See you later my Friend :(

Sadly a few days ago a vey good mate of mine lost his battle with a brain tumour :(

Fred has been my mate for 25 years!!! Through this time he has been there for me through thick and thin!! Now we weren't the kind of mates that catch up every day, more like once or twice a year but whenever we did it was always as if we had seen each other only yesterday!!

Fred was the guy who always had a smile on his face and a positive word about everything. He was an eternal optimist and believed anything could be overcome, no negatives for my friend!! He loved his family and made sure that they had plenty of quality time together!! He and my friend Deb were soul mates, I truly believe that!!

Fred you have made a lasting impression in my heart and I will never forget the great times we have shared over the years!! I will not say goodbye but I will say See you later my Friend!! xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Do I have a News Years Resolution..well the little poem below probably sums it up perfectly!!

“Another fresh new year is here . . .
Another year to live!
To banish worry, doubt, and fear,
To love and laugh and give!

This bright new year is given me
To live each day with zest . . .
To daily grow and try to be
My highest and my best!

I have the opportunity
Once more to right some wrongs,
To pray for peace, to plant a tree,
And sing more joyful songs!”

William Arthur Ward
