Many of you have been so kindly asking me about my Aunty Jean.
I had mentioned in a newspaper and on my podcast that she was poorly with COVID-19.
Aunty Jean passed away yesterday morning.
Eldest of 3 sisters. Aunty Jean was in her 80s but had so much living to do.
Aunty Jean never ever ever did anything but bring sunshine in to my life.
She lived near my boarding school and would pop in as often as she could to make sure I had Quavers, Pot Noodles, Parma Ham, a bit of cash, knowing how far from home I was.
Aunty Jean lived in and around sport all her life and was so kind to everyone she met.
Kindness, generosity of spirit, a giver of time.
It has knocked all of us in the family.
My cousin Claire has lost her Mum who had so many more years to give.
Aunty Jean never got to meet her newly born Great Granddaughter.
We will all miss you Aunty Jean.
Aunty Jean asked us not to cry with her final words.
We love you so much.
We offer our condolences to the Greenwood family at this time.
