RIP Ann-marie Alexander. Vocal Kop ST holder until taken away by cancer too soon. Just wish she could have witnessed a PO final win!

My grandma and grandad were taken upstairs two week between each other. 

 

They were together for 72 years Met each other at 14 stayed together until death  which was exactly 14 days apart,  guess my grandad wanted 2 weeks of peace before he went with her! Had a double funeral.

 

They watched the PO final together my gran had dementia and kept asking the line up every 5 minutes. She always called it Owlerton and not Hillsborough to this day. My grandad was as he called it "He was just a fan but honoured to have been chosen to follow wednesday"

 

I had a feeling we sould lose them this year and i wanted the play off final win so they got to see their club for last time back where we belong.

 

Both left us on the eve of the season, they were my family and my wednesday family too.

 

I know they will be watching down, i know my gran will be ripping the club a new one everytime we concede or lose, i know my grandad will be telling her to chill and accept she was chosen to follow wednesday and its not easy and we are allowed to concede.

 

RIP

Brilliant, love stories like that.

Shame we didn't win at Wembley for them and for the other lost owls.

Wawaw

I shall spare a thought for others but will be replaying all the happy memories of me and Dad at Hillsborough. Went with him basically every game from 1974 to 2012 at home. Still miss him and think of him at almost every game.

Love you Dad. Miss you.
