If the people we love are stolen from us, the way to have them live on is to never stop loving them. Buildings burn, people die, but real love is forever.
Losing a loved one whether it be a family member or a friend, is never easy, in fact it can be devastating! You feel like your world is falling around you. You feel like a piece of you has been ripped off and that you’ll never be whole again.
It still feels like yesterday when we lost a mother, wife, sister and nana, but it was ten years ago. She was the head of our family keeping everything and everyone together. Whenever you went visiting you’d be feed and watered, usually leaving with bags of food or other goodies. She would never let you go without.
She stood in my corner. In all of our corners ready to fight our battles with us or for us at times.
They say that time is a healer, which it is but I still think of her everyday and wish I could see her one last time. I never got to say goodbye and that still bothers me today.
There is so much that I wish she could have been here for. My wedding, my cousins’ weddings. Her great-grandchildren being born and growing up. She would have loved every minute.
I don’t believe in god and heaven but deep down I hope that there is something after death and she can look upon us, smiling with us and probably giving us hell when we’ve done something bad.
Love you always Nana
Until we see each other again
