Dear Great Granny Mary,
This here is a… not so private letter to you, despite how it’s one you’ll never read I still feel that it is one which needs to be written. I may not have known you, and you may not have known me or the respect which I hold for you (having heard about you from the stories told by others) but those storytellers know and now whoever else that reads this will to.
There are so many things that I wish I could say to you. Really, I just wish I’d been able to meet you, to hear your stories and just be in your presence. I wish I could thank you for giving me the most favourite members of my family and for giving me my Nan – who I literally could not live without.
I suppose this short letter is just that… a thank you. Sadly it’s a thank you that you’ll never get, not really. A thank you letter for giving me a Nan who means the world to me and for showing me that it’s possible to love, respect and admire someone that I’ve never actually met – that person being you, obviously. 🙂
