In Memory of Pat ..

Hi Everybody,

They say that if you go through life and can count the number of true friends that you have on one hand then you are very blessed and rich to have these friends in your life.

And I mean true friends that are always there for you when you need someone to talk to and they love you for what you are ... with all your faults. Some one to share your laughter and tears along the way.

Throughout my life I have made two two truly special female friends to whom  I am not ashamed to say "I Love You ...."

I may not meet up with them every week but the next conversation will always follow on naturally from the last one and both have been steadfast and loyal to me in my life time friendship with them.

One of them is Christine Kilvington a friend for 47 years and the other is Pat Boyce a friend for 27 years.

But sadly in the early hours of this morning my dear friend Pat lost her battle with Cancer and I will never see her again.  I will never hear her laugh, or see her  twinkling eyes.  Never be able to share another meal with her or go for a drive in the car.

Never stay at each others house again for a fun weekend and get tiddly on sweet white wine and giggle till the early hours of the morning.  I love you Pat and I am going to miss you so much

Sleep tight my friend ...

  3. Aww!! Christina sending you some (((((hugs))))) I know the feeling. I lost my dearest friend a couple of years ago. I had known her from our first office Job together.
    She married but they never had any family and was very fond of our son. When we had our Grandsons they were like another set of Grandparents. Oh! how I miss her, we both do. She still comes into conversation almost every day.
    Thinking about you at this sad time
    Hugs

  22. So sorry for your loss Christina. I make many friends in the course of my work in the NHS but I never ever get used to losing someone who maybe, I don't know that well, but who I may have helped in some small way. The memories you hold are very precious, as in your case, this was someone very dear to you. Hold those memories
    close to your heart and be very strong. I'm thinking of you at this very sad time in your life.
