View Full Version : My best friend died this morning...
Her name was Jacqui. We have been friends for twenty years. We had our first children a few months apart and spent nearly every day together, going to playgroups and markets, shopping and just being together like friends do. When she had her second baby, I held her hand and wept for joy as he entered the world and when I had my daughter she did the same for me. She is godmother to my children as I am to hers. We have shared our whole lives and never could I have another friend so dear and special. There was no warning, she was here yesterday. She fell ill and it turned out that her appendix was septic, poisoning her system. They operated twice. But everything went wrong - and now she's gone. I held her hand just like I did when her son was born, but this time saying goodbye. This time with tears of pain and heartache instead of joy. We surrounded her with love. Her poor kids. Her husband. I don't know what to say or how I should feel - I'm just sad, and angry and I wish I could have her back. No actually, to tell you the truth, I'm ****ed as hell - I feel like ripping things apart or punching someone. I feel like screaming. I'm angry at the hospital for not saving her, and I'm angry at God for taking her.
Good bye my sister, my soul, my friend. You are mummy to our angel babies now. And I will love and watch out for your babies here on earth, I swear that to you. In my heart and in my dreams Jac. I was blessed to have you in my life. Leanne
I'm so so sorry. I really am.
My thoughts are with you and her family. Be kind to yourself and allow yourself to grieve however you need to.
I am so sorry for the loss of your best friend. I am so sorry to her husband and children for the loss of their lover, mother, and friend.
All my thoughts are with you all. :hugs:
I just had to give you some of these
my deepest sympathy and for her family too
Im so so so sorry for your loss. Nothing can take away the pain you are feeling.
I too lost my best friend 3 years ago in a car accident along with her husband and it was one of the hardest things i have ever had to deal with.
All i can say is go with what you are feeling. If you want to punch something, punch it, if you want to scream, scream. Try not to bottle it up. It will end up coming out in the wrong way.
Sending you love, comfort and hugs.
If you ever need to talk pm me. xoxo
I'm so so sorry Leanne... I'm in tears for you and your friend, and her family...
Rest in peace... :(
Love is all you need
I am so sorry for your loss (and for her families loss) :crying:

im so very sorry. I have tears how sad
OMG. My heart is breaking for you and her family. You do whatever it is you need to do. If you need to get angry and scream then do it. If you need to hit something then do it (just make sure that is soft so you don't hurt yourself). Don't bottle up your feelings, let them out.
My heart and thoughts are with you all.
I am so sorry for your loss :hugs:
Your post was a beautiful tribute to her.
That is so horrible Leanne! Im not surprised you are angry and sad and everything else. What a tragedy! So tragic for her husband, children and the rest of her family. I hope they are all ok. Im sure they will be ok in time with you keeping your eye over them.
It just makes me think to value the friends and family I have in MY life now as you just never know what will happen.
It sounds like the world is a far worse place now that she isnt in it. Very very sad, and I will be thinking of you!
Take care of yourself too.
I'm so sorry! RIP Jacqui!
there's no way you 'should' feel, however you need to grieve is the 'right' way
I am so sorry.

it sounds like you were truely blessed to have such a beautiful and wonderful friendship. I am so sorry it was cut so short. Many people will go through life never finding such friendship.
