On the 14th December 2013 my grandad Ray passed away after having lung cancer and a brain tumor who was once a very healthy and active man. I always remember 1 day before my 12th birthday my grandad had a stroke which affect all my grandads left side and mobility which ment he needed assistance in every day life situations but ny brave grandad battled through after a year and a bit my grandad fell ill again started to lose his sight complain of breathing difficulty's and headaches started to go blind he eventually fell over and rang for a ambulance then went for a scan I am not sure which but the results came back as a lung tumor fluid on the lungs and a brain tumor 10 days after diagnostic my grandad passed away and 2 days before Christmas we buried him. 6 months on I feel I have no one I.feel depressed and even when I am happy deep down I arnt I am so self conscious and feel I cant get close to anyone I find it hard to bond Because I am afraid of losing it. I watched my grandad go from a fit healthy man fixing cars and tampering the clocks to passing away in pain layed in the living room with my nanna and mum on either side of him as we watched helplessly as he passed I just wish I could see him again I miss my grandad so much.
