Although jilted at the altar, granny Weatherall still held the love she felt for George this was shown with her first child who she named George. From this past experience granny Weatherall never allowed herself to love someone with such profundity as she once did. “Love was denied Granny the day she was jilted and she herself never dared to love.

It was not until Derek finally cracked and had told his mother that Morso was the only reason he was still alive and he was the one person that was always there for him and he was like family to Derek, that she realised there was nothing bad about Morso. The thing that made it the hardest was when his mother sent them to school almost as soon as they had returned.
