Ms. Jana

Last week, one of the most influential women in my life died. Today, her family and friends will honor her memory. Because I can’t be there (and it breaks my heart) I want to honor her here. This is for you Ms. Jana.

You taught me all the best swear words. You taught me how to be a woman who knows her own mind and isn’t afraid of speaking it. You taught me how to love hard and loyally and fiercely. You taught me how a best friend acts, because you were my Mom’s very best friend and stood by her through thick and thin. You taught me how to own the macarena on a dance floor. You taught me to laugh as much as possible. You taught me about being true to who I am.
Who I am is someone who will miss you very much and will carry the things you taught me in my heart for as long as I live.
I love you Ms. Jana and I always will. Thank you for loving me back.

  1. I am sorry for your loss , loosing your loved one is the biggest struggle.I would know because a huge earthquake hit my homeland and life as i knew it changed, so yeah its all about being grateful and real because life is a mystery.

  2. When someone writes something that comes right from the heart is much prettier. Thank you, because even though it’s for miss Jana, you shared with us.
    Those words made me understand and almost feel your feelings for her! 😀

  3. I’m really sorry for your loss, but I have to say that I’ve never been as confused as I’ve been while reading your post as my name is Jana and I love teaching my friends how to dance la Macarena. Also I was feeling you were describing my personality as well. Casualities.
    But as I’ve said, I’m really sorry for your loss. Xx

  4. I know exactly how you feel… Lost a loved one just a few weeks ago. But remember, just like a story, the ones we love never truly leave our hearts… R.I.P K
