Hey there, Brittany.

The anniversary of a loved ones death can be a very difficult time for us. It sounds like your Nana was a wonderful woman who meant an awful lot to you. It's understandable that you're missing her, and although she can't be with you in body, you can always keep her in your heart.

You don't have to be alone, right now or ever. If you need to talk to someone about how you are feeling it is okay to reach out. There are people in your life who want to be there for you, I'm sure, and TeenHelp is always here for you as well. Although some people may not understand why you still hurt over her loss, after 12 years, there will be people who do. Don't hesitate to ask for someone to listen.

You can't make new memories with your Nana, Brittany, and nothing can bring her back. But she never has to leave your memory; each memory you have of her is yours to keep, forever. Nothing can take the past from you. Remember her always and live in ways that make her proud.

Take care and let me know if you need anything, I'm just a PM away.

Someday I will be strong enough to lift not one but both of us.
I told you to be patient
I told you to be fine
I told you to be balanced
I told you to be kind

Hey Brittany.

I am so sorry to hear about your loss. It is obviously still really painful and that is understandable because you were close with your nan and she was an important person in your life. I lost my mum when I was really young so it was a while ago now. But you know what it still hurts as much but I guess you eventually get to a point where you realise what they would want for you. I can't say I know how you feel but I can say I know how it feels to lose someone so close. You will always miss her because she was so important to you. But I guess you have to try to look back at the positive times you spent with your nan. I bet you have lots so when you feel down try to think of these times. Those memories will stay with your forever and remind how special she was. Hold these close to you.

If you ever want to talk then you are more than welcome to PM me. Stay strong :-)
