HEARTWARMING: Chalfont St Peter mum thankful for knitted gifts left on daughter’s grave

A Chalfont St Peter mum would like to pay special thanks to the person responsible for leaving knitted gifts on her daughter’s grave.

In the early days of February this year, mum Rebecca Gaskell noticed someone had left a knitted gift on daughter Grace’s grave who sadly passed away on November 2, after losing her brave battle with a brain tumour. 

More gifts kept on appearing on special occasions such as on Grace’s birthday, Valentine’s Day, and Mother’s Day but it was all done anonymously.

Speaking to ChalfontsNews, Rebecca said: “I have no idea of who it might be, whoever it is, they obviously want to stay anonymous which is totally fine. On Grace’s group on Facebook, I always thank them and upload a picture of what they gifted but no one ever came forward. 

“I find it really heartfelt that whoever is doing it wants to stay anonymous they don’t want a big deal made out of it and they know that what they’re doing is creating a massive amount of happiness.  

“They absolutely warm my heart every time I go up there and I find a little knitted gift it’s just amazing. One is just beautiful that they are visiting Grace, which is really important to me and the other thing is that they are doing this out of the goodness of their heart, they don’t want anything for it, and it just makes me really happy.

“Whoever is doing this is an amazing person I totally respect the fact that they want to stay anonymous.”
