A Little Bit About Grieving

My Nan passed away 2 days ago, Saturday 24th 2016 at 3:15.

Sounds official, sounds final.

At this current time with tears in my eyes i write with heartache and pain. Grief can be overwhelming but we must not forget that life is for living. Its to be cherished, all to often we take things for granted. Like frustration or impatience, intolerance and differences of opinion.

When it all boils down to it, we will all be in the same situation. A coffin.

Now, i dont actually know or claim to know what happens after we die. As frustrating as it is i have been grasping at straws trying to find answers which do not come at all.

My dreams are nothingness, my soul screams for it, my heart yearns for it and nothing comes. One thing for certain is that life is fragile, she was fine Friday and Saturday morning issues happened and the sad day when she gave up her fight.

I only write because i dont actually know what to do, im lost.

But i have a loving family who support each other and love. I feel my nan around me everywhere and i just hope there is an afterlife and we will be reunited with her and my grand dad.

For now, i dont know what else to say. Even writing this has tortured my soul and turned me into a sobbing mess.

Sleep tight nan.

Peace and Love!

    1. I agree with you there, it’s been 2-3 weeks and. I think it’s starting to ease but there’s still those pangs of sorrow. we have sat around and talked about her life and found out things we didn’t even know!


  1. Remember her happiness and what she was like. It will get easier as time goes on, think of all the good times you had together. R.I.P to your nan. I hope you start to see her for the happy good times. Remember she loves you and so do we all.Xxxx

  2. My heart is with you…Your nan passed on my grandma’s birthday. I no longer remember the date that my grandma passed away, but I always remember her birthday and most certainly how much she meant to me and the others around her. She still lives in me, and I feel that along with the grief of her loss. Your nan will always be with you whether you’re reunited or not. Peace to you…


  3. You rightly said life is about living’! We often find ourselves in situations where we’ve lost our loved one & we just don’t know what to do. We develop a mental block. I have lost 6 members of my extended family in recent years & have grieved every single loss. You just have to cherish & remember the fine moments you’ve had with your Nan. She’s always got an eye out for you. Remember her the way she’d want you to remember her. Live the life she wanted you to live. Remember that she’s right inside you & feel free to have a chat with her. God bless!


  4. Dany, I’m so sorry about your loss – for the loss of your Nan. “There is no right or wrong way to grieve,” someone said to me at a family funeral nearly 3 years ago. There have been many things I have done with the help of my friends to ‘work through’ my grief. Having a journal and writing my feelings and thoughts on paper day by day helps. Whatever helps I’d say. Take care.
