On this day five years ago, I learnt of the sudden death of my best friend W. The week before we had been at the gym together, she thought the ache in her arm was from doing to many repititions on one of the machines. Unfortunately it wasn't it was a warning sign of the heart attack she was about to have. She seemed to recover fairly well and was making slow but steady progress. She was as crotchety, demanding and controlling as ever lol. My car broke down (the one I'd not long before bought from her daughter) and after the AA had fixed it I drove round to see her, for what turned out to be the last time. She seemed fine. I got a phone call the next day to say she had died in the night. She was so full of nervous energy and sheer determination to make things go her way, it seemed impossible that she was gone. She never got to meet or even hear about Little Prince, and I'm sure she would have loved him, even though he would have driven her mad lol. And now she won't ever know about our new little one either :-(
Its been a long time W but I still miss you.
