The brightest star in the sky
I am now 20 years old and about to finish University, my Grandad passed away December 2011 and I am still struggling with his death now.
My Grandad had always been a huge part of my life and having been one of his two grandchildren my brother and I were always the apple of his eye. Coming towards the end of my degree brings back a lot of memories of my Grandad, as I lost him during my first semester of my first year. There are times when I cannot control my emotions and cry uncontrollably at the thought of never seeing him again, but there are also times when I find happiness in knowing how proud he would be of my achievements.
Although I will always miss him I know that he would not want me to put my life on hold and therefore as hard it is sometimes I just have to keep going and knowing that I would be making him proud encourages me to continue!
