My beautiful nana

by Mellissa Stubbings

I lost my nana a week ago! The saddest day of my life. I was there as she slipped away:(. My nana was like my mum, we had a great relationship. She used to tell me all the old stories when she was young and I would love to hear them, over and over again! She had a wicked sence of homour & could make anyone laugh..her laugh was contagious!
She was always proud of me & had nick names for me! She believed in me & loved hearing my stories about my work. She loved a right old gossip ( will miss this dearly) she made the best tattie soup there is...& we shared a passion for dolly Parton! I knew my nana for 24 years, only 63 years old when she died..I don't think it's sunk in just yet, keep going to phone her- phoned her nearly 3 x a day! I'm lost without her words of wisdom & advice! The day I lost my nana is the day I lost my best friend! But she made me who I am today & I carry her deep within me, until we meet again my beautiful nana!
Very honoured to have such a beautiful woman with her heart love me so much from the very start now I will love you until my dying day

Blessed kind Nana

My Mother Felipa was the epitome of grace, love, kindness , knowledge and above all love of family. She took over the role of Matriarch hen our Daddy died. She was tough kept us all in line.. Her greatest request was be united in love and family... Never tun your back on your brothers and Sisters... Always make up and don't let others come between your sisters and brothers !!! Yes we are still One Family United in love and caring for one another!!

Melissa I am sorry for your loss of your dear nana from your life. Some family members just leave such a precious imprint in our lives and in our hearts and we just feel the loss so much more. It is all those shared times together, and memories and conversations that is what we miss when our loved ones leave us. Your nana was quite young still. I am 64yrs. My husband died from cancer 8 months ago and he was 65yrs. Which I feel is still a very young age to lose someone from our life. There is so much to miss when our loved one dies. We feel EMPTY. and LOST. It is such a profound LOSS. Each person has their own special personality and character and we will miss this. Our loved one's made such a valuable contribution to our life and made us the people we are today. WE will feel lost without them. I hope you go on to have a fulfilled and happy life.
I am from Scotland and share a love for tattie soup. I live in England and miss badly those SCOTCH PIES and square sausage I remember well from my childhood. May our memories continue to make other's happy.
