My nana Agnes was different than everyone else. She was rare, like finding a $100 bill on the ground. She had a heart of gold. She was kind to everyone. She treated everyone with the respect they deserve. She was very close to her faith. She prayed every day and went to church as often as possible. Even when she was dying in the hospital, she still had private masses with the pastor. My nana was the person that influenced me to be closer with my faith. In fact, my nana impacted my life that most out of everyone I know. She babysat me a lot as a child because my parents were often busy working. She taught me how to read and write, she taught me prayers, and much more. My nana was bright and beautiful like a tall sunflower that shines in the sunlight. Even when she was dying, she always tried to make me laugh. She was the type of person that always tried to make others happy, even when she wasn’t happy herself. Her perspective on life influences me to make the best out of everything.
