Last night (18th August) my lovely Elaine passed away.
I am heartbroken but so thankful that she let me into her life 21 years ago, I am thankful that she will not be in any more pain. I am so thankful for the fantastic loving 21 years we spent together, especially the last four and a half years where we have spent every single day and night together travelling and having fun.
Without exception she was loved by everyone that met her, she was so special.
I knew this day would come and I thought I was prepared, but it hits you like a sledgehammer.
She would hate to see me mope and feel sorry for myself as she never did, she was positive about everything she did. Its going to be hard to carry on without her but I will always knowing that she will be watching down on me.
The little doggies were with her right to the end, they have now become even more precious, if that is possible.
I will do a picture montage at a later date, we all need to remember this special lady.
I wont blog for a while, I need some time out, it will never be the same blog without Elaine, plus the spelling and grammar are going to suffer without my editor.
Once again I cant thank the East Cheshire Hospice enough, the nurses were so upset at losing one of their favourite patients. They treated her with such dignity right to the end
Please donate to them in Elaine's memory if you can, the link is here
I cant write anymore at this time.
Thank you xxxx
