Here is a little bit about my life. I was born into a loving family. 1 older sister, my dear mum and me. My dad unfortunatly walked out on us soon after i was born. It did not seem to make much impact on us..my mum did an amazing job at raising us with the help of my dear grandma. My mum went on to meet another partner and we was blessed with a younger brother. Oh he was the light of our all hearts. Life could not have been better until one day my mum fell ill. After a short term illness she passed away on my 13th birthday. Leaving me, my older sister and my younger brother. Myself and my sister were taken in by my grandma and my younger brother went to live with his dad. You see my grandma had always played a massive role in us growing up and really was such a support system for us after our mum passed away. We continued to fight through life with the love and support we had around us until one day my grandma at age 62 had a massive heart attack and never recovered. There really is not words for the devastation i feel, she was my best friend. My role model. The person I relied on the most. I have kept on fighting the fight. You see she really was the only person I truly had left on this world as a parental figure. I managed to graduate university last year but I am still working towards getting the job I want. My mum and grandma both have aspired me to always want to be better and do better for myself. But as I find this year it is coming up to my mums 10 year anniversary on my 23rd birthday and having not been able to afford to get my grandma a headstone..seen as my mums headstone is up for renewal I really would love to be able to get them a headstone in which they can share. It really means the world to me to be able to have a place of sanctuary somewhere to feel I can truly feel at ease with my pain and just offload my worried beside their place of rest.
