Some words to say for my Nan?

Im just after some advise really on what to do.

I feel like i want to say some words at my nans funeral but im not too sure if i will have the courage to get up there or not.

My mum, dad and nanna went on holiday for 2 weeks to the dominican republic and on the last day in the middle of the night my nannna passed away, my mum and dad were with her but it was very sad and unexpected.
I especially wanted to say a few words to my mum and dad to thank them so much for being with her and tell them that i am so proud of them.

Anyway the words that have come to me are:

Words cannot explain how i feel right now, Nanna touched everyones lives in a special way and when we grieve today we will all come together with the memories we have of her

I would like to take this moment to thank two very special people, Mum and Dad. I want to thank you for giving Nanna such a wonderful last 2 weeks and i think everyone here today finds it easier to cope knowing what a fabulous time she had with you. Im so proud of you both for being able to cope in such a horrible situation and im thankful that you were both there with her in her final moments.

Anyway i dont know, i feel like i need to write some more about my nan etc. I know that someone else like the priest will do the eulogy and i dont think id have the courage to talk for that amount of time. But please help guys.
I was the clossest grandaughter to her and i feel for some reason that i should say something.

Thank you xx

I am in the same situation right now. My nanna passed away ver unexpectedly, and much like you, although i’m only 17, i was the closest granchild and feel like i should say something at the funeral.
I hope yours goes/went alright. And hope i manage to do my nan proud.


Oh its so sad isnt it! i went to see my nan today and it was so horrible. It didnt look anything like her and it was so sad.
I was thinking of maybe doing it in a letter or something like that. i really dont know, its so hard and i feel so scared! when is your nans funeral? Mine is on Monday Hope you reply.

She was your age once.

It sometimes helps to remember that your Nan was your age once, and to think of everything she lived through and everything she achieved.

Hope this poem helps.

Grandma, you were just a girl,
So many years ago.
You had your loves and had your dreams,
You watched us come and go.

You watched us make the same mistakes,
That you had made before,
But that just made you hold us tight,
And love us all the more.

We haven’t always thought about
The things that you have seen.
To us you’ve just been ‘Grandma’,
No thought of who you’ve been.

But we remember now in love,
Your life from start to end,
And we’re just glad we knew you,
As Grandma, and as Friend.

my nanna recently passed away it was unexpected to the family and was a devistating shock for us all! my nanna was an amazing person she bought me and my sister up when my dad died 10years ago so i want something to say that shows she was a beautiful kindhearted person who we will miss very much

WE are thinking of you

My grandmother also died quiet unexpectly the other day and her funeral is friday. This is how I found you. Yes like myself I am the oldest grandchild and need to say something. I think we celebrate her life, a few good things that happened to you and your family. I do think if we can we must talk about the great times they shared with us. As I believe that is the way my grandmother would have wanted it.
The pain we share you cannot explain, and now I know how others whom have lost someone close feel.
