Me and my nan had a very special relationship, I was closer to her than my mum Ano that sounds bad but its true. I love my mum loads but we never really get on... I mainly lived with my nan from the age of 10 because she had cancer and it kept coming and going. I spent everyday with her sometimes ill skip school. I hated seeing her sick, sometimes she couldn't even get up out of bed and it was a struggle for her to eat. But the thing is we had good mermories when she was sick. We had a laught and I just miss your beautiful smile nanny. You was my everything and still are an ano you give up in the end because god took your son away from you 6 months before you passed away due to cancer. That phone call off the doctor was the one thing I didn't want to hear. Soon has he said she has not got long to live I knew I wouldn't be the same. Iv started drinking and smoking and its not good at all because I'm 14! Iv now stopped nan for you! Sitting next to you while you was dieing was the hardest thing for me! You have been my mum for the past 4 years also my best friend. And one day we will se each other again and i miss you so much nanny she!!! Love you so so so much!!! As you wish beauiful xxxxxxxx

Amelia you are so very young. Most young people don't get on with their mums and nans are known to lavish so much love and attention on their grandchildren that you could form an attachment that felt better. BUT. Your mum will always be your mum and no nan could take this place. I bet your mum could say that your nan was hard on her when growing up. That's why. Nans can't treat their grandchildren the same way they treat their own children. Because they have the sole responsibility of rearing them. The nature of the relationship is different. I never knew my nan so don't know any different. But I am a grandmother and I know now how different the relationship is. I spoil my grandchildren in a way I wouldn't spoil my own children.
I am sorry for your loss of your nan. But you will have some good memories FOREVER.
Cancer is a horrible disease. I lost my husband to cancer and I know how it feels to lose someone to this disease.
Please don't smoke or drink otherwise you will limit your life and this is bad for your health. Find other productive and positive ways to handle your grief and sorrow.
