My dear, beautiful, wonderful, brave & courageous Aunt. You've brought me to tears for the first time in almost a decade. At first because of your passing away, knowing that I shall never again see the beaming smile you so often gave me growing up. But now the tears are happy ones, as I am flooded with memories of your love. Kind memories of the fun I had with you & your two children, cousins I love & miss very much. I regret not seeing you in so long, or calling enough. But the memory of seeing you in Dubai all those years ago are strong (seriously, not many Aunt's go clubbing with their nephew & enjoy it!), and the memory of the last time I spoke to you on Skype, when you saw my son for the first time, and the joy of catching up on our lives. A huge ocean kept us distant, but know that I loved you always, and will never forget the life lessons you never knew you taught me. In a moment I shall wipe the tears from my eyes, but your memory will last forever. I love you, and miss you X thank you x
And it seems to me you lived your life
Like a candle in the wind
Never knowing who to cling to
When the rain set in!
Dear Amal, you left us too early before our dreams realized! Our friendship goes beyond the times and Joy and William are the best memory you gave us. We love you so much and we will do for ever.
