    Last year the 9th of October I lost my grandpa.

    I think of him and how kind he was to people and animals. He always had wise words and advice to share. His last couple of weeks was spent in hospital, it was a sad time for everyone; my grandma, cousins, aunts and uncles. I still think about how I'm not going to see him again...

    My grandmother was gone, just like that. I cannot accept it. Maybe because I don't want to. That part of my life is no longer there and all I can do is be sad about it. I was the one that put her in bed. Every night, 11 pm. The emptiness that fills that space where my heart...
