Marissa is a chosen name, I love it, and Chikaka is the name of her other (Japanese) grandmother

Congratulations on the birth of your granddaughter. She has been given such lovely names.

Condolences also on your loss.

You must have a confusing mix of emotions at the moment.

Take care. xxxx

Sad as it is that uncle Jim has died, his life for the past 12 years has had no quality to it, being blind, deaf and bedridden, and his passing has been anticipated for the last 5 years, so my overwhelming emotion is one of sheer delight at the birth of Marissa.

Many congratulations, and condolences to you and all your family Joy. You will be very busy now knitting away.

I have sent some cartridges off and put your reference number on the envelope. Have more to go soon - hopefully will help towards your air ambulance appeal
