For My Nan

I have some very upsetting and sad news – my nan passed away at the weekend. She had a stroke and fluid on the lungs which she couldn’t recover from, and died a day later. I don’t know what to say, I was extremely close her as was the rest of my family and we are all still in shock. No words can describe how I am feeling at the moment, I’ve never known a pain like it. I had to share a photo of her and a eulogy I wrote:

Nan (right)

To live on in others hearts

a light of love never to die,

To be alive as a memory

an idea let loose in the sky,

To give comfort and even hope

through the tears we cry,

To be a breath of air always

with wings to freely fly,

To still be joined with those you love

is not to die.

Jeg vil elske deg for evig og alltid. ♥

(Norwegian for: I will love you forever and always)
