R.I.P Sue xx

30th July 2012

Today I stood behind the family of one of my friends united in our grief at her passing. Sue was a very strong woman and always full of life.  Always quick to give an opinion her voice strong, even in a whisper people a few feet away could hear her. It was weird being in the same room, or chapel- with her and not hearing her loud thunderous laugh.


Standing besides a childhood friend who I havnt seen for many years I  felt angry with my self as I realised just how much she has always meant to me. As we parted we promised to stay in touch, I hope we are able to take a few hours of a day to do just that.


I am going to miss Sue, I can visualise her walking through the city centre – swapping clothes she had bought  weeks before – demanding her money back. We holidayed together- drank together – had many a good party when we lived in the same neighbourhood. We even fought together side by side along with a few others who have passed. I look too her husband and know how much he loved her and how losing her so suddenly has devasted him.


Makes me question my own mortality and as I drive home I am taken back to a time in my life when things were so much easier. Her children used to sleep in my home – and mine hers.

I will miss you terribly Sue may you walk with the angels and rest in peace my friend Xxx

Taken to young aged 57 yrs…..
