On Thursday 22nd of May at 10am UK time, my long time friend Sharon will take her final journey. Her family and friends will say their goodbyes, we can't be there but we will be thinking of her and her family here in NZ. My mum, dad & sister will be there and friends too, thank you for being there when we can't. I really don't have many words to say so I've gone through some photos and I'll share them here, at the end is a poem, I think that says it all.
Me, Sharon, Eileen & Claire
I'm the only one still living in this photo
My hen do
Our wedding day
Eileen's(not in photo) wedding day
The night I met Joe, man we were hot!
Our leaving do, before we came to NZ, the last time we saw you
Sweet dreams dear Sharon
On a day in May I was told that you had died
It can’t be, it’s not true, please tell me that they lied.
A friendship born in high school, where friends are friends forever
And even living a world apart, that bond it could not sever
Through thick and thin, through marriages and all our children too
Memories of laughter and great times we shared with you
New Zealand became our home 10 years ago this year
But all those memories I have, will always be held so dear
I always had you in my heart even though we hardly spoke
And so that chance has sadly passed and now that heart is broke
So rest easy my dear friend and I’ll raise a glass to you
Cheers to you, to Stan, Liam, Gemma and all your family too.
“Death leaves a heartache
no one can heal;
Love leaves a memory no
one can steal”
Dear Stan, Liam & Gemma and to all of Sharon’s family, know that we are thinking of you all every day. We cannot be there in body but we are there in spirit, and we consumed a fair amount of spirits over the years didn’t we?
All of our love and thoughts are with you
Sue, Joe & Michael Webber
♥ I will miss your smiling face♥

Taken too young
I'll be back blogging soon, my heart hasn't been in it these past weeks.
