My hero!

by Tamika Cousins



My Nana was a such a wonderful person, she was such a good mother, sister, Nana, friend and much more. She was happy all the time. Nana became a teacher then moved on to be a principal and she so good at it, lets just say she was good at everything she did. She became very sick with cancer and it hurt me so much to see her like she was because i knew every second was one step closer to losing her. Nana was the most important thing to me and now i have lost her because of her cancer.

Nana was born on the 29/6/1952 and we lost her on the 31/5/2013. It was very hard to take in what had happened but i guess she will be happy and out of pain.

Nana loved shoes, makeup, fans, jewelry and lets not forget she loved matching everything. The one thing i will miss most about her is going to be how she made everything okay and was always there when i needed her the most. And if i could take everything back it would be disappointing her. I feel like i have lost everything and i don't know what to do.

I'm also gonna miss the times we spent together like when she took me shopping, get my hair cut and all the other fun times we spent together.

Lets just say I'm gonna miss her all together and there is no one that could replace what a wonderful Nana i had!

Tamika I am sorry for your loss of your Nana. It is all the fun things you did with her and that bond and interaction that helped you develop your relationship and this is what hurts when our loved ones die.
I feel the same way, but I am also a new grandmother and so have to start to make memories with my grandchildren that they will have forever. Life is a mixture of happiness, laughter, and sorrow and we have to keep balanced. Enjoy the good times and learn from the bad times. Take one day at a time and when you go through life make as many memories that will help you get through your grief and also build a life that will help you go on. You can keep a journal and write in this all the memories of life with your Nana so you don't lose any memories and this will comfort you in those bad days when life is difficult. You can even write in the form of letters to your Nana and you will be amazed at how your thoughts flow. It is also a good way to start healing from your loss.
