My BFF died last weekend

Leanne my best female friend died in her sleep yesterday from a brain haemorrhage.

She was my best, best friend. Best. Ever. :cry:

My daughter and I are flying out to see her family, close friends to us, and then sometime I will be back to the forum.

I apologise for not being here very often, but work has been very busy and also I've recently moved.

All the best,
Dulcie

Sorry to hear of your loss. You must be in shock, such a sudden way to lose someone. I wish you and all your friends loved ones well in this difficult time

You dear people have no idea what your hugs to me mean. I am comforted and have such a wonderful feeling of belonging with you. And I thank you so much. :)

Peggy my 11 year old is more deeply affected than me, for she saw Leanne as a kind of older sister and Aunt all rolled into one. I was in tears trying to explain how losing a loved one means, but she sat on my lap and drying my wet eyes, said we will get through our bereavement together. My daughter has an understanding that belies her age, and I am so grateful.

One of my friends gave me a very good booklet on bereavement though parts of it are difficult, at lease for now. I am no stanger to death for my mother went last Boxing Day, but the circumstances of her death were far different. It's all bereavement anyway, and what I have to do is not hurry the grief for my dear friend, but let it ride.

Again, thank you my friends.

Apologies for double-posting as I've no way of editing... my travel plans have been changed for this evening and we won't be flying out until nearer the time of Leanne's funeral. For the time being it's best we stay at home until further notice.

Thank you.

Just when I thought I couldn't go down any deeper into gloom over the loss of my dearest friend, I get a letter which my girlfriend had the good sense to intercept as she knew I'd be upset - but one look at her weeping made me realise something was wrong. And then I snatched the email and read what was intended for me, and I just got pulled right down again with her negative mindset.

*Sad face* :low:
