We knew this morning that God was calling your name,
In life we loved you dearly, in death we do the same.
It broke our hearts to lose you, you did not go alone.
For part of us went with you, the day God called you home.
You left us peaceful memories, your love is still our guide,
And though we cannot see you, you are always at our side.
Our family chain is broken, and nothing seems the same,
But as God calls us one by one, the chain will link again.
Yesterday was without doubt the hardest day of my life being there to see someone you love so dearly draw their last breath right in front of you. But I know that last breath also meant my Grandma breathed out the last of the pain and suffering that’s dogged her for the past year or so.
My Grandma lived to an incredible age of 94 and she was one of the most selfless, caring, forgiving and inspirational of women right up to the very end. Her presence alone could light up a room even if she was just rocking in her chair twiddling her thumbs.
It truly is an honour to be her grandson.
Although we’re all heartbroken and it hurts like hell it’s comforting to know you’ll be with Grandad Gordon again and no longer suffering. Thank you for all the beautiful memories Grandma, I love you. xxx
Thanks everyone for your supportive messages to my family. We really do appreciate every sentiment. Your support is helping us get through this very difficult time x
