Words. But which ones to use?

??????, ????. ? '?'

Sorry to hear that this time has come and finally you are here.
It sounds like you were also so very fortunate to be close to Grandpa. I cherish that time and will forever go out of my way with my sister's kids in the hope I can leave something so precious in their lives.

I got along with Mum's Dad like a house on fire. I suspect that if my whole family
were the same age and able to interact as equal peers, we'd have been great buddies.
Same lust for billion+ scoville-rated chilli, interest in art, knack for looking at the world
upside-down backwards through a telescope and sense of humour.

Unfortunately I'm afraid, if the two of us had been present for each of the jokes you mentioned, we'd have been killing ourselves laughing.. (Probably each be secretly miffed we hadn't thought of any zingers nearly as good ourselves. Laugh | :laugh: )

Some time after his passing Mum shared a remark she'd either overheard or had relayed to her. It's not as good as your Grandpa's material, but still plenty of fun.

"Hey! Careful... It still works ya know!"

Doing something or other, the nurse had made glancing contact with her elbow or the tray as she reached across the middle of the bed. Laugh | :laugh:
