Why the name Upper Dhali?

"The Upper Dhali story began when I would listen to my beautiful daughter when she was a little girl, singing "Upper Dhali in da guy" instead of "up above the world so high, like a diamond in the sky” - Twinkle Twinkle Little Star.
It was our favorite song, & with our warmhearted memories, it was always going to be a heartfelt phrase that stayed within the family forever.
Then, when our beloved Nana passed away in May 2012, I carefully explained the happenings of death and how we would remember our Nana.
We decided she was in heaven and was creating rainbows during the day and dancing with the stars at night.
The name "Upper Dhali" was a perfect fit.
Born collectively through three generations of women in my family, the name "Upper Dhali" is now about memories, emotion and sentiment" xx Lou
