........would have been my parents 63rd wedding anniversary, they were married for almost 50 years when my Dad died in 1999. Miss you both so much, always loved and never forgoton.
Today also marks 2 years since my lovely sister in law, Lynn, lost her long hard battle with breast cancer. Lynn was more like a 3rd sister to me and she was a fantastic friend. She is missed so much and even though it's 2 years since she passed, I remember the last 24 hours spent with her as if it was yesterday. I was just so pleased I could keep the promise I made to her the day she was diagnosed, to be with her through it all, no matter how long it would take, and if it came to it, I would be there holding her hand as she took her last breath. It was the hardest thing I've ever done in my life, but I did it, just for Lynn. It was rough and at times, a really hard 6 years, but I feel so honoured that she chose me to be the one to go through it all with her. Lynn was one of the strongest, most positive women I've ever known, and I will always have so much admiration for her.
This picture was taken on a girly weekend trip to Butlins in Skegness, what a great weekend we had, along with a couple of other friends. She'd already had a mastectomy and gone through the chemo and radio therapy, but she could always manage a smile and make people laugh.
Miss you so much Lynn, and it still feels like I've lost my right arm, there's a massive hole in my life now, that no one can or ever will fill.
