“I consider myself one of the fortunate ones who got to say goodbye to my family and friends.
Ok, maybe a long goodbye.
To reassure my daughters that they are strong; will always be in my heart and in my soul.
I want them to know I am so proud of who they are and what wonderful young women they have become.
Hope through the last weeks they have seen the importance of family and friends.
To my wonderful husband Andy, I want him always to remember how very much he has meant to me through the good times and bad times, especially these last months.
To my family and siblings, I have the best family in the world.
To my friends, you have brought so much joy into my life.
It was always a dream of mine to go to Europe when I finished University.
That dream was realized a few times now.
A personal observation - Now I don’t have to worry about being in prison without a razor.
( a recurring nightmare of mine )
I promise you all that I will not come back to haunt you, instead I am flying with the Angels”
