Just a quick post as I wanted to share a lovely poem that I have remembered for years and years and find it somewhat comforting on days like today.
Today sees the 14th anniversary of when my best friend lost her long battle with cancer. Justine was absolutely amazing - for someone so young to have such an awful thing happen, she really didn't let it get her down and carried on with life as best she could. She was diagnosed when she was 3 and told she only had months, but in true Justine fashion, she battled on until she was 10.
She really has been an inspiration in my life, and even today, 14 years on, I remember her for her smile, determination and wicked sense of humor! She achieved so much in her short happy life and that really does make me happy!
Those we love don't pass away
They walk beside us everyday
In our hearts their memories are kept
To love and cherish and never forget.
