The late night movies with chips, the laughs, going for car rides in your old truck to watch the deer as they frolicked through the meadows, and helping you at the corner store where you worked; these were just a few of the very fond memories my mum has shared with us about her Nana. We too, Bently and I, have our own very fond memories of our great Nana.
Our mum and our family lost her, Nana, a couple of Christmas ago, it’s been a tough one, for all of us really. She was such a strong, brave, and loving person; believe it or not she even was terrified of cats at one point!
I helped her through it, she told me she was once attacked by a cat when she was very little and she had been so scared of us ever since.
The more and more she visited the more my mum and I helped her adjust to me; we showed her how loving and calm I was.
Wouldn’t you know it after only a couple visits she was so comfortable with me she would pet me, and I would come and sit behind her- it was my favourite spot you know. I learned though, to make slower movements when I was heading towards Nana, as to not startle her. We really became good pals, I miss her very much.
Regardless of person or species, when we loose someone so dear, it can be a very over whelming and sad situation for all involved. No matter how big or how small the ones we love leave a mark with us forever, and they are never truly gone.
We miss you so very much Nana, but know your in a better place now. I will see you one day when I too cross that rainbow bridge. Until we meet again, we love you SO much!
