Just A Quick Post!

Just to let you know my posts & commenting are going to be a bit hit & miss for the next few weeks. I don't usually use my blog for this kind of thing but I just wanted to let my blogging friends no while I might not comment on their blogs!

I got a phone call on Sunday afternoon, from Jess's mom. Jess has been our Katie's best friend for the last 2 & a half years & has practically lived in our house the last 6 months! Her mom was phoning to tell me Jess had passed away in the early hours of Sunday morning & she wanted Katie to be told before the gossip started. Jess wasn't 15 until the end of December, how do we explain to Katie why she has been taken from us? There's just no right answer other than a few swear words that Nige has used over the last few days. 
My baby is in pieces & I can't help! Every time I think of Jess or Katie mentions her I really struggle to hold it together because it could have easily been one of our girls!

Make sure you hug your kids tonight even if they are brats!!

Sorry to off load like this 
hugs shell xx


*EDITED*
I just want to say thank you to you all, I count my blogging friends as friends & not just fellow bloggers. Hope that makes sense!
Katie says "thank you" & sends huge hugs xx

Sorry I haven't seen this sooner Shell - I'm so sorry to hear this - it's so hard when kids have to deal with death at such a young age - there was a birthday memory in our paper just tonight for a friend of my son who would have been 20 today - I can't believe it's 6 years since he died - the death of a child is just so so sad and never leaves you. Sending big hugs to you and Katie xx

Dear Katie,
I am so very sorry to hear the news about your friend, Jess. It is very heartbreaking to lose one so close...it feels like your heart is crushing inside your chest. For some time, you will count every 10th day of the month, and holidays and birthdays will be even harder, leaving a void in your heart as you miss your friend. I just want you to know, Katie, that tho the pain and void never really go away, it will dull some, but sometimes coming back and slapping you in the face! Please hang in there. Make your friend proud of you and continue with the plans you two made together. That would be a wonderful tribute to Katie. Katie will be in your heart always. Try to remember good times together and don't let yourself hide from others. I pray you have peace, Sweetheart. Wish I could hug you. Your Mom's friend,
Manderly
