The saddest moments in life are not when you fail to achieve a goal, they are when you lose someone forever. 11pm last Wednesday was the worst hour of my life as I received a text message from my mum informing me of the death of my mother. I literally froze on seeing a peek at the message from my lock screen notification and took about 10 minutes before opening the full message. She was one of my closest relatives. For people with an age difference of about 80 years we were pretty close. I honestly had no idea how to take the news. She had been ill for the past year and honestly she looked like she was suffering in pain. Her death was her rest from all the pain but it was pain for my heart to know that I’ll never see her again. Writing this now I tear but I owe her a tribute on my blog. When I shared the news with a few of my friends, they were really supportive and I’m so thankful for them. They made me feel better. Lesson: Always be there for your friends who have lost someone, it’s really helpful.
There are so many things that I wanted to say in my speech at the funeral service but I couldn’t because I wanted to stay strong for you and not cry, to celebrate your FUN life. You were one of the best things that happened to me and I’ll never forget you. I’ll miss you grandma. So much. May your soul rest in Eternal Peace.
I wish I could play our moments forever but I can’t . You’ll always be my Queen . I’ll miss you forever , Grandma.
