Letter: 99 birthday wishes

On November 11, 2011, my grandmother, Laura "Nana" Grantham turned 99.

To the editor;

On November 11, 2011, my grandmother, Laura “Nana” Grantham turned 99. She is a long-time Cloverdale resident and member of the community.

Nana moved to Dogwood Gardens in the early 70s and only moved out a couple of years ago. She spent much of that time at the side of her late husband Ralph. They were active members of the Precious Blood Parish.

We shared much of this time together as a family, with some travelling across the country to be a part of this special day.

I am sure there are many of you who have had the pleasure to cross paths with Laura, and we are pleased to share this story with you so all of us can take a moment to smile for Nana.

Happy birthday!
