Today, a mother lost her child. Today, a brother and sister lost their mum, their rock. Today, sisters oceans away lost their baby sister. And I…well today, I lost a dear friend!

It’s been an emotional day. Losing someone close to you makes you look at everything in your own life differently. You hold your kids just that little bit tighter greatful that you are still alive spending time with them. You count your many blessings and you shrug off the small “hardships” that may be troubling you. Because you know what…you’re still alive!

And it doesn’t matter how much money you have or how successful you are at work that counts. No, it’s the effect you’ve had on people in your life. The memories that you’ve been part of. The legacy that you’ve left behind. For we do not know the hour but one thing is certain about life…we’re all going to die.

Until we meet again dear friend, may God and His angels welcome you home with open arms and may your dear soul rest in peace xxx
