Back in May or June, my english teacher assigned us a project called “What is Love”. We were asked to SHOW what love is through a presentation for the class. I decided there couldn’t be a better possible way to show people what love is then to tell them the story of my grandparents. My poppy Kenny O’Hanley, and my nanny Cathy O’Hanley were the absolute perfect example of what love is and what I believe it should look like.
Before I show you the video, there are a few things I’d like to tell you about. The first thing is something that my nanny developed called dementia. This is a loss of brain function that affects language, thinking, memory, judgement, and behaviour. It’s kind of like Alzheimer’s. It affects one’s social skills, and their ability to think and speak to the point where daily life becomes quite difficult. The dementia slowly started to strongly affect my nanny and she passed away this past spring. But she left the incredible number of people that knew and admired her with the memory of an amazing, self-less woman who’s smile they’ll always remember.
As for my poppy…I hope you can all sort of get a sense of what an incredible man he is. He stayed by my nanny’s side through everything. But hey, I’m not going to tell you everything about them. I’ll let the video speak for itself…….
Let me know what you think.
