My Spirited Nan
Today, Friday 13 September, 2013, my maternal Grandmother, Nana Young, left this Earth and entered Heaven, greeted there by her 2 husbands, Poppy Young and Wally Gough, and her siblings and her many friends. Down here on Earth, I find it very difficult to stop the tears from falling from my eyes. To be accurate, I need to convey that my Nan was aged 93 years and 1 day and lived an eventful and mostly-rewarding life. In March of her final year of life, she handed in her restricted-driving licence, a reflection of her spirit for life and something that makes me incredibly proud. I am shattered to be entering this stage of my life although I am aware that to have had 44 years of life, with my Grandmother's influence, is a very fortunate position to be in. I am very grateful to her, for all she has contributed to my life, and she was very human, and my heart aches for one more hug.
