Goodbye B.

My dear friend B. passed away this afternoon, with her family beside her. Barely 17 days from diagnosis to passing but really, the shortness was a blessing.

As time dims my memory and days get forgotten and muddled up, I shall always remember her onthis date for what has, in essence, become her spiritual birthday.

We shall all miss you B. but have many happy memories to run through, not least of all some of the fun walking days. Here she is on one of our walks from last summer, on the left. xxx

  6. Oh DC I am so sorry. It was quick but in the end it took away her pain but also a blessing which gave her those last precious 17 days to say her final goodbyes which if it had been an accident or heart attack she would never have had the chance to do. Remember the good times and she will always be there with you especially on your walks.

  13. I visit all the time but I don't always comment. Today though I wanted to say I'm sorry for the loss of your friend. Know that she'll always be with you, in your heart and in your memories, and in that sense, they are never truly gone.

    1. Angela, Penny and 1st Man, Thank you. I am rarely down when someone dies, as odd as that sounds, as I believe it is just another phase of being. We did have lots of laughs and fun and for that, I am grateful. We shall still walk and remember her.
