A friend of mine passed away yesterday. I hadnt seen her for a while so I wasnt at the top of the call list, so I found out through Facebook :(

She had a 12 year old daughter, my heart just breaks for her.

She had a long battle with cancer, so I hope she's at peace now.

My Grandma passed away on Friday after a short illness. We were very close and it is a terrible loss to me, although it's yet to sink in at all really. I dont feel like I've reacted yet, but I'm sure I will.

I am going to miss her horribly, but I am very fortunate that I got to say goodbye. The last thing she ever said to me was that she loved me and was proud of me.

She was the cleverest, strongest most incredible person I've ever met in my life and she will be missed by many people.


I love you Grandma, I will always love you. Rest in peace.

Sorry to hear about your dog Captain.

I got a call this morning saying a friend of mine took his own life on Tuesday. I think I'm in shock but to be honest I dont think Im entirely surprised. He's been very unhappy for a very long time. I feel quite angry though, as about a year ago when he was really down and his behaviour was very odd, I called the NHS for their advice as I thought he needed to be sectioned, and they told me that I couldnt do anything unless I could persuade him to go into hospital.

Well, in a way that's better than suicide I think - slightly more bearable for the bereaved.

Thanks, Ruth. It is so odd not having him walking around the house. He used to spend so much time with me and it's hard not having him around.

I am ever so sorry to hear about your friend but I am glad to hear that your friend didn't commit suicide. Sad to hear that he died of cirhossis of the liver though. I hope you're coping okay.

Thanks Captain. It's the funeral on Wednesday, feeling very anxious about it, but at least it'll give me a chance to pay my respects.

It's natural to feel that way really, but you will be alright and like you say you will get to pay your respects. :) You'll be okay.

Oh Gosh, it's not a good time of year. My brother-in-law's Mum passed away on Sunday night. She wasnt even ill, it was so unexpected - she went to bed Sunday night as normal, not complaining of so much as a headache, but then when her husband went to wake her in the morning, she was already cold. So, so sad for them. I didnt know her, but I'm so worried about my sister and her partner :(

Thats very sad news. I really hope that the family are coping okay. It's all very very sad indeed.

I was told this evening that my nans brother has cancer of the kidneys and from how mum sounded it doesn't seem like he will make it through. :(
