beautiful daughters,  Robyn born 1956 and Glenda born 1959.

Their daughters presented them with seven grandchildren. They now have seven great grandchildren too.

I never felt a love
Like this before
It's a love like no other
Something I have always hoped for

A love with friendship
Humour and heart
A bond so strong
It would never part

A love that makes you smile
From ear to ear
A love that is joyful
Without any fear

A love that is beautiful
From the inside out
A love with no tears,
Pain, or doubt

A love with soul
So tender and true
A love that I have found
Only in you...

Their love stood the the test of time.

My grandparents are my heroes. I am so proud to be their granddaughter, I miss them dearly and cherish every moment that I spent with them. They are never far from my thoughts and hope that I can be, (even if its only half) as amazing a person as they were. 

With love
