I came home from a weekend at my dad’s house and when he dropped me and my brother off at my mom’s house he came in, that didn’t happen very often so I knew something was up. So when we got in my mom and dad sat me and my brother down and proceeded to tell us that our grandmother was diagnosed with cancer. I don’t think I have ever cried so much in my life, at the time I thought that when someone got cancer they were going to die very soon and I didn’t want my grandmother to leave me so soon. It was the worst feeling I have ever endured and I don’t ever want that to happen again. So after I found out about her cancer, I started to see my nan change after going through chemo and it killed me to see her be so weak. Its life changing to see someone who, when you were younger that you thought was a superhero be so weak and ill. After a couple years she beat cancer and was in remission, that I got that news I was the happiest I have ever been knowing that she was strong enough to beat cancer. That night I was also thinking that if she I strong enough to get through one of is not the worst thing in the world, I’m strong enough to get through anything I put my mind and heart

    So, my parents, which are your grandparents, were right by my side throughout the whole experience and never left my side. I was a baby at the time, so I didn’t know anything at the time, but my parents would tell me stories of what would happen, and it sometimes makes me laugh because it shows I was a tough baby. I am glad they never left my side and that shows me the kind of parents I have caring and loving. When I was growing up I saw how hardworking my parents were and never stopped working even when there was something wrong. Since, we owned a motel and sometimes when our maid wouldn’t come to make the rooms, my parents would go from like seven in the morning to like two in afternoon to make them clean.…

    “Grandma Cooper has cancer.” My heart dropped to my stomach, my eyes stung with tears, my lungs stopped working, and everything hurt. Cancer is a word that causes great fear, sadness, worry, dread, and many more terrible emotions. For me, I have heard the word since before I knew what the real fear of it was. I do not think I truly understood the sadness that the word could invoke when I was younger, I never understood until I was old enough to know that I could lose someone I was very close to and loved very much. My great grandma was the last person in my family to have cancer, and she had the most impact on my life.…

None of that changed as we grew older, especially when she became a grandmother. Any time the grandkids were around, at least one of them was sitting in her lap enjoying the love from their Nana. These were just some of the wonderful words spoken during her funeral…
