Today is a very very sad day for me, my friend Kath of nearly 30 years is dying and just after I sat down to watch the x factor last nuight she took a turn for the worse and started her journey.I chased to the ward and managed to have some time with her whilst she could talk.I cannot say ‘goodbye ‘ as it hurts too much and I have to believe she will still be with me every day, she is more than a sister,friend,soulmate,I love the very essence of her and we have been through life’s adventures together.She has been a second mum to my children and they too love her.Today I have been very qiuet and looked at the weather and the birds and the trees and relived our times in my head. So goodnight my dear friend, come and visit me often, let us laugh again at the absurdities in living, dream of what will be,find calmness and stillness in the silly world and I pray for your safe passage .
So for now I feel I have lost everything I will not be posting for a while until my mojo is back and my heart not so heavy,enjoy your families this Christmas and your friends and never take’ forever’ for granted.

So very, very sorry.
I’m so sorry for your loss. You are so right that she will be with you every day. Everytime you think of her and the effect she had on your life, she is with you. You are so fortunate to have had a friend like Kath in your life and I am sure as the wounds grow less raw, you will be able to smile at her memories again.
Wishing you all the best in this truly difficult time.
Oh, Chrissie, I am so sorry. I, too, had a friend that had been there with me through some rough patches in life, and passed just over month ago. She was caring, giving, appreciative, fun, full of life, and always interested in others. It just didn’t seem possible that she could be gone. I have her picture handy, and look at it often, and remember the wonderful person that she was and the impression that she left on me. I feel that the best way to honor her memory is to take all the gifts that she so freely shared with me and “pay it forward”. We can be that person to someone else that our friends were, and still are, to us. I can still feel my friend, Gloria’s presence in my life in so many ways, and I know that you feel that same way about your friend, Kath. Still, it hurts, and you’re right that we need to remember, even in the busy-ness of life, not to take one another for granted. I will be keeping you and your friend, Kath and her family, in my thoughts and prayers. Bless you for reminding us of the fragility of life and once again, to be reminded of what’s truly important in life.
Take care Chrissie and much peace to you,
