Missing her

Hi I am a 12 year old school girl and I have started year 7 this year in 2017. The hardest thing about my first day was my Grandma not being there to see me walk up the stairs.

She had bowel cancer after she quit smoking, she quit for me and my little brother when we were about 4 and 5. She said it was hard when she was having a cigarette outside and I wanted to play outside. When she was smoking outside and I was out there, she told me I used to cough a lot. My grandmother passed on last year from kidney failure caused from the bowel cancer. Everyday I miss her even more.
