The journey of an aspiring fighter: A new chapter #8

Published On April 2, 2016 | By Helen Harper | Blog

This week has been one of the worst for my family. My grandad Norman Turner, the consistent head of the family since I was born, passed away.

It has been difficult, but it has brought the whole family closer together. The most important thing is, that it has taught us all that life is for living.

Grandad didn’t discover who he really was until later on in life, so in honor of him I have made a pledge to myself. It’s very simple, I just want to live my life to the fullest. I want to make the most of every opportunity I am given, even more so than I have done before.

Although life can be bewildering and uncertain, I know that with the strength of grandad I can get through anything.
