Hi everyone , as many of you know I lost my much loved husband , Geoff, on April .9th. Since then my family and I have tried hard to celebrate his life more than mourn his death , of course we are only human and so there have been tears and times of sadness but we’ve held each other up and overall been able to carry on remembering him every day and smiling as he would’ve wanted . At 1.44 this morning , 6th May , on the day of the coronation of King Charles 111. Our own little prince , Jude Geoffrey , came into the world , our third great grandchild 😊 I hope his first photographs cheer you up , he was crowned by the midwives and presented with his royal gifts Geoff served in the grenadier guards and loved pomp and ceremony he would be thrilled to have this latest addition to the family come into the world on this historic day . I hope that somewhere in some way he’s sharing in our joy 😊

A beautiful post , thank you and heartfelt congratulations to you all on the birth of Jude Geoffrey - he must be one of the very first to be born on coronation day! ❤ 💜 💛 💚 🧡
Many congratulations to you and your family Val. A memorable day to welcome a new addition to your family. Love and best wishes, Carole xx
What a wonderful gift for you and your family I am sure Geoff will be sharing all the joy with you, congratulations on the birth of Jude Geoffrey ❤️💐 xxx
Aww. Beautiful little boy 🙂❤️xxxx
That's so touching I almost feel like crying. Many congratulations to all of you. What a lovely thing to happen. May young Jude Geoffrey have a long and happy life. xxx 💖💖💖🎆🎆✨✨
I’ve been crying tears of joy all morning Alberta . I can’t tell you how proud Geoff would’ve been to have this happen today especially as Jude Geoffrey wasn’t due until the 18th . It feels , as I said when Geoff passed , that some higher power is walking beside us every day , lifting us when we stumble 😊 xx
😂I'm definitely sniffing xxx
Apologies for missing your news about your husband , I am so sorry. I so approve your attitude but — as you say — it is still very hard. Thank you so much for sharing it with us.
And so pleased about Jude Geoffrey. Wonderful news.
Love and hugs
many congratulations on the birth of adorable Jude Geoffrey . I’m sure his great grandfather is looking on with pride and great joy

Welcome Jude Geoffrey, lovely boy. My late husband was Geoffrey, don’t think it’s very common now. Hope you can enjoy new grandchild, and he helps you at this difficult time. I don’t have any grandchildren or siblings. Very best wishes, Jean x
Thank you Jean , no it’s not a common name now but when it was suggested by my granddaughters partner soon after Geoff died we all thought it had a certain ring to its even though none of us particularly liked the name Geoffrey 😂To everyone else he’ll no doubt be known as Jude but to me he’ll always be Jude Geoffrey 🥰. I hope you have good friends to take the place of the family you don’t have 🙏 xx
That's proper kingly!
That's great to have some nice news for a change!
Oh he is just gorgeous.
Gorgeous Cute Baby his Great Grandfather must b thrilled. Bernardine
Congratulations to u all.so lovely xxxx
Oh, wow! What wonderful and very special news, after your terrible loss. A truly special arrival, and such impeccable timing! I wish you and your family much joy with your lovely new addition. Here's to happier times for you! xxx
I’ve not been on the forum for a while and missed your post about your husband. I am so very sorry for your loss but what lovely news about young Jude Geoffrey. Splendid timing on his part😊Many congratulations to you and your family on his safe arrival x
Congratulations on the birth of your great grandson. A great day to be born and a memorable occasion. He will bring you so much joy in memory of Geoff xxSheila 💕
Many many congratulations Val .Welcome Jude Geoffrey wishing you good health ,joy and many blessings.
I feel sure your Geoffrey must be looking on with huge pride and sending you all his love.Little Jude Geoffrey looks wonderful in his crown! And I see he has a packet of wildflower seeds to grow. These would make a lovely memorial for your Geoffrey as well as for the coronation.
They say, 'He moves in mysterious ways,' and this does indeed feel like yet another example of a higher power stepping in.
Blessings to you and your family, especially your new little prince!
yes the wildflowers will no doubt be planted in my garden and hopefully return every year to remind us of a very special , if bitter sweet , time I’ve been trying to think of ways to commemorate Geoff and I think those seeds might be the start of a lovey peaceful corner where the family can sit and enjoy the memories 😊 xx

I bet he's watching from above with a great big beaming smile on his face. Your new grandson is absolutely gorgeous 😉
Congrats !! What a little ray of sunshine . Hope you can see lots of him.
Congratulations what wonderful news. He’s gorgeous. So sorry about your husband. His name will live on though which is a lovely tribute. May 6th was my mum’s birthday too. Take care & best wishes to you all x
And what a ray of sunshine he is , he's beautiful and I love the hat. I am sure Geoff is watching over you and the family he will be thrilled to bits with this latest addition x
Oh that's so beautiful. And they say for everyone that leaves us. A new life has begun. Hope your keeping positive. Grief comes and goes like waves and even now 33 years after my Mom passed away a certain song she loved always makes me emotional. Hope you have Sunshine and enjoy your day. Take care. Brian
Congratulations to all! 🎉 Beautiful boy. Jude is a great name and very fitting that Geoffrey is his middle name.."Hey Jude, don't make it bad, take a sad song and make it better". It really couldn't be better. Lovely ❤️ xx
hey Jude, welcome little Prince to such a warm and loving family who love you so much. Congratulations to you all. A beautiful reason for you all to be strong and to cheer you in times of despair. Take care 🦊xxx
I’m sure he’s with you in everything you do. That’s how I think about my Husband. We will see them again one day. ❤️
I really hope so 🙏 x
So sorry to hear that you lost your dead husband. . Congratulations on the birth of your third Grandchild, gorgeous photos , much love😍😍
Jude Geoffrey is a gorgeous wee soul, and I love his hat! Congratulations to all his loving family. I'm sure there will have been a lot of mixed emotions around his arrival, as the loss of his great-grandpa is still so raw, but I really admire your strength and know that this will bring you much joy. (by the way, I really like both of his names 😉) xxx
What a fab day to be born. Congratulations on the birth of Jude Geoffrey. I’m sure Geoff is looking down and enjoying it all. Xx
wonderful and congratulations on your young monarch . The woman priest at my mothers funeral spoke of the circle of life and (whilst she didn’t know my mum and was rather irritating) I thought that a good concept to keep in mind to help with the pain of grief and still look forward .
Big hugs to you x and best wishes for the newest member of your family
How wonderful for you to post such lovely news.may your god. Bless and keep him safe his whole life.and continue to bring you comfort and strenghxx

Congratulations to you & your family on the birth of your new Grandson. He is beautiful 🙂
Oh my, many congratulations to you on the birth of your great grandson. Little Jude is adorable and what an auspicious day he was born on. I am so very happy for all of you and I bet Geoff must have had a sneaky hand on his date of birth!! Much love. xx ❤️
Love that you are celebrating Geoffrey's life now another celebration!
He is a beautiful boy, resplendent in his crown, congratulations. xx
