Today we said goodbye to a special friend

Posted by kel @ sweet treats at 10:08 PM
One of my friends was laid to rest today.

After battling alcoholism and depression she made the choice to end her life last week.

Anyone that came to know her was richer for having met her; she made it her mission in life to make others happy and she was able to do this through her vivacious personality and infectious humour.

The celebrant at the funeral today gave us these words:

"We did not judge her decisions in life, nor will we judge her in death".

My dear, beautiful girl...none of us may ever understand the demons you faced; but we are thankful we had you for as long as we did. Anyone who was lucky enough to meet you will never ever forget you. You left us behind but we know you are looking down on us from wherever you are with a smile on your face.

Rest in peace sweetheart...until we meet again.

Hi Kel,

Sorry to hear about your loss. I hope you can take comfort that your friend has now been released from the demons she was facing.

My life has been exposed to a few friends and family members suffering from depression and all have had different outcomes. I have felt the pain and heartache...

Remember the good times and her as the person she was.

My thoughts are with you...
