This Irish Woman’s Search For Her Sick Grandmother’s Old Friends Is The Sweetest Thing You’ll See Today


An Irish woman is now searching for two friends of her sick grandmother, who she hasn’t seen in 40 years.

Nicolle Munson’s grandmother and grandfather lived in London 40 years ago and met two great friends while there. However, over the year’s, as Nicolle’s grandparents returned to Ireland, they lost touch with the couple.

According to The Irish Independent, Ann and David Munson lived in Acton, between London and Shephard’s Bush at the time. Their friends’ John and Cathy worked alongside Nicolle’s grandparents in a wallpaper factory and sewing factory, respectively.

Their granddaughter has very little to go on in her search for these old friends, she isn’t even sure if the couple are still in England or if they have returned to Ireland. All she has is this one picture of the couple with her grandparents:

Nicolle made this heartfelt appeal to find her grandmother’s friends, to bring her some joy while she is in hospital:

My grandmother is very sick, she’s been in hospital for the last five weeks. She’s scared. I need to find this couple before anything happens.
