From far away shores...there is always a final rest
My Great-Grandmother gave birth to my Nan just after arriving from Belfast, Northern Ireland, in 1925. My Nan left the shores of Australia just two times in her life - one trip was to New Zealand and the other was to Hong Kong. She lived in Brunswick, Melbourne, most of her adult life, after growing up in Rockley Road, South Yarra. She arrives at her final resting place tomorrow. I'll be there for you at 11am, Nan - through the sadness, there is some warmth of heart knowing you are next to Pop again...
