Gutted

I am completely gutted and feel like someone has ripped my heart out today....my Nan sold her house last year, it is a big house with a beautiful garden, it sold for £900,000. It is such a beautiful house but it was getting too much for my Nan who is in her 70s and on her own. Anyway today I have found out that the people that bought it who made such a big deal about how beautiful the house is have decided they are going to pull it down and build a five storey block of flats with glass front. Gutted so gutted....I have sent this letter to the Oldfield Park Residents campaigning against it....

Hi,
 
I just want to say that I am backing you completely against this project. I am disgusted that they are even knocking down Oakford. My Nan, Mrs Glisson lived there for many years. My Uncle George (Mr Glisson) even had his ashes scattered in the garden. He would be devastated if he was here today to see that his beautiful house is being knocked down to make way for some disgusting flats. When my Nan sold the house, the lady who bought it was over the moon and said she loved the house and the history of it, she was planning to build some tastefull houses at the back but was planning to keep the house! My Nan who is in her 70s sold the house as she felt it was getting too big for one person and hard to manage. Some people don't care at all about preserving old buildings, about history...its all about making money...heartless idiots!
 
We only found out the news today as my mother has been away on holiday. We have just phoned Nan in Devon to tell her the news and she is breaking her heart over this. I am gutted....I have a lot of childhood memories of Oakford and playing in the lovely back garden.
 
Anyway good luck with the campaign.
