Last night I learned that an old friend had died a few weeks ago, Chris was only a few months older than me, apparently he went to sleep one night and didn't wake up. What is equally scary, my mother told one of my girls that this is the fourth death this year of a person I knew from school.
I now have a really close friend, whose husband is losing his battle with a rare cancer, so please when you enjoy your Christmas tomorrow, spare a few moments for those of us who are thinking of other things.
For a long time, I have thought that a film that should be shown at this time of year is "The little matchstick girl," then children would realise how lucky they are.
A great friend and a lovely lady, needs our prayers for her husband to recover. So they can have Christmas together. I know what it's like to lose somebody you love at this time of year, a lady I loved had one wish and that was too share Christmas with me. Sadly, she was taken from me before we had the chance. I am sorry Faye, love.
