Although this isn't a personal message, i'd like to mention that today was the funeral of footballer Paul Sykes.

Paul was just 28 when he died whilst playing for Folkestone Invicta against Margate on Tuesday 12th April 2005. Although I never knew him or saw him play, he was well known amongst Kents football fans.

He started his football career as an apprentice at Gillingham FC, before going on to play for Welling, Margate, Dover and Dartford, before joining Folkestone Invicta. Many older Gills fans remember him playing for Gillingham Youth team and subsequently followed his career all ove the county.

Paul may not have been a well known superstar, but he was an honest player who enjoyed playing football, and he died doing something he loved.

RIP Paul
Never Look Back

A respectful nod to my husband's friend D, who left us suddenly a year ago. He was only 30 and was one of the genuinely nicest people I was ever privileged to meet. Peace.

My darling "puppy" and best friend, Elliot, gone to play in doggy heaven with the other pups. Love you boy.

One day we'll all meet again. Always missed xxx

n_s, my darling; when people lay dying, they stop being afraid. I know this. Don't fret, all is well.

Much love.

Yes, of course he was scared at first, even if he had been ill for a while. But then there's the acceptance, then there's the going to sleep. By the time we move on, the pain and fear have already stopped.

Don't think about his fear and suffering now, me darling, it's a useless pastime. Think of your best memories of him. I'm just lighting a candle to include him, with love - just say if you don't want me to?
