|My friend Cheryl was such a lovely person
we first met when I was made her manager
she was what I would call a little hard nut
always hard in her outward emotions but inside
she was as soft as a newborn puppy or kitten
we shared a lot, good times and bad
lots and lots of hugs along the way
both spending nights with each other
when our personal lives got a bit much
she coerced me into spending the weekend
at at a 60's concert...LOL
they put sugar on my pancakes and I hate sugar
few years ago, when I got rushed to hospital
after ringing my (then) husband, I rang her
he couldn't leave his meeting and without
hesitation she arrived, stayed with me
walked down holding my hand as I went to theatre
she was there when I came round again
from the loss of my child
few weeks later, she rang me all excited
told me I had to pack my things for a week
she'd paid for a holiday in Spain for us both
what she didn't know was that I had just
accepted a new job starting the same day
oh dear...dilemma...I rang my step-father
asked his advice..and he said
you need a holiday, you need each other
you will always find another job, go on holiday
so that's what I did and the company suggested
I start the week after..
Cheryl suffered from eczema really badly
all over her body and would never wear anything
that showed her skin...but she didn't get away
with that whilst we were on holiday..
I hid all her clothes...LOL
with the sun and the sea, it started to clear up
we had a fantastic time....she was such a good friend...
On Monday just gone (1 year ago)...things got too much for her and she committed suicide....a few weeks back I remember laughing in here about the fact that she was here one night and we were using a banana for a demonstration on something....such fun we had...
I miss you Cheryl
Some friendships can never ever be forgotten.
