Katrina's Important Thing
By Katrina
Genre: Non-fiction Level: Elementary 4-6
Category: Student Examples

Katrina?s photoMy Nana Juli died of breast cancer when I was seven, but she was the most precious thing to me in the whole world. Even though now she is gone, I still feel her close to me. Her death has also brought my mom and me closer together and helped us to talk and communicate with each other better. My Nana Juli was an artist. Her favorite form of art was watercolor. I have many memories of us sitting with nature surrounding us, and of me, helping her with her artwork. I think that I got my creativity from her. My Papa Leo is very different. I remember him being very strict when I was young, but now he is very sweet and gentle, even though he always teases me! My Papa Leo is now living in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. I visit him every Christmas with my mom and my uncle, who also live in Louisiana. My Papa Leo was a professional hockey player and a paratrooper for the Air Force. I love my Papa and my Nana, and I know that they will always be with me, wherever I am.
