My Last Memories.

Extracts from this document...


English Mrs Hughes Lewis Janes11A My Last Memories Throughout my life there are many memories that have affected me and ones that I remember in particular. The memory that I am going to write about has only become a memory quite recently - but it will be a memory that I will never forget. I feel that I should write about it as it has had a massive emotional impact on me as well as my family. My grandmother 'Martha Williams' was the most influential and touching woman. She was always there to listen, guide and help others whenever she could. So this is in loving memory of her. Martha Williams was born 15.9.1910 and sadly passed away 26.9.2002, which made her 92 years of age. I have no exact first memories of her as she was always with us. My mother said she was like a fairy godmother, always there with a kind smile and with a shiny pound coin in her busy hand waiting to give to us. Before she went into hospital she was still the same old' Martha. ...read more.


She had lived through the sinking of the Titanic, Two World Wars and the Millennium. She also survived breast cancer and had a hip replacement, which many people thought she would not recover from, but she did, and she lived for another twenty years. So if she were to write this essay she wouldn't run short of things to say. Although it wasn't noticeable, she was very ill. The cancer that was in her breast many years ago had started to spread into her kidneys and brain. She never complained about the pain until the day she died. I think it had become so bad she had to tell someone. This news had been kept from me until about a month ago. There were no words to describe how I felt when I found out. In a way I am glad I never knew because I don't have a memory of her when she suffered but on the other hand if I knew perhaps I would have done more and appreciated her to a greater extent. The last memory I have of my 'Grandma' is the last time I ever saw her. ...read more.


Grandma You were always there when I needed you, My glowing light to guide. You knew what to say, and right on cue, Someone who I could trust to confide. Your face would always be full of glee, As you laughed and chuckled away With Rosie, the dog, sat on your knee, And Happiness shining like a Sun's dazzling ray. A path is worn where you walked with grace, Religiously every day, At Bill Harry Court you became a familiar face, Always so joyful and gay. We know you're watching from above, Through winter's cold and summer's hot, The seasons change, but not our love, And you will never be forgot. I will never forget Martha Williams, my grandmother. There are so many memories and feelings that will never be lost. I am so proud to be her Grandson. She has made a substantial effect on my life, she was graceful, jolly and never without a smile. Everybody always said she had a lovely face and she did. Even though all of these little memories meant nothing then, they mean the world to me now. In loving memory of Martha Williams, dear mother, grandmother and great grandmother. You will always be remembered. _________________________ ...read more.
