I don’t think I will ever get over the passing of my nan, she did so much for me over the years and I really miss her. This photo taken was on my wedding day 2nd May 2009. Looking back I am so incredibly thankful I was able to have her there with me that day. It was after my wedding she became unwell. Unfortunately, a lot of my guests came down with sickness and diarrhoea and it was through testing that it was discovered she had cancer. I remember the day I was told like it was yesterday, and I remember the weeks that followed too. She lost a lot of weight and almost became unrecognisable. Jack (my first child) was born on 20th August 2009 and a few weeks after he was born I took him to meet nan for the first time.
🙁 Nan passed away a month later. She went downhill incredibly quickly and I remember on the evening of the 8th October 2009 being told she had gone. I went upstairs and just cried, I loved her and she had gone. I hadn’t actually experienced any kind of loss before. Even 8 years later writing this and it still feels incredibly raw.
Sorry for the low post today, I do have so many happier dates, but with the anniversary coming up she is in my thoughts quite a bit.
