There are more quotes to come of course – from some of the bigger ‘kids’ – but I will save those for tomorrow night after the boat cruise. Suffice it to say that these children’s words, enclosed in her book (and rather brilliantly photographed by me – ha!) have culminated in the most beautiful, mutual, unshakable hug of family.

Oh, I can’t resist: here is Jared’s (Meg’s second grandchild):

    Just……beautiful.

    This 80th will have a thousand memories all wrapped up in one volume – and that’s not just the words and photos. It’ll be the spiritual memories of a very special lady and her loving family.

    How lucky she is.
