A few days ago, my beautiful Nan passed away. I am still in the midst of processing this loss. And it is going to take me a long time. I have always been very close with her and I can’t imagine my life with her. I love you Nan.
The below post is a tribute that I made and posted on Facebook on the 5th October 2020:
It’s hard to put into words what I feel at the moment, my heart feels heavy and I feel a little bit lost, last week my family said goodbye to a beloved member my amazing and beautiful Nan. Such a kind soul who was strong, inspirational, loving, caring and warm with the most beautiful and welcoming smile, every single person who walked through the door of that house was welcomed as family and that always meant so much to me.
She graced this world with her presence for 96 years and I am so lucky to have had her in my life, she was always so special to me and I love that we had such a strong connection, I will cherish my memories of her forever. I miss her so much already, especially that smile, those warm comforting hugs, her text messages and her face as she watched out the window and waved you off every time you left the house after a visit. Thank you for everything Nan, I’ll miss our conversations where I could talk to you about anything and everything. Love you forever Nan.
Rest In Peace Nan

In a couple of days we will lay Nan to rest, I’m thankful that I will be able to attend her funeral. Melbourne is still in lockdown with Covid restrictions and so attendance at funerals is limited to only ten people. I know it’s important to have the closure of a funeral and to lay them to rest quickly. It’s just a shame that all the people that she touched, those who cared about her, can’t be there. There will be a live stream, but it’s not the same.
