The worlds best grandparents

I lost my grandad in 2010 to pneumonia and it was the worst experience i have ever had. I was so close to my nan and grandad from day 1 of being born.. i went every weekend all weekend and had alot of love for them both and looked up to them both. i Adore them, they were always their when i needed them, i enjoyed spending time their since a very young baby and they were my second parents. my dad was very close to his mum and dad and when he lost my grandad it was heartbreaking but he had to stay strong for my nan as my grandad and nan were married for 54 years when he died. It was the worst year ever when grandad died.. nan lost weight.. she wasn't happy she was utterly heart broke and put on a strong face for us all. in January 2011 my nan became very ill and hospitalized. i knew this was the end. I kissed my nan in hospital the night before she died.. helped wash her down and when everyone went for a cigarette i told her to go to grandad and we will all be fine knowing she is with him. she couldn't speak as she had pancreatic cancer and within days died. the night after my nan passed away. I went to the hospital and honestly i was heart broke but my nan was looking up smiling with her eyes closed never ever will i ever forget that angelic, heart warming moment knowing grandad came for her. I miss them both so much everyday and even though it has got easier to live with every day but i still grieve. i stay strong for my dad as he lost 2 parents in a year apart. they were the best people i have ever known and taught me alot. i miss them both so much and would give anything to have them back.. i just cant wait for the day i see them once again.
