Please if you do have a friend who has lost someone very dear, please do talk to them about their loss, don't be afraid. I am thankful I do have a couple of friends that do remind me of some lovely memories. Yes, it is a gift…a lovely gift and I do thank them There is others that tell me its time to let go and move on, and even one that has told me they are dead and buried, get over it!! The last 17 months have been the worst in my life. I have struggled with my grief, but with some wonderful friends, my doctor and some counselling I am moving slowly forward.
