An open letter to someone special:
Here goes, I am going to write an open letter, in fact I want to write a series of open letters to people I love, people I want to talk to but cant and people that are just not around to hear my voice.
Dear Grandma & Grampy,
I hope you are both well and doing great things now you are back together.
Where do I begin with this? I have so much I want to say to you both but I am not sure how I am going to put this into words.
Losing you both was and will always be the hardest part of my life. Grandma I was young when I lost you but not a day goes by that I do not think about you and all the memories created together. The perfectly made roast dinners (me being young & not actually liking them)but now I look back an appreciate how young and silly I was not to enjoy them that little bit more. All the sleepovers we had and those make overs we used to enjoy giving you so much.
Let me update you on whats gone on. So I made it through school (just about) maybe I could have done better and concentrated more. I gained myself a brother! yes thats right Charlie got married! as annoying as he can be its great to have an older brother in my life! Thanks to them both I now have 2 beautiful nieces and a nephew ! you would absolutely love them, they have amazing characters and the most bubbly personalities.
I grew up fast, fell in love at 14 and we stayed together for 8 years. I left school and got myself a job, adopted a dog, bought my first home then lost my first home. I moved back home and started a new beginning, Gained good friends and lost some along the way.
My life right now is full of, laughter, fun and happy times. There has been many obstacles in my way but I power through them and come out the other end.
You’ll be happy to know that Gramps was a massive part of my life. He was one of the men in my life that never disappointed me, was always there for me and cared for me. He was always around for his tea and constantly give me grief about my weekend antics! which I am sure you would have done the same if you was here.
Grandma I wish I had more time with you so you can share my life and experiences with me. Guide me in the right direction and give me words of wisdom because I know your full of them !
Its been 4 months since you passed. I wont lie, its been hard, really hard! You have no idea how big of a part you played in my life! so losing you was tough. However I’m glad your no longer in pain and with the women you love.
Tuesdays are still remembered as your day in our house, I always imagine walking through the door to the smell of homemade chips, sausages, eggs, beans and brown sauce! The sound of the chase playing on the TV with everyone trying to answer the questions!
I still work hard but also play hard to 😉 so nothing has changed there!
I want to thank you both. Thank you for showing me a huge amount of unconditional love, for being role models for me and my siblings. Thank you for the memories I have and that will stay with me forever. Lastly thank you for being a part of my life wether it was a short amount of time of long, you both have had a massive impact.
I miss you both dearly and I hope you are looking down on me and all the family. We all think about you everyday.
Your very proud grandaughter
