(Sorry can't get this photo any bigger)

My dearest friend pass away on 26 May 2011. To think last week we were together, her son, daughter, grandson and another friend, enjoying spending time together, that I knew would be the last time I would see her alive. In a strange way I'm releaved that she will no longer be in pain, but my heart aches beyond belief.

We have been friends for 35 years, we have been through alot together, highs and lows, and we have both had alot of highs and lows over these years. There has been times when we have not spoken for a while, for no real reason other than everyday life, but we both know that we were only a phone call away.

She supported me when my mum died, when my brother died, she was their when I got married, had James, moved to Birmingham all big and eventful times in my life - and more. We talked about deep things as well as all the silly things that happens in our lifes. We'd phone each other up and cry over the phone, just to knowing that we where their for each other gave us some strength to deal with whatever issue we where going through - we where there for each other, offering unconditional love and support no matter what.

My godson and his sister and family have been truly amazing, I don't know how they have cope with all the day to day things that they have gone through over the past 8 weeks since she was diagnosed with Cancer.

So I've cried and cried and now I ache for a friendship that will never be, I will truly miss her and feel so honoured that she choose me has her best friend for life.

R.I.P. my good friend, keep smiling down on me, I'll miss you more than words can say.
