My gran was always on my side. She was straight talking but kind with it. I felt she understood me like no other member of my family she would listen and not judge and allow me to cry if that what I needed.

I brought up my son on my own. She was interested in him and always seen the good in him. When hard time hit her in her life her focus on other got her through.

She was cared for in a nursing home for the last 18months of her life. I should have fought harder to have her with me. She felt lost and alone in that place. I wish that has been different.

Thankyou Gran for everything.
