Request: ‘maybe you could make an imagine where one of y/n’s family member passed away and shes all sad and stuff and they go the the funeral together :)))) btw love your imagines

Warnings: could get sad


Life got pretty rough after my grandma passed away. It’s like our family started falling apart by the seems. I tried my best to stay positive but, sometimes it was just so hard doing so. My grandma would want for us to be positive so, that’s why I am the way I am now. The funeral was today even though she passed a few days ago. I wore a black dress with black flats and I brought my coat in case it got cold.

It did get kind of chilly in the valley, so I was better safe than sorry. Justin decided to tag along because he did have an emotional connection with her. The least he could do was pay his respects, you know?

“You ready?” Justin questioned, peeking into the room. 

I sighed before replying, “Yeah. I’m ready.” I shut off the light in the bedroom before walking down the stairs in a slow but, quick jog. Showing up late was not something I wanted to do, especially to a funeral. Justin opened the front door for me and I stepped out the house, to the car. I unlocked the car doors and decided to ride shotgun. Shouldn’t drive when you’re upset.

Justin locked the front door and came to the car, I started the car engine and didn’t say another word to me. I wasn’t complaining, I needed the peace and quiet. 

We arrived at the funeral home and I was immediately greeted by my family.

“We thought you weren’t going to show up since you have such a busy schedule.” My mom said, hugging me. “I’m glad Justin’s here. How are you holding up, honey?” She questioned Justin.

“I’m alright, so sad to see her pass so soon. Wish I got to know her better.” Justin replied. This was hurting him as much as it was hurting me. We walked to our seats and I could already tell it was going to be nonstop crying from me. My parents sat to the right of me, while Justin sat to the next of me. I stared at my grandma’s casket and it didn’t even hit me that she was gone.

It happened so soon, I had no time to even react. I bit the inside of my cheek, looking over at the picture they provided of her. Gosh, grandma was so beautiful when she was young. I hoped I’d age as gracefully as she did. The service began and the priest began talking.

“We are gathered here to say farewell to (name) and to commit her into the hands of God. First, let’s bow our heads in prayer.” The priest led the church in prayer for a good minute or two until the service continued. “We will now have the daughter, say a few words.” 

My mom got up from the pews and walked to the front of the chruch. My mom greeted everyone before saying what she had to say. While she was talking, you could hear the quiet sniffles and sobs of everyone. I still, shed no tears, as odd as it is to say. My mom finished her speech and went back to where she sat.

“We will now have the granddaughter, Y/N say a few words.” I got up from where I was seated and walked to the front of the room. I looked about in the crowd, taking in the faces before beginning to talk.

“Grandma was an amazing, wonderful woman. She did everything she could for others and never not thought about anyone else. I remember as a child, she would always knit sweaters for me, and how much I’d love wearing them. It’s sad knowing I won’t be getting anymore knitted sweaters,” I lightly chuckled, aiding in a comical relief. “Grandma was like my best friend. I could tell her everything and she would tell me her great advice. I’ll dearly miss those days. Grandma, if you’re up there, save a seat for me, yeah? I love you and I’ll see you soon.”

I went back to my seat and sighed heavily. I felt a little weight being lifted off my shoulders.

“You did good Y/N. Your grandma would be proud of you.”

I can’t deny it, I really missed her. A piece of my heart died when she died. This was going to be hard for me and everybody else here, including Justin.


A/N: I didn’t know how to end this, so I apologize..
