Her last day...

Today was the last day of my best friend. 

The feeling is so fresh and I'd like to go back to last year and be blissfully unaware of what awaits. If I did that I would have called her up to tell her how much I love her and how special she is to me. 

However, I wouldn't want to go through the acute pain of losing her again. It was consuming and heartbreaking. For everyone and more for some. A lot of people built their lives around her and it all came crashing down this evening last year. We are all still building our lives back. They will never be what they were, but they will be better because she was a part of them.

I will be celebrating her life tonight. I'll remember how special she made my life and how I'll never forget her. I might cry a little, but I'll be toasting to Shannon tonight.


  1. Love you Des! Shannon was a great person and will never be forgotten. She will always be in your heart!

  2. so very well said Des. And she knew how much you loved her and how special she was to you. hands down:) It's amazing how quickly it all comes back and how our lives would never ever be the same. Sending hugs to you in O'Canada.
