Today we said goodbye

Today was my Grand father's funeral, he passed away on New Year's Day. The last three weeks have been nothing like I've ever felt before. I even sat my final year exams during those weeks, and wrote one of my assignments during the week that he was dying. I've also fallen out with people at University, and had a re-surge of my PTSD symptoms. Which I'm getting under control, slowly. I've had nothing but help and support from my friends and teachers.

My 6 year old DD was there today, too. It was a long funeral service, a church one (he was a verger), and the full last post because he was in the RAF for a long period of his life.

I don't know why I'm posting this, except maybe because I'm closing a very important chapter of my life, and I wanted to share that. It's heart breaking and strange.

My grandmother was cremated today.

It's horrible isn't it, I've spent the last 2 weeks just feeling so sad. And I know this feeling is going to last for a long time (it took months after my grandad died to feel normal again).

I'm sorry for your loss.

Sorry for your loss. It really is. But I have to pick myself up, and get on with my assignments and get the grades I need for my masters.

My Grand mother passed 18 months ago. They were married 60 years.
